Movements and positioning are crucial issues in sports. Precise measurements using various instruments will help boost the performance of an athlete or team.

Players’ positions within their team and their surrounding environment, along with their movements, are key data for analyzing and improving their performance. Several pieces of equipment are involved in taking precise measurements: cameras, sensors, drones and algorithms. The information collected can also be used to give spectators a better understanding of critical points in a game: they can watch a play from several angles or view a specific athlete’s performance data.
