To produce a bespoke tool for Hammer performance analysis for use in the indoor training area at the Loughborough HiPAC.
Thor is a video-based performance analysis tool that tracks the hammer in 3-dimensions during the wind-up phase and launch of the hammer. This provides rotation, angle, radius and speed profiles of the wind-up phase and the launch parameters. The system also predicts the distance thrown, which is especially useful in the indoor environment.
