In this article we’ll take a better look at the user interface of the wearable sport sensor that is the QuASP™ and how it can be used with the application.
Step 1: Connecting the QuASP™ motion and position sensor
After you’ve turned on your QuASP™ device and placed it on your body, we can start taking measurements of speed, acceleration and position. For sports like tennis and golf you will want to place it on the wrist because this is where the most important measurements will come from. If you’re a soccer player, for example, you will want to place it on the back.
After this easy and short setup, your measurements are shown in the QuASP™ wearable sport sensor application on your tablet or smartphone or laptop.
Step 2: View your results on the wearable sport sensor application
Your team page is displayed and anyone’s QuASP™ that’s connected to the team page’s unique ID will start showing up in the application as soon as they turn it on.
To make the main screen specific to your sport, just select the sport from the selection menu.
So this means that, for example, if you choose tennis, you will see calculation values specifically aimed at tennis players.
The main screen consists of 4 sections:
- the field in the top left corner
- the detailed player view below it
- the plugin screen which contains video, sport specific applications or something you’ve developed yourself
- The play/pause, fast-forward, rewind and record section right at the bottom
The field utilizes the centimetric precision that is really, in our humble opinion, the coolest and most unique feature of the QuASP™ wearable sport sensor. You can see each player moving on the field in real-time if you have the hub (the pro edition) or after the match if you’re using the light version.
The orange circle signifies the position of the player calculated with the wearable sport sensor, whilst the traces (the thing that looks like the tail) show the positions of the player of the last minute so you can see how the player ended up being in the position he is in. In essence, this will allow you to review whether the tactic or play set out was actually implemented or not.
Next, using the control buttons you can easily pause/play if you need some additional time to review the match. You can even replay your beautiful goal over and over again.
Other sports. Although there’s a soccer field and tennis court up right now, you can easily select the field of your choice. Or, if you don’t play a sport using a field, like golf, you can use a satellite or terrain overlay.
Next to the field you can select up to 2 players wearing the QuASP™ wearable sport sensor and who’s measurements you want to view while watching the match on your screen.
At any point in time you can see the exact measurements of speed, strength, angular velocity and acceleration. Easily compare the strength of the shot in the 23rd minute and 34th second of 2 players at the same time and feedback this information in real-time.
Want to see more than 2 player’s stats? Simply click on the Players tab on the top menu. See step 4 for further details.
Step 3: Individual player data
Determining the exact measurements of each player is done through the detailed player view.
In real-time measurements of strength, acceleration, speed and angular velocity are measured and displayed as a value or in graph mode. In version 2 it will also be possible to attach peripherals such as heart-rate monitors to the body and have them displayed on the player view.
The most important features of this screen are the following:
- Details of each player (photo, position, age, past injuries, last training date, last match)
- Real-time vitals of the player
- strength (MET)
- acceleration (m/s2)
- speed (m/h)
- angular velocity (degrees/s)
- Graphs of each of the vitals can be selected for closer inspectino
- Concussion watch showing the impact of a hit in the case of a high contact sport (this feature is planned for version 2)
Step 4: Compare players
The fourth screen on the application shows a comparison of the values for all players.
Step 5: Own a QuASP™
Pre order your own QuASP motion sensor and make use of the free app described in this article.
