Full Time

Do you want to be a part of a growing start-up, involved in the welfare of horses in the equine industry, where computer science and sports science merge together? Do you want to work in an industry-defining enterprise that will change the face of the subjective equine industry?

What We Do

TrojanTrack will provide biomechanical analysis to the trainers of thoroughbred racehorses, analysing their movement patterns for any imbalances or an early sign of injury. We will do this using Deep Neural Network technology and high-speed video data, assessing the joint angles, velocities and accelerations of 52 anatomical positions on the horse. This is the future of equine biomechanical analysis, as all competitors are currently using wearables which are time-consuming, expensive and not feasible for busy stables. We plan on developing and perfecting the technology in Ireland, where we are world-renowned for our horsemanship, and exporting to markets such as the UK, USA and Australia, where their racehorse population is exponentially larger.
