Excerpt: To build a robust visual tracking method it is important to consider issues such as low observation resolution and variation in the target object’s shape. When we capture an object moving fast in a video camera motion blur is observed. This paper introduces a visual trajectory estimation method using blur characteristics in the 3D space. We acquire a movement speed vector based on the shape of a motion blur region. This method can extract both the position and speed of the moving object from an image frame, and apply them to a visual tracking process using Kalman filter. We estimated the 3D

Excerpt: At present, no agreement on a precise definition of agility within the sports science community exists. The term is applied to a broad range of sport contexts, but with such great inconsistency, it further complicates our understanding of what trainable components may enhance agility. A new definition of agility is proposed: “a rapid whole-body movement with change of velocity or direction in response to a stimulus”. Agility has relationships with trainable physical qualities such as strength, power and technique, as well as cognitive components such as visual-scanning techniques,

Excerpt: One basic question in brain plasticity research is whether individual life experience in the normal population can affect very early sensory-perceptual processing. Athletes provide a possible model to explore plasticity of the visual cortex as athletic training in confrontational ball games is quite often accompanied by training of the visual system. We asked professional badminton players to watch video clips related to their training experience and predict where the ball would land and examined whether they differed from non-player controls in the elicited C1, a visual evoked potential index

Excerpt: In this research, time optimal control is considered for the hit motion of a badminton robot during a serve operation. For this task the racket always starts at rest in a given position and has to move to a target state, defined by a target position and a non-zero target velocity. The goal is to complete these motions in as little time as possible, yet without violating bounds on the actuator. To find controllers satisfying these requirements, a reinforcement learning approach has been implemented, using a Natural Actor-Critic (NAC) reinforcement learning algorithm. This approach is experiment

Excerpt: There are a few sports, and badminton is one of them, that are interesting to watch and play but are nevertheless underrated in worldwide TV coverage. Despite the well known popularity of badminton, it is very rarely on TV channels. One of the reasons was that long games with many rallies would be interesting to an expert but not to an ordinary TV audience. Furthermore, long playing time, without many breaks, is challenging for the players and also very unpopular for sponsors who would like their commercials to be seen between games. The duration of the games is not easily predictable and live

Excerpt: General, rudimentary and unsophisticated forms of notation have existed for centuries. Hutchinson (1970) cited evidence that, for at least five centuries, attempts had been made to devise and develop a system of movement notation. Further, the Egyptians, thousands of years ago, made use of heiroglyphs to read dance, and the Romans employed a primitive method of notation for recording salutatory gestures. Historical texts give substantial evidence of a crude form of dance notation much later, in about the fifteenth century. Thornton ( 1971) stated that the early attempts at movement notation ma

Excerpt: There is much discussion in sports on whether certain behavior should be considered Fair Play. This moral judgment on Fair Play is influenced by the conceptualization of the term Fair Play as either “respect for the rules” or “respect for the spirit of the game,” as well as by other determinants. To uncover the moral judgment of athletes and which conceptualization of Fair Play dominates in practice, a factorial survey approach is used. The act and the level of the match played a role in the judgment, as well as the gender of the athlete. Our results showed that both conceptualizations

Excerpt: Overhead racquet sports place high amount of stress on the dominant shoulder. Over a period of time, to allow for the extra degrees of movement necessary for an effective stroke or serve, the shoulder girdle on the dominant side of such players undergo certain postural adaptations. At the same time, it has to be firm enough to prevent any hyper mobility and injury. Thus, ‘throwers paradox’ i.e., a fragile balance exists between mobility and stability. If this balance is disturbed it can lead to injuries. Hence, to assess whether lack of spinal mobility, posture and scapular symmetr

Excerpt: The incidence of sports injury is higher during competitions or games than in practice. Especially in female adolescents, the risk of anterior cruciate ligaments (ACL) injury rapidly increases during games. The magnitude and patterns of ground reaction force (GRF) affect the knee valgus moment, which potentially increases mechanical stress on the ACL. Some studies recently estimated the GRF without using a force platform or quantified the physical load during game situations by using an inertiasensor. However, the competitive movement with greater load for peripubertal players is unknown. The

Excerpt: Representational momentum (RM) has been found to be magnified in experts (e.g., sport players) with respect to both real and implied motion in expert-familiar domains. However, it remains unclear whether similar effects can be achieved in expert-unfamiliar domains, especially within the context of implied motion. To answer this question, we conducted two independent experiments using an implied motion paradigm and examined the expert effects of badminton training on RM in both adult and child players. In Experiment 1, we used a cross-sectional design and compared RM between adult professional

Excerpt: Most rehydration studies prohibit fluid ingestion during the preceding bout of dehydrating exercise. However, an athlete using a widely researched carbohydrate-electrolyte sports drink as a nutritional strategy is likely to consume the fluid both during and after exercise, warranting a study design with administration of test fluids during a preceding exercise bout and recovery. This is further enhanced with the incorporation of wind speed to mimic outdoor conditions. Improved performance, usually extrapolated from improved recovery, was directly quantified in this investigation with an endur

Excerpt: We consider the problem of energy-optimal time allocation of a series of point-to-point motions. When performing a series of point-to-point motions, the individual execution time of each motion is, in many cases, free to choose as long as the total execution time of the series of point-to-point motions is not exceeded. This paper presents an algorithm to compute the time allocated to each motion in a series of point-to-point motions in an energy-optimal way. The algorithm is demonstrated on a technology demonstration test facility at Flanders’ Mechatronics Technology Centre.

Excerpt: The aerodynamic behavior of badminton shuttlecocks differs considerably from other ball, racket or projectile sports. Being a bluff body, the shuttlecock generates high aerodynamic drag and steep flight trajectory. Despite the popularity of the badminton game, scant information is available in the public domain about shuttlecock aerodynamics and its flight trajectory. The primary objective of this work was to construct the flight trajectory of a synthetic and feather shuttlecocks for a range of wind speeds under non-spinning condition based on aerodynamic data obtained experimentally.

Excerpt: In this paper, we designed and implemented IoT sensors based badminton motion analysis and training system that can be readily used by badminton players with PC. Unlike the traditional badminton training system which uses signals of the flags by coach, the proposed electronic training system used IoT sensors to automatically detect and analysis the motions for badminton players. The proposed badminton motion analysis and training system has the advantage with low power, because it communicates with the program through BLE communication. The badminton motion analysis system automatically measu

Excerpt: This paper gives an insight on the design and development of a mobile measurement device to measure the elbow joint movement of a Badminton player. Badminton is one of the fastest racket-based sport. Since a human eye alone is not capable of capturing all these fast movements the usage of high processing optometric system became a popularity but the downside is these systems are expensive and large in size. The proposed solution is to develop a reasonably cheap and small size mobile measurement device utilizing the miniature sensor technology which can perform the task capturing the badminton

Excerpt: In this study, we developed a novel badminton-specific speed test (BST). The test was designed to mimic match play. The test starts in the center of the court and consists of 5 maximal actions to sensors located in each of the 4 corners of the court. The 20 actions are performed in randomized order as dictated by computer screen shots displayed 1 second after completion of the previous action. We assessed day-to-day variation in elite players, and specificity of the test was evaluated by comparing 30-m sprint performance and time to complete the BST in 20 elite players, 21 skilled players, and

Excerpt: Upon first impressions, badminton is a highly explosive sport, involving a unique movement technique over a relatively small court area. At various skill levels, Coad and co-workers ( 1979) and Docherty ( 1982) have found average rally length to be around five seconds. A rally was typically followed by an average recovery period of five to ten seconds. However, elite players expect rallies to be considerably longer at their level. High class competitive matches can last up to one hour. Given these combined elements of power and endurance, the physiological requirements of badminton may not be

Excerpt: The first important point to consider is that psychological skills can be learned. It is not just a case of discarding performers who under-achieve because they lack confidence, cannot concentrate or fail to handle the pressure of competition. Performers can learn to be more confident, they can learn to concentrate better, and they can learn how to be more composed in pressure situations. Young performers may simply develop these skills over time, perhaps as part of the maturation process; others may need some help and guidance, perhaps from a sport psychologist.

Excerpt: Tennis was first played in Spain towards the end of the nineteenth century at the Universal Exhibition of Barcelona in 1888. A year later, the Royal Tennis Club of Barcelona was founded, now the oldest tennis club still working in Spain. In 1902 the Recreation Club of San Sebastian and the English Club of Madrid were founded. By 1909 the basis of the Royal Tennis Federation of Spain, as it is now known, was fully working and four years later became a member of the Lawn Tennis Association, which in those days established the rules for worldwide tennis playing. Even as late as 1969 the Spanish

Excerpt: Sports tournaments, particularly events in the racket sports, tend to be distributed throughout the world and over the complete year. This has been encouraged by the growth in televised competitions for professional players and flourishing indoor as well as outdoor tournaments. It is facilitated by the ease of contemporary air-flight which makes it possible to travel quickly from one side of the globe to the other, for example by means of long-haul flights between Europe and Asia or Australia. The potential financial rewards on offer in sports competitions tend to predominate over the biologic

Excerpt: The presence of minor foot malfunctions has rarely been the object of concern to society in general or to the athlete in particular. Only in cases of serious morphological alterations or injuries directly related to the foot is a treatment administered and most of the time this is limited to the surgical field, ruling out the orthopodiatric field as an alternative therapy (Hoy et al., 1994).

Excerpt: This paper proposes a method to estimate position of a small moving object. It is difficult to fit dynamic model of a target object moving fast and anomalously. We focuses on a phenomenon that a high-velocity moving object is observed as a line-shaped region in captured images by motion blur. Shape-from-silhouette technique is applied to estimate the 3D trajectory of the observed lines. We choose a badminton shuttle just after being shot as the target object, and confirm the effectiveness of our proposed method.
