Athlete 360: Leveraging HPCC Systems for Maximizing Player Performance
The field of sport science is still relatively young and is rapidly evolving. This state of growth is important because the more data that can be collected, the better the understanding of what an athlete does and how their body responds. Within collegiate athletics, and sports in general, there is a struggle to be able to interpret data from different streams together in a single report.
In this talk, learn how the NC State University Strength and Conditioning Coach team is addressing this challenge by using HPCC Systems for collecting and analyzing all the various data streams for creating a 360° view of an athlete’s wellbeing to ensure they are performing at their highest potential.
