Abstract

This paper describes a design of training-diary system intended for motor learning regarding daily outdoor activities including sports. As for motor skill, both monitoring and advising based on the key points which are hard to obtain, are significant factors for improving such motor skills. The points comprise the timing of advice and content. Therefore, we propose a system which automatically generates coaching materials based on real-time monitoring data. It aims to become helpful in finding out such points. During training, the server provides learners and the coaches with an annotation on timeline messages of a mobile-device application by adjustable biomechanical/physiological threshold parameters while receiving the data via the mobile device with wireless sensors. After training, s/he can reflect the reconstructed annotations as diary for next training. Thus, the learners can discuss the key points with the coaches through a trial and error process concerning the threshold adjustment.
