IIT Madras and IIS to develop boxing analytics software to boost India’s medal tally at Olympics

Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras along with the Inspire Institute of Sports (IIS) in Bellary, Karnataka are developing a cost-effective boxing analytics platform to increase India’s boxing medal tally at the Games 2024 Olympics.

An analytics platform called ‘Smartboxer’, developed as a multi-version software by the Center of Excellence for Sports Science and Analytics at IIT Madras, will provide an above-average competitive edge to Indian athletes. It will provide feedback and performance evaluations using Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled sensors and video cameras.

‘Smartboxer’ will be deployed to analyze the performance of boxers at Inspire Institute of Sport (IIS). Based on IIS feedback, changes will be incorporated into the “Smartboxer” analytics platform. This will allow the software to be used effectively to help trainers and boxers. This will help solve sports problems and design better sports equipment.

To achieve the ambitious goal of increasing the medals in the 2024 Olympics, the Government of India has selected a few key sports to focus its efforts on. This includes archery, boxing, shooting, badminton, wrestling, hockey, weightlifting, cycling and athletics.

IIT Madras researchers along with IIS plan to apply for a patent for the ‘Smartboxer’ after validation by IIS.
