The Speckled Golfer

Abstract

This paper describes the application of the first fully wireless network of inertial sensors for full-body 3-D motion capture -- the Orient-2 system, to real-time on-body analysis of the golf swing. The golfer-club system is modelled as a double pendulum. The factors which affect the efficiency of the golf swing are outlined, such as the length of the back swing, the wrist-cock angle, swing plane and club-head speed and methods are described for monitoring them using a wireless network of Orient-2 specks. The implementation of the Speckled Golfer System is described and two motion rules are illustrated for executing efficient golf swings.
