A project team of S.P.O.T.T. developed custom computer vision software to detect the court, the tennis balls struck by the player, and the bounce location of a player’s shots. S.P.O.T.T. provides valuable data such as the success/failure rate of returning the ball, how the players handle different shots, the weakness of the players, etc. Data collected are passed to the user using the Bluetooth communication protocol through several built-in commands. A hardware platform was designed to allow real-time video capture, processing, and communication. The project was successfully developed and delivered to the client (Strictly Business Computer Systems, Inc.) to be integrated with ball machines.
