Abstract

A device (10) that measures the distance traveled, speed, and height jumped of a person while running or walking. Accelerometers and rotational sensors are placed in the sole of one shoe along with an electronic circuit that performs mathematical calculations to determine the distance and height of each step. A
radio frequency transmitter (12) sends the distance and height information to a wristwatch or other central receiving unit. A radio frequency receiver (14) in the wristwatch or other unit is coupled to a microprocessor that calculates an output speed based upon step-distance and elapsed time, and the distance traveled of the runner from the sum of all previous step distances. The output of the microprocessor is coupled to a display (18) that shows the distance traveled, speed, or height jumped of the runner or walker.
