Decision-making in team sports

Knowing where an athlete looks before carrying out an action is valuable information that can improve both technique for the individual and results for the whole team. In team sports, eye movements are used to study implicit search strategies of athletes and to provide valuable insights in tactical decision-making in offensive and defensive situations.

Talent scouting and professional assessment

Talent scouting and professional assessment

Part of the expertise of high performance athletes is that they have acquired specific visual strategies which help them to complete routine tasks like hitting a ball, jumping or performing other motor actions. Their experience also helps them to use visual cues in order to anticipate patterns further in advance. Measuring these implicit visual skills can be a valuable indicator when scouting young talents and when assessing performance of professional athletes.

Modern, wearable eye tracking is so light-weight and non-intrusive that it has become a routine part of my work. So now it is an inseparable tool in both the peak performance training we conduct and for talent scouting.

By placing the athlete in realistic, 360° immersive environments sports researchers are well-placed to assess how quickly - and tactically aware - the participant reacts to scenarios relevant to their chosen sport. VR headsets allow the sports researcher to easily replace and alter training scenarios and to compare with the result of teammates.
