CO-CREATING INNOVATION in sports and play
One of the main benefits of a FieldLab for its stakeholders is the provision of quantitative and qualitative data on user experiences with innovation relating to sport, exercise and play in a public space. These data are generated by the use of fixed and mobile monitoring systems that capture information on the users’ movement within the space, and interaction with the objects and equipment (products) within it.
In order to facilitate this unique system for monitoring, data collection and analysis the FieldLabs in the participating cities have been equipped with ducting, cabling, small wireless sensors and special high-definition pan-tilt-zoom cameras that can track user movement while they are undertaking activity. Within the project also combinations of mobile devices have been tested and special software has been developed
