Abstract

This paper proposes a method for quantitatively evaluating sprinting motions using the videos of runners. Specifically, this paper explores the coordination between physical motions, which has been recognized as very important in sprinting. After detecting and normalizing the joint coordinates from sprinting videos, the cross-correlations of two windowed time-series data are calculated using the windowing cross-correlation function, and the coordination between the motions of the two joints is quantified. Experiments that use 20 subjects are conducted. As a result of classifying the cross-correlation obtained from the subjects’ data into two clusters using k-means clustering, conditions in which the obtained cluster includes a high percentage of inexperienced sprinters are found. To verify whether the motions corresponding to these conditions are valid as the evaluation criterion of sprinting, Spearman’s rank correlation coefficients between cross-correlations and 30-m time records are calculated. The results show a weak correlation with respect to the coordination between the elbow and knee motions. Therefore, it can be said that the cross-correlation corresponding to the coordination can be used as a quantitative criterion in sprinting.
