WIMI Hologram’s AI and Autostereoscopy Welcomes Pivotal Moment After Using New AI Technology and 3D Tracking at Tokyo Olympics
The Tokyo Olympics ended on August 8. There were not only athletes from various countries vying to compete for the gold medals, but also high-tech devices such as wearable technology and artificial intelligence technology, playing a vital role in the process.
3D athlete tracking technology has been reported to appear in games for the first time. It can provide data on athlete’s speed, body angle, acceleration, stride length, etc. in seconds, extracting the 3D shape of athletes. It’s impossible to capture with the naked eye in the past.
The technology uses artificial intelligence to analyze videos of athletes. This is not only a good record of athlete training, but also a whole new way of broadcasting: analyzing, interpreting and reviewing the highlights of the match in reading, which offers the Olympic public a great experience.
3D athlete tracking technology combines computer vision technology and AI deep learning algorithms, and generates a 3D grid without using special sensors or devices only with multiple standard cameras. Coaches and coaches can brainstorm new training methods by extracting real-time biomechanical data to analyze athlete performance. The system uses AI to analyze the biomechanics of athlete movement and calculate the location of key joints in the body.
In addition, thanks to the recorded historical data of the athletes, the system can trace the dynamic situation of the training. Coaches are easy to organize and provide scientific training strategies to effectively improve training efficiency based on accurate analysis of sports postures and aggregation of sports data.
Not only athletics, rock climbing, swimming, gymnastics and horseback riding have all applied new or completely improved stopwatches this year. According to NHK, the International Gymnastics Federation has introduced an AI scoring support system developed by Japanese Fujitsu.
The system tracks the player’s movements by projecting infrared rays on the player and converts the scene into a 3D image in real time. According to the images, the AI can analyze body rotation and twist and other subtle movements, and combine past game data to judge skill completion according to the scoring rules.
The AI called Xiaobing, used to score at Olympic ski venues this year, is said to be able to perform a consistent and comprehensive assessment as human professional referees. The system overcomes issues such as high light intensity or complex backgrounds, extremely short time for athletes to stay aloft, and competition venue restrictions. It can set athletes as the target and realize target detection, tracking and recognition based on target movement sequence prediction, and provide real-time feedback and assistance to correct athlete movement.
It should be mentioned that as the market continues to grow, sports brands are also placing more value on technological input, competing to introduce new clothing and equipment to improve athlete performance.
As a sportswear supplier for the Olympic teams, Anta Sports has produced 3D printed shoes for the boxing team, claiming that these shoes can better fit humans and protect the feet. In addition, the tights have been personalized in 3D with reference to the morphology of the gymnasts. To sum up, AI, at the heart of the new round of technological revolution, will benefit more aspects in future society.
3D vision technology shows the prospect of great popularization, and there will be more room for innovation in the future. With the constant upgrading of new algorithms, the deep computing makes the information processing more efficient and the 3D effects more realistic and perfect.
In 2019, 5G was used commercially and started its way into the entertainment industry. Besides sporting events, e-sports, movies, variety shows, event festivals, there are many new trends that can also enjoy the advantages of high quality pictures and smooth sound.
What kind of experience will the increasingly popular 5G and accelerated application of AI bring? WIMI Hologram (WIMI), which occupies a leading position in the industry, continuously optimizes the realistic experience that already exists, meanwhile, it also strives to create stage devices.
After years of deployment, WIMI has grown into a leading company in the AI basic data services industry. Created in 2015, WIMI is listed on the stock exchange.
Several core technologies, such as computer vision and light field technology, have been fully applied to a variety of innovative scenarios such as human-machine interaction, smart driving and smart cities.
WIMI focus on holographic cloud services, mainly automotive AR holographic HUD (head-up display), 3D holographic pulse LiDAR (laser radar), head-mounted light field holographic equipment, semiconductor holographic, holographic software, holographic car navigation and other professional fields, covering not only high-tech industry, but advertising, entertainment and many other industries. It is a solution provider on integrated holographic technology.
With the development of technologies such as big data, cloud computing and the Internet of Things, the industrialization of related technologies in the field of AI has started and has grown rapidly.
