Space-Time Analysis of Movements in Basketball using Sensor Data


Global Positioning Systems (GPS) are nowadays intensively used in Sport Science as they permit to capture the space-time trajectories of players, with the aim to infer useful information to coaches in addition to traditional statistics. In our application to basketball, we used Cluster Analysis in order to split the match in a number of separate time-periods, each identifying homogeneous spatial relations among players in the court. Results allowed us to identify differences in spacing among players, distinguish defensive or offensive actions, analyze transition probabilities from a certain group to another one.
