Abstract:Within this research digital sports training exercises have been created for volleyball players. The exercises that have been created are aimed at supporting volleyball players from different levels in training their skills. During this research, a LED floor was used to create new and challenging exercises for volleyball players. First, the domain of digital sports training exercises was investigated. Both the commercial systems as the academic research in this domain were explored. Secondly, the information gathered from the related work was used to perform interviews with multiple volleyball trainers and players of different levels. From these interviews, it became clear which exercises that use a LED floor would really be an improvement for players to use during a training. These exercises were made into Lo-Fi prototypes, which were then tested and shown to a professional volleyball trainer. The prototypes that came out best were further developed into exercises for the LED floor. The design of these exercises was done in cooperation with a professional trainer. Finally, a user test and an expert review were done. These showed that the created exercises are capable of training a player’s skills. The use of the LED floor was seen as innovative and can lead to further developments in volleyball and other sports.
