Welcome to the Cambridge University homepage for the SESAME (SEnsing in Sport And Managed Exercise) research project. SESAME is an EPSRC funded project (EP/D076943), which will run for 4 years from July 2006. It is funded as part of the WINES-II managed call.

The SESAME consortium is a multidisciplinary group formed to investigate the use of wireless sensor-based systems with offline and real-time processing and feedback in enhancing the performance of elite athletes and young athletes who have been identified as having world class potential.

The overall goals of the project lie in enhancing performance, improving coach education, and advancing sports science using a range of both hardware and software technologies to achieve this. In so doing, we will build on the extensive experience that exists both within and outside the consortium in the application of sensor systems to human and animal monitoring, and we will seek to advance that knowledge both in terms of outcomes that are specific to sports and in terms of computer science fundamentals.

Despite a specific focus on track and field athletics, which provides a challenging but achievable demonstration domain and is timely in view of the national importance of the 2012 Olympics, the SESAME technical approach and its solutions will be deliberately generic, to enable their subsequent application to a wider range of training and health care scenarios including, for example, the rehabilitation of patients following surgery, stroke or injury, and support for people with physical disabilities.

The project has six major partners:

UCL Computer Science Stephen Hailes
Cambridge University Computer Laboratory Andy Hopper, George Coulouris
Royal Veterinary College Alan Wilson
UWIC David Kerwin
Cambridge University Engineering Dept Joan Lasenby
UCL CHIME Dipak Kalra
