The Intelligent Coaching Space: A Demonstration

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 10498)


Here we demonstrate our Intelligent Coaching Space, an immersive virtual environment in which users learn a motor action (e.g. a squat) under the supervision of a virtual coach. We detail how we assess the ability of the coachee in executing the motor action, how the intelligent coaching space and its features are realized and how the virtual coach leads the coachee through a coaching session.
