Abstract

This paper presents a project of wearable motion capture system for motion analysis in swimming. Two versions of this system have already been designed, one with a wired structure, based on a microcontroller and an inertial measurement unit (IMU), and the other with a distributed architecture, based on a wireless communication and another IMU. This system has been initially designed to target tri-athletes population, but this study only presents the considerations concerning the swimming application.
