The JUMP project intends to build and test a platform based on a smart force platform that, with the support of tracking cameras, is able to provide information on sporting performance and not only to viewers, users and stakeholders through applications and communication systems based on effective, ergonomic and usable user interfaces.


The main objective of the JUMP project is the development of a sensational platform capable of gathering data on subjects in action during sports performance and educational and therapeutic activities, integrating and processing collected data and providing them with visualization applications to enable them to effective and ergonomic use. Specific pilot tests in the above-mentioned areas will be predisposed to assess the technology and effectiveness of the display for the benefit of users.


Data collected, integrated and processed by the platform in real-time will be returned using applications designed specifically for different types of users and contexts. In particular, sports applications for athletes and professional and non-team coaches, educational context applications, entertainment channel applications, and applications to support rehabilitation programs.

Action Plan

JUMP creates and promotes a network of laboratories and researchers for the development of technological and innovative solutions for collecting, analyzing and displaying data in effective, ergonomic and usable user interfaces in the sports, rehabilitation and educational environment. RE: Lab, project coordinator and laboratory specializing in Human-Machine Interaction will handle the implementation of applications and content for displaying information and overall project management. INTERMECH, an inter-laboratory for Advanced Mechanics of the High Tech Network, will put in place its leading expertise on the power platforms for the creation of sensorized pavement, while Softech-ICT, an accredited laboratory with a leading role in research in the ICT sector, will provide her with experience in artificial vision by providing multi-tracking cameras for disambiguation. Democenter Foundation, Center for Innovation and Technology Transfer of Emilia-Romagna High Technology Network, will handle the communication and dissemination part of the project and its results. Finally, two companies will be involved in the test demonstration phase: Waterproofing, the leader in sports flooring and Play +, the leader in furniture, childcare facilities and in general designing children's space design.
