Datenanalyse


SFISM conducts applied research and development in the field of measurement technologies and data analysis in close collaboration with engineers from Bern University of Applied Sciences BFH. As its research and development activities focus on the needs of national high-performance sport, the latter benefits from the tailored services offered by SFISM.

The facilities available at SFISM are favourable for innovative work in this area. For some years now, SFISM's sports scientists have been working together with engineers from Bern University of Applied Sciences BFH. This collaboration also benefits from SFISM's close ties with sports governing bodies, and consequently to athletes and coaches at the highest national level.

To further strengthen this position, BFH and SFISM founded the Centre for Technologies in Sports and Medicine in the spring of 2015.

Research and development

The development activities of the unit are primarily directed towards game sports. One of these projects, StreamTeam, is funded by the Hasler Foundation and is being run in collaboration with the University of Basel: http://www.20min.ch/schweiz/basel/story/Revolution-im-Fussball-dank-Schweizer-Technik--26553547.

Together with the MicroLab at the Biel/Bienne campus of BFH, the unit developed a sensor network and a local tracking system. The unit also works closely with the Swiss Association of Computer Science in Sport (SACSS).

Teaching

In addition to offering a course on measurement technologies and data analysis in sport on both the Masters with Specialization in Elite Sports and on Sports Coach Education courses, the Sports technology unit provides materials on fundamental principles and supervises doctoral theses.
