New publication: "Ubiquitous Computing in Sports and Physical Activity—Recent Trends and Developments"


The newest paper from our team mentions and discuss the advancements in ubiquitous computing in sports and physical activity in the past 5 years. Thus, recent developments in wearable sensors, cloud computing and artificial intelligence tools have been the pillars for a major change in the ways sport-related analyses are performed. The focus of our analysis is wearable technology, computer vision solutions for markerless tracking and their major contribution to the process of acquiring more representative data from uninhibited actions in realistic ecological conditions. We selected relevant literature on the applications of such approaches in various areas of sports and physical activity while outlining some limitations of the present-day data acquisition and data processing practices and the resulting sensors’ functionalities, as well as the limitations to the data-driven informed decision making in the current technological and scientific framework. A must read this year!
