Abstract: This is a contemporary world and every field was automated by the support of electronic devices, these are excessive precise and constant to bring out the effort successfully. The present investigator made an attempt to create an electronic device to assess the flying sprint (Maintenance of maximum speed) performance of athletes in sprinting event. Presently flying sprint timings are not assessing in most of sprint event like district, divisional and state level programs due to lack of appropriate equipment. The prevailing influence of flying sprint performance is high on the result of every sprinting event. The investigator has designed an electronic device to find out accurate flying sprint performance of sprinters using the following core parts1.Microphone 2.Infrared Transmitters, 3.Infrared Receivers 4.Interfacing Unit and Computer. To attain scientific authenticity of the gadget 120 subjects were chosen from Hindusthan College of Engineering and Technology, Coimbatore and the appropriate data were collected using the newly invented equipment while the subjects were running in the 100m race. The collected data were treated with appropriate statistical techniques and obtained Reliability, Validity and objectivity of the device.
