JOHAN Sports is a start-up company that offers precise motion tracking and analysis for sport teams. They are a technical sponsor for ESA Couture in Orbit with students from ESMOD fashion university in Paris, France, using the technology in their concepts for fashion of the future.
Accuracy is key – common running apps on a smartphone will record general tracking information but the JOHAN Sports system records 100 times a second. For ultimate accuracy the JOHAN sports pod has a satellite receiver enhanced with EGNOS technology coupled with an accelerometer and a gyroscope.
The data the small pods generate allow trainers such as physiotherapists, physiologists, physical trainers and coaches to create a perfect training schedule and managers to work out exactly when to substitute a player or when a player is in perfect shape for a match.
