After the introduction of wireless instrumented klapskates in long-track speed skating, we started on the development of a fixed instrumented short-track skate. This development is a close collaboration between the TU Delft, de Haagse Hogeschool and the Dutch National Short-track team. Several student groups worked on the design of the pillars. The manufacturing of the pillars was done by the world champion short-track skater Sjinkie Knegt in his workshop at home. The electronics and sensors were designed and manufactured at the TU Delft.
Yesterday the first on ice measurements were performed and that got us very excited for the continuation of this project!
