The use of ubiquitous computing for sport performance monitoring was demonstrated in recent work. In this paper, a custom-designed radio-based localisation system and its applicability for tracking a running athlete were presented. The system uses 2.4GHz radio with a Time-of-Arrival (ToA)-based localisation protocol to locate a running athlete on an indoor running track. Through a real-time analysis on the raw localisation data, the location results could be used to support other useful coaching support applications, such as automatic video tracking. The system was experimented against goldstandard technologies. The results show that the presented system achieves a positional accuracy within 21.959cm for tracking running athletes. © (2010) by International Academy, Research, and Industry Association (IARIA).
