Player Tracking in Badminton

In an initial study we’ve assessed the accuracy of the Kinect in player tracking for sports applications. On a mock Badminton court a player’s centre of mass (COM) position was tracked to within 190 mm at distances to the Kinect of less than 6 m and within 280 mm at distances over 6 m. We are interested in refining the algorithm to calculate player COM position more accurately and also possible implementations of this technique in real sporting applications. If you want more information with regards to this study, we have written it into a report which can be downloaded here:  Badminton Tracking report
