5G Connected Wearables for Sports – A project by L.I.F.E. , Vodafone and Politecnico di Milano
We are pleased to have collaborated with Vodafone and the Politecnico di Milano to monitor athletes on the run.
On May 19th 2019, athletes tested our Performer Runner prototype during the 10K PolimiRun race in Milan, Italy. Thanks to Vodafone’s 5G network, our sensor-embedded suits gave athletes and their coaches a closer look at performance in real time.
With our sensor-embedded garments and performance-enhancing algorithms, the testers were able to monitor their:
- Heart rate
- Breathing rate
During different activities.
The device’s logger module, located between the shoulder blades, was connected to Vodafone’s 5G infrastructure.
This guaranteed that the physiological data being generated during the event, was transmitted securely and in real-time to a personal dashboard.
We designed these technologies to be in close communication with our bodies, with the freedom to monitor our health in motion and hands-free.
