Player Tracking Technology Data Collection Essentials
In this video, we'll discuss athlete load monitoring and specifically, player tracking technologies. Discussing our publication in Sports Performance & Science Reports (Torres-Ronda et al., 2022), we explore the basics of collecting external load data with these technologies. We also discuss considerations for sports scientists in order to collect accurate and clean data, including understanding system data processing settings and using a consistent approach to session and drill naming and categorising.
This video also includes an overview of the different types of tracking systems; namely Global Positioning Systems (GPS), Inertial Measurement Units (IMU), Local Positioning Systems (LPS), and Optical Tracking (OT).
