Paper Abstract

We describe the use of high speed video to provide quantitative assessment of motion in athletic performance. Besides the normal requirement for accuracy, an essential feature is that the information be provided rapidly enough so that it my serve as valuable feedback in the learning process. The general considerations which must be addressed in the development of such a computer based system are discussed. These ideas are illustrated specifically through the description of a prototype system which has been designed for the javelin throw.
