Friday Jun 2 - Consumer - Room J
Major sports are becoming more competitive every day and athletes already rely on the latest technological advances to push their performance even further. Augmented Reality offers an intuitive, non-obstructive way of helping athletes to utilize their full potential by practicing smarter and more efficiently than ever before. PuttView, the world’s first Augmented Reality solution for Golf Putting Practice, will be used as an example for how AR can be utilized for performance assessment, as a new way of interacting between player and coach and as an individualized guide for continuous improvement. Drawing on the experiences from PuttView, the talk will highlight further potential applications of AR for enhancing athlete performance in other sports.
