In Chinese universities, students need to participate in the middle-distance-race. Normally, female students are required to participate in the race of 800 meters, while male students are required to participate in the race of 1000 meters. However, it is difficult for teachers to grasp the real time information of students during the race. And there is a lack of timely communications between the teachers and students. Focusing on this issue, this study, with the use of POLAR heart rate sensor and other modern information technologies, expands the original function of the sensor to achieve a concurrent operation of detecting heart rates and automatically measuring the movement speed. The researchers have successfully designed a micro system to monitor the process of middle-distance race. Moreover, the study also engages in a preliminary experiment verification so as to provide object and effective reference and basis for the middle-distance race physical education teaching in universities.
