Umfeld

Flexible and wearable sensors are getting closer to market and hybrid flexible electronics will be integrated in many end-user products. Especially in competitive sports these new electronic sensors elements offer numerous possibilities for increasing performance. Garments with hybrid flexible sensors and actuators are able to track motions in real-time and give instant and meaningful feedback to athletes and coaches – all this in the comfort of the athletes usual training environment. Within this work there will be a strong cooperation with the Robert Bosch GmbH and ITK Engineering GmbH. The textile-based sensors and actuators will be provided in order to enable quick prototyping and measurable results.

 

Aufgabe

The primary goal of this thesis is the conceptual design and a prototype of a hybrid flexible electronic system to track an athlete's motion during javelin. Javelin imposes special challenges to any sensory equipment, due to the high velocities and forces during the throw. Those challenges need to be addresses in this this thesis. In order to find die optimal sensor setup and configuration, you will collaborate with domain experts and athletes. The collected sensor data should be processed by a programmable microcontroller and send of for further processing and visualization.

 

Voraussetzungen

  • Experience with microcontroller programming and integrated circuit design
  • Motivation and interest in solving technical problems independently
