Embedded World, Nuremberg, Germany—February 24, 2015—IAR Systems® today announces that adidas AG Germany has selected IAR Systems’ world-leading tools for development of their product adidas miCoach Elite Team System: an advanced system for monitoring personal physiological data in real time. For several years, adidas has been using the development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench® for ARM® in different development projects because of its ease of use and high performance.

Products for the Internet of Things and wearables focusing on health are continuously growing in use and popularity. A large trend among these smart products is applications for monitoring personal physiology. The adidas miCoach Elite Team System is the first system of its kind that uses personal physiological data in real time, sending it straight to a coach's tablet on the side-line. The system not only provides real-time insights during training, but tracks total training impact, collects and manages data and is highly portable. The state of the art system measures everything from power, speed and distance to heart rate, acceleration and field position, allowing key insights into player performance and work rate, helping teams achieve and maintain peak physical performance. During the last years, the system has been rolled to several adidas football clubs and federations around the world.
