  • Instrumented IMU Device
    The increasing interest in skateboarding as a competitive sport (Street League Skateboarding and Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games, as well as USD 4.8 billion worth industry) requires innovative means to provide an objective judgement on the tricks. Sk8pro is an innovative skateboarding tricks classification system that provides the mean to address the aforesaid issue. The system integrates the use of IMU sensors as well as cutting edge machine learning methods to provide unbiased judgement or classification tricks by the skateboarders.

  • Instrumented Bow
    A good performance bow is highly dependent on its stability to transfer potential energy to kinetic energy of an arrow efficiently. Less movement of the bow during shooting leads to more stable transfer of energy thus tuning of the bow must be conducted scientifically. Instrumented bow can help bow designers to measure several points on the bow and tune the bow to the specific shooting styles of an archer. The system is equipped with wireless transfer technology for mobility. The data can be read from a smart phone or laptop computer.
