Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


This paper discusses the development of a portable wireless vibration-monitoring device designed to measure collision impact on athletes in the field. The device has the capability to measure vibration in real time. Data is stored in the internal memory and can be downloaded after several measurements. The device utilises data from a 3-axis accelerometer that can be accessed real time as well as stored on a Flash memory for the period of 8 minutes. The device is small enough to operate with a coin cell battery and communicate wirelessly with the PC via a RF dongle. The retrieved raw data was analysed using National Instrument’s Lab VIEW.
