Presentation from Daniel Minzari, Specialist Engineer at IPU:
Sports technology – buzzwords and opportunities!
Technology is paramount for sports, training, injury prevention, rehabilitation etc. The passion to improve performance among athletes feed the desire to acquire and implement the best equipment and technologies. Hence the sports technology market is a key driver for continued innovation and development of new technology.
However, sports technology is also known as magnet for fancy buzzwords such as nano, graphene, 3D printing, artificial intelligence, virtual reality etc. As a research based consultancy based at the Technical University of Denmark, IPU is in close contact with a range of polytechnic research areas. This presentation will describe some of the technologies behind the fancy buzzwords, and describe the opportunities and challenges behind them.
