Building on the experience acquired during Barcelona 2003 World Swimming Championships (STT InThePool 1.0 system) and Barcelona 2013 FINA World Swimming Championship, STT has developed InThePool 2.0, a powerful tool for swimming analysis based on camera tracking and machine vision algorithms.
A standard InThePool 2.0 configuration comprises a set of 6-12 1MP@100FPS color cameras working simultaneously, each one targeting a section of the swimming pool. An optimized data pipeline working on a Giga Ethernet network allows for fast viewing and processing. The entire system is managed in a single computer. The software then allows for a real-time, automatic analysis of parameters like stroke frequency & amplitude, accurate pass times and more. The user can compare data resulting from different swimmers, and there is also a ‘virtual camera’: all camera view can be integrated seamlessly to provide individual tracking views.
