Research presented in this paper details the development of an integrated system, which allowed presentation of meaningful data to coaches and their swimmers in a training environment. The integrated system comprised of a wireless sensor node, vision components, a wireless audio communication module and force measurement technologies. A trigger function was(More)
This research was conducted to allow real-time transmission, processing and presentation of data to swimming coaches and subsequently their swimmers in a training environment. This was done using an integrated system which comprised of a wireless sensor node, vision components and both force and pressure measurement technologies. Filtering approaches and(More)
Reliable manufacture depends among other aspects on the supply of correct parts to the different manufacturing processes. In this paper a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system used for material handling in harsh environments is presented. The system enforces business rules to guarantee that only correct parts are supplied to the assembly line also(More)
Businesses rely on information being accessed, processed, transferred and stored in order to support decision making activities. When any of these activities is poorly supported the ability to adapt to unexpected changes is reduced resulting in risk during decision activities. If these risks were to materialize consequences can be considerable from an(More)
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a powerful tool used in several application areas. In this paper a method to embed a passive Ultra High Frequecy (UHF) RFID chip within Printed Circuit Boards (PCB) is presented, along with how this can be used to improve the quality and tracking of boards along the electronics supply chain. Embedding of the RFID tag(More)
Performance analysis is essential for the ongoing development of elite swimmers. Current methods of analysis do not provide the coach with an accurate system for determining a swimmer's position. This research was conducted to allow transmission, processing and presentation of the swimmer's attitude, velocity and position. A Kalman filter was integrated(More)
An overview of the development of a wireless sensor network (WSN) used to monitor swimmers performance is presented in this paper. The WSN is based on the functional and non-functional requirements of the user. It has been designed to monitor multiple swimmers performance simultaneously, providing feedback to the coaches and swimmers in real-time. The(More)
