Abstract

In this study, we define a method that allows the real-time presentation of a sportsman’s physical status to an audience as the AwareSports concept. In particular, we focus on cycling to illustrate the AwareSports concept and develop an AwareCycle system to show the sportsman’s status on the wheel, which has not been utilized previously as a display area for presenting the sportsman’s status in real-time to the audience. We also implement an iPhone software application that is connected to the wheel component in order to monitor and display the sportsman’s heart rate.
