Nowadays, there are several issues or accident happened to the athletes in Malaysia and also around the world during tournament or training. Plus, lack of awareness during match or game could also could become one of the issues that could lead to the injuries also losing the match or competition. Those factors could be determined by the lack of technology to monitor and measure the athlete's fitness and their reflexes towards their surroundings. Therefore, the idea of proposing a monitoring device that could be used by the trainer or coach to monitor their athletes were developed. This project was used to monitor the athlete’s fitness status and test their reaction time by using wireless communication based on embedded technology. This project was designed to record and monitor data set of player heart rate, body temperature while checking their reaction time to stimulation and transmit it wirelessly by using compact embedded sensor and microprocessor as the main device. Multiple sensors were used to monitor the heart rate, current body temperature and athlete’s reaction time. The device will be included with Arduino as a main microprocessor unit and medium for data transferring and receiving before it being transmitted to the monitoring platform and also several node microcontroller unit for the training light system. The results obtained from the first and second prototype shows that readings from three different types of sport during data collection were different. The data from the prototype were also influenced by the play pattern of the sport itself which require a different athlete performance. As for the conclusion, the result data were illustrated on graph for all the parameters. Therefore, it is required to use a better high specification sensor and monitoring platform as a future improvements.
