The difficulty of mountainbike downhill trails is a subjective perception. However, sports-associations and mountainbike park operators attempt to group trails into different levels of difficulty with scales like the Singletrail-Skala (S0-S5) or colored scales (blue, red, black, ...) as proposed by The International Mountain Bicycling Association. Inconsistencies in difficulty grading occur due to the various scales, different people grading the trails, differences in topography, and more. We… 
Data-driven Summarization of Broadcasted Cycling Races by Automatic Team and Rider Recognition
This paper proposes a methodology for data-driven summarization, which allows end-users to query for personalized stories of a race, tailored to their needs (such as the length of the clip and the riders and/or teams that they are interested in).
Towards Risk Indication In Mountain Biking Using Smart Wearables
This late-breaking work presents a concept for a crash risk indication application for sports smartwatches that will provide constant feedback and an unobtrusive signal to the athlete when an unusually high risk is detected.


Deep Convolutional Neural Networks on Multichannel Time Series for Human Activity Recognition
This method adopts a deep convolutional neural networks (CNN) to automate feature learning from the raw inputs in a systematic way and makes it outperform other HAR algorithms, as verified in the experiments on the Opportunity Activity Recognition Challenge and other benchmark datasets.
ImageNet classification with deep convolutional neural networks
A large, deep convolutional neural network was trained to classify the 1.2 million high-resolution images in the ImageNet LSVRC-2010 contest into the 1000 different classes and employed a recently developed regularization method called "dropout" that proved to be very effective.

Deep Learning for Sensor-based Activity Recognition: A Survey
Activity Recognition from User-Annotated Acceleration Data
This is the first work to investigate performance of recognition algorithms with multiple, wire-free accelerometers on 20 activities using datasets annotated by the subjects themselves, and suggests that multiple accelerometers aid in recognition.
Convolutional Neural Networks for Human Activity Recognition Using Body-Worn Sensors
This work proposes a novel deep neural network for human activity recognition (HAR), and finds that applying convolutions per sensor channel and per body-worn device improves the capabilities of convolutional neural network (CNNs).
Convolutional Neural Networks for human activity recognition using mobile sensors
An approach to automatically extract discriminative features for activity recognition based on Convolutional Neural Networks, which can capture local dependency and scale invariance of a signal as it has been shown in speech recognition and image recognition domains is proposed.
Automated Recognition and Difficulty Assessment of Boulder Routes
Due to fast distribution of powerful, portable processing devices and wearables, the development of learning-based IoT-applications for athletic or medical usage is accelerated, but there are only a few systems which provide qualitative services, e.g., detecting malpositions to avoid injuries or to optimize training success.
Batch Normalization: Accelerating Deep Network Training by Reducing Internal Covariate Shift
Applied to a state-of-the-art image classification model, Batch Normalization achieves the same accuracy with 14 times fewer training steps, and beats the original model by a significant margin.
A Comparison of Feature Extraction Methods for the Classification of Dynamic Activities From Accelerometer Data
The findings show that, although the wavelet transform approach can be used to characterize nonstationary signals, it does not perform as accurately as frequency-based features when classifying dynamic activities performed by healthy subjects.
