Abstract: Objects tracking and automated action analysis in videos has been widely researched and applied in military and security surveillance. However, sports and other fields, which are also in the need of automation technology, have not been well supported. An example is American Football, where coaches have to spend countless hours manually analyzing previous matches and practice videos of their opponents and themselves, trying to figure out the pattern of the team’s play, also their strength and weakness. Researchers at Advanced Digital Science Center (ADSC) have proposed new methods to automatically extract valuable information from an American Football video. The information is an important key required in multi-level analysis such as automatic statistic generation and strategy inference. However, the program used to generate result is on a desktop station, which is very inconvenient for users – American Football coaches and players. Therefore, a mobile-platform application that could apply the newly invented technology appeared as a crucial need. With the above motivation in mind, this project is aimed to develop a well-functioned application with a user-friendly interaction. There are two main parts to this project. The first is to design and maintain the database that store all results generated from the desktop station. This part was done using MySQL as database language and PHPMYADMIN to create local host. The second is to develop an IPAD application that can retrieve the results and at the same time allow user to make any adjustment if needed. This report will hereby present a detailed description of the application features along with the implementation to demonstrate its usability. Finally, some future suggestions will be discuss to bring the product to the commercial stage.
