Abstract

A new novel Ubiquitous Workout/Health/Music (UWHM) system, is proposed to improve the workout experience and performance via the music with matched tempo. This UWHM system includes the smartphone App and the UWHM cloud that can learn and predict the user workout behavior. UWHM system is able to capture the user workout behavior and identify the music with matched tempo to play at the right time. The learning algorithm is based on the user workout information and user feedback information to construct the user workout behavior profile. When the GPS location data is not available, we could predict the user running speed and total distance information based on the user past workout profile and feedback information. Then, the music with the matched tempo is identified and pushed to the user’s smartphone. Based on the preliminary data from 200 SHU undergraduate students in eight week experiment, we found that the UWHM system could significantly improve the workout time and performance.
