ANDY is a research team focusing on state-of-the-art systems and analysis models for
Motion Analysis and Movement Evaluation
Sport Situation Assessment
Developing new ways of analysing, modelling and visualising data of complex dynamic systems, related to human
We are offering supervision for all projects within our scope, including seminar, internship, bachelor thesis,
and master thesis projects. You are encouraged to either choose a project from our “current research topics
page” or propose an own idea.

Current Research Topics
Martial Arts Technique Analysis System
(Video image analysis)
Detection of defined technique
Performance Indicators based on previous studies
Web application for semi-automatic analysis of a specific martial arts technique recorded by a 2D
Video files with defined characteristics of the technique execution can be uploaded. The software
automatically recognizes and tracks the motion based on a (at least) 12 segment model of the human body.
The technique is divided into functional phases and specific data -based on state-of-the-art research-
is collected at the motion-nodes between the phases.
4-Camera Sport Situation Assessment
Body segment detection and tracking from 4 perspectives
Number of kicks
Number of punches
Images of 4 synchronised cameras with different angles of defined positions should be
Identify the pose estimations of 2 athletes
Thereon based, detect their body segments
Provide simple movement evaluations (e.g. number of punches and kicks)
Optional: Advanced movement evaluations
Information about target contacts of each punch or kick
Horizontal movement trajectories of each athlete
3D trajectories of the body segments of each athlete
Boxing Performance Diagnostics
Sport-specific laboratory endurance performance diagnostic for boxing
Caution: Project may be (Covid-related) delayed System for data analysis and visualisation.
Software application to assist evaluation of a novel type of performance diagnostic for martial arts
using a smart boxing glove technology, lactate analysis, heartrate and maybe spiroergometric data. Data
must be recorded/transmitted/transferred, analysed and appropriately displayed.
