Project Details


The main aim of the project is to create a novel method for automated game analysis, which offers new insights in the structure of sport games. The first type of sport investigated will be beach volleyball which offers a not too complex structure(4 players, 1 ball and a rather small field) and is similar to several other types of sport. Technical aims: * Tracking of players: All four players should be tracked most of the time. The most important point is not to loose a player or to confuse him with another because this would spoil the whole subsequent analysis. Tracking the players, should also record their positions on the field. * Tracking of the ball: For understanding the structure of the game it is important to keep track of the ball (though the exact trajectory is not of relevance). * Event Recognition: Based on the video analysis events such as attack, defence etc. should be recognized automatically. All this functionality need to be offered in a software tool that can be used by sports scientists.
