My Final Major Project was BOX. - a boxing tracking app. The initial purpose was to allow beginner boxers to improve their boxing ability, without the need of a coach, and for coaches to get accurate data insights to take their coaching to the next level. Through the combination of physical sensors and a mobile app, BOX. aimed to provide a custom experience, depending on the individual user's needs.
Beginners would get their data automatically interpreted in the form of easy to follow coaching points, allowing them to work on their technique at any time or any place - all they needed was the sensors, the app and space to train in.
Coaches, on the other hand, would strap the sensors to boxers that they work with and record data during their ongoing training sessions. The sensors would record a wide variety of data points, whilst the app would display it in appropriate charts and graphs, with the ability to export the data for further analysis. Coaches would get access to data impossible to access otherwise, giving them an advantage over other coaches and the providing an opportunity for their boxers be a step ahead of their opponents.
