Researchers at the Pittsburgh campus of Disney Research are using computer vision to analyze the patterns of field hockey players, in hopes of creating a new way for coachers and commentators to make sense of game data in real time. Furthermore, this technology can be used not only in field hockey, but any other kind of team sport with continuous play.

With a focus on player roles, the research zeroes in on the tactics, strategy, and style for players and their teams. Eight cameras recording high-definition video are used to record matches and data from these is analyzed against other matches. The compiled information can give insight into strengths and weaknesses of teams and solid strategies for how to better face their opponents.
