Abstract

This initial research is a case study that uses a multiview human body tracking method as a tool to measure hurdle clearance kinematic parameters. This study is conducted on a hurdler representing a high sport level, who is a participant in the European and World Championships and the Olympic Games. The video recordings were made under simulated starting conditions of a 110 m hurdle race. Kinematic parameters are estimated based on the analysis of images from a multicamera system. The images were recorded with a resolution of 1920x1080 and with a frequency of 100 Hz. The proposed method does not use any special clothes, markers or other estimation support techniques. The parameters of the hurdle clearance were compared with the parameters obtained from ground truth poses. Mean Absolute Error and Mean Relative Error were used as the quality criteria.
