The Breakthrough

Griffith University's SABEL Labs has created SABEL Sense, which easily outperforms GPS in tracking running speeds and distances through accelerometers. The technology was especially made for athletes to provide them with accurate data on their performance and to avoid over-training. Project Manager Dr. Jono Neville shares that they have found a data processing technique that gathers the athlete's data to create an individualized model.

The Implications

There has always been a demand for such technology, and given that it's not dependent on external satellites like GPS, changes in speed and direction won't be an issue for SABEL Sense. The GPS alternative has been deemed as a game changer in the industries of sports and wearable technology, and sports organizations like the AFL have already picked it up.
