Agus Rusdiana, Iman Imanudin, Angga Muhamad Syahid, Ricky Wibowo


The purpose of this study was to develop a measuring device to measure maximal aerobic capacity by using digital bleep test with infrared sensor and motion analysis system software to obtain a more accurate, precise, and efficient assessment result in conducting the test. The method used in the study was R & D (Research and Development) method. This research was conducted in collaboration with a team of experts of various specific fields so that the development of this simple prototype could create a validated product before mass production is conducted. The result of this study will create a digital-based measuring instrument that has been valid through validity test. Conducting a study that develops a product could prevent error and human error during the test. Therefore, a more efficient process and a more accurate result can be obtained compared to manual testing.



Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk mengembangkan alat ukur Maximal aerobic capacity melalui  bleep test berbasis digital dengan menggunakan sensor infrared dan software motion analysis system supaya mendapatkan hasil penilaian yang lebih tepat, akurat dan efesiensi pengerjaan dalam melakukan tes. Metode penelitian yang digunakan oleh peneliti adalah metode R&D (research and Development), bekerjasama dengan tim pakar atau ahli dalam berbagai bidang tertentu supaya dalam pengembangan prototype sederhana ini yang dapat menciptakan suatu produk yang dapat divalidasi sebelum diproduksi secara massal. Hasil dari penelitian ini akan menciptakan suatu alat ukur berbasis digital yang sudah dilakukan uji validitasnya dengan hasil dinyatakan VALID. Dengan adanya penelitian yang mengembangkan suatu produk dapat menghindari kesalahan atau Human error dalam pengerjaan tes ,mendapatkan hasil yang akurat di bandingkan tes secara manual dan pengerjaan lebih efesien.
