Deep Skijump Pose

Top: Continuously estimated joint trajectories are synchronized with force measurements in an effort to train a deep learning based force prediction network. Bottom: Original joint detections over multiple camera views on the left, rectified poses on the right.

In a joint effort with the Institute of Applied Training Science in Leipzig (Institut für angewandte Trainingswissenschaften, IAT) we develop a training feedback system for improving the jump posture of professional ski jumpers. In this project, we research deep learning algorithms for a continuous athlete pose and ski pose estimation and for tracking the body gravity center of ski jumpers. We use this tracking information to infer kinematic and ballistic flight parameters and to approximate external force sensor measurements, allowing for immediate training feedback with a large set of performance relevant parameters.

This joint project was funded by the Federal Institute for Sports Science (Bundesinstitut für Sportwissenschaft, BISp) based on a resolution of the German Bundestag.
