It was my pleasure to be an IoT Coach to help teams through the Hackathon sprints (agile) as they build from an idea to a proof of concept demonstration. In my role, I shall provide product management and product development expertise.

Meet the team

Here is a YouTube video on Team V1

The Problem

High school athletes participating in these 9 sports at participating schools sustained 4350 injuries during the 2005–2006 school year, which corresponds to an estimated 1,442,533 injuries nationally.

The Solution

Use analytics to predict when an injury may occur. This is accomplished by users authorizing the V1 platform to access their biometric data collected by devices such as a FitBit.

The Results

With the use of the Microsoft Azure platform, we were able to show how various athletes were at risk of injury.
