In addition to its financial support of Team USA, BMW will also look to apply its engineering expertise to advance the training and performance goals of the Olympic and Paralympic athletes of Team USA. BMW's engineers are currently working with USA Track & Field to measure athlete velocity using advanced, stereo-vision technologies, not unlike those currently being tested in BMW vehicles to improve automotive safety. With these vision systems, BMW hopes to track and analyze motion through the mechanical phases of a sport or event. BMW hopes to be able to deliver continuous, objective and immediate feedback on athlete performance that can be used by coaches and sports scientists to maximize the efficacy of training sessions.
