Dunedin Stadium a perfect laboratory

09 Jun 2011

ARL managing director Ian Taylor wants to consolidate expertise in the sports analysis industry in New Zealand, and believes the Dunedin Stadium would make a "perfect laboratory" for students interested in research and design projects. Otago Polytechnic's applied research and design department had already collaborated with Animation Research Ltd on a $200,000 project for a commercial client recently, which was an "encouraging start", Polytechnic chief executive Phil Ker told members at a campus council meeting - the fledgling sports analysis industry provided a "great field of opportunities" for the tertiary institute.

There was a broad potential to involve different departments, such as the sports institute, and create Polytech courses around the developing technology, Mr Ker said. "It will enable us to become users [of the technology] and become more involved with developing the types of animation technology used for all sorts of training possibilities - live streaming of events, computer graphic interfaces, even engineering." Discussions are also being held with departments at the University of Otago to gauge interest in courses designed around sports animation and tracking technology.
