How good are you at skiing?
Fine-tune your individual carving score with digital help: The Connected Boot provides sensor-based feedback on the quality of movement during each turn and enables mobile analysis for optimised alpine skiing. Skiers are being sought for a study.
Measurement and assessment of movement quality play an important role in sport. However, existing systems often only provide vague information and are not geared towards specific sports, such as skiing. Salzburg Research, together with Atomic and the University of Salzburg, developed the Connected Boot in several research cycles.
With this intelligent ski boot, the quality of skiing is assessed using a variety of sensor technologies and machine learning. Individual skiing behaviour is measured, skiing-relevant parameters such as angle of lift or speed are calculated and skiing ability is assessed with the specially developed “Carving Score”.
Through individual feedback on the quality of movement during each ski turn and throughout the entire ski day, skiers gain better insight into their own performance. They can fine-tune their technique and thus improve the skiing experience.

Are you planning a day of skiing and would like to know whether your ski turn is carved or rather slid? For the first time, amateur skiers will be able to try out the latest technologies developed with professionals in winter 2022/23. Here’s how it works: Rent a ski strap with integrated sensor technology free of charge and attach it to your own ski boot, install the app and hit the slopes.
After each run, you will receive an immediate evaluation of your carving turns on your mobile phone.
