The current state of bowling performance analysis is focused on the events happening after the ball leaves the hand of the bowler. Typically, the current systems emphasize on the movements of the ball. In this study a different approach was taken, and the measurement system is centered on the movements of the bowler. The feasibility of methods applying inertial measurement systems was evaluated, and the results indicate that adequate performance can be achieved with the low-cost inertial measurement units.
