Author(s): Akhil P Nair, PS Lavanya Nair, Govind Mohan, Shalini Nair J and Jinu Baby
Sportsmen are trying to improve their game in every way possible, but the equipments and technologies to improve their game are mostly restricted to better their physical attributes and not on their game play. Advanced guidance and equipments are not available for thousands of players in the country. Hence this, paper introduces an electronics glove to assist players in improving their gameplay from anywhere and everywhere. These gloves are pre-calibrated using Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) for efficient hand movements. Yaw, pitch and roll angles of wrist actions are calculated by gyroscope and accelerometer, present on IMU. A player has to move his/her wrist in a particular way to get the maximum output from a shot. These movements can be compared with the pre-stored values of an expert from the field. This comparison helps the amateur player to understand his/her mistake and rectify it.
