Two accelerometers are used to measure the motion of the golf club. The accelerometers are mounted in the shaft of the golf club. Each measures the acceleration along the axis of the shaft of the golf club. Interpreting the measurement with the context of the double pendulum model of the golf swing, it is useful to resolve the resulting signals into differential and common mode components. The differential mode is a measure of the rotational kinetic energy of the golf club, and this can be used… Expand
An Accelerometer Based Instrumentation of the Golf Club: Comparative Analysis of Golf Swings
The motion of the golf club is measured using two accelerometers mounted at different points along the shaft of the golf club, both sensitive to acceleration along the axis of the shaft. TheExpand
Measuring Tempo, Rhythm, Timing, and the Torques that Generate Power in the Golf Swing
This paper summarizes two previously published technical papers describing what can be learned from measuring the motion of the golf club using two accelerometers. The sensors are mounted atExpand
A sensor-aided self coaching model for uncocking improvement in golf swing
TLDR
Experimental results show that the proposed system has the ability to accurately calculate the wrist angle in real time and also that it can be applied to a practical self-coaching system to improve the uncocking motion. Expand
ClimbAX: skill assessment for climbing enthusiasts
TLDR
ClimbAX - a climbing performance analysis system that aims for replicating expert assessments and thus represents a first step towards an automatic coaching system for climbing enthusiasts. Expand
Assessing Motor Performance with PCA
Information about the motor performance, i.e. how well an activity is performed, is valuable information for a variety of novel applications in Activity Recognition (AR). Its assessment represents aExpand
Activity recognition in naturalistic environments using body-worn sensors
TLDR
A novel approach to the representation and modelling of movement data based on a data-driven methodology that has applications in activity recognition, behaviour imaging, and skill assessment in ubiquitous computing is developed. Expand

The role of the shaft in the golf swing.
TLDR
The conclusion is, contrary to popular belief, that shaft bending flexibility plays a minor dynamic role in the golf swing and that the conventional tests associated with shaft specification are peculiarly inappropriate to the swing dynamics. Expand
