Smart Shoe

Smart Kicking shoe

This is a shoe designed as a training aid for football kickers that will allow players to practice kickoffs and field goals off the field (i.e. kicking into a net). The shoe is instrumented with a unique set of sensors, including pressure sensors and an RFID reader, that will provide instant feedback to the player. With an additional shoe-tracking system, we hope to predict the path of each kick and display the results to the player (similar to what is found in virtual driving ranges).
