Avoid Olympic-Sized Sports Injury

Hi everyone ,, it has been long time that I have updated this blog, but here we go!!
THank you Leslie for 2nd part assigment explanation, it was very clear to me!!
Here I have little article regarding sports injury, I was watching winter olympics and I saw so many participant who fall down and was injured. It was mostly due to the poor weather condition and they lost their goal. What an unexpected and terrible situation!!! But i thought maybe I can make connection with those issues with IOT. What if ski mountain talks to actual equipment of ski?????!?!?!?! and detacts weather condition and warns skier???!?!?!?!?!?
imagination is broadly open!!!

"More than 143,000 injuries related to snowboarding were treated, at a cost of $4.1 billion in 2004. That year, more than 51,000 medically treated injuries related to ice hockey occurred, costing $977 million. Nearly 50,000 injuries related to ice-skating also occurred. Costs for this exceeded $1.3 billion," Tonino said.

    jas - ya you are definitely on the right track... just dont jump to IOT right away. first, do some signal mapping of the issue you are looking at, and then see where it goes.
