Our task was to create an app that can provide basketball players and their coaches with real-time statistics about drills and workouts, then store it and help them to analyze this data properly.
We decided to assure real-time work of the application by using specific wrist and net sensors based on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology. The wrist sensor is installed on the player hand for detecting attempts, and the net sensor is installed on the basket for detecting makes. We also wanted to make a specific interface that can display and store real-time stats from both wrist and net sensors. Coaches can get instant access to this data using their smartphones or tablets.

We managed to implement Bluetooth Low Energy technology to furnish rapid and correct real-time gathering all the data about basketballers’ workouts and drills. The data from both wrist and net sensors are organized and displayed in the one clear and user-friendly interface. Using BLE-sensors also gives coaches and other players an opportunity to track the particular spots on the court, where players have made their attempts, view shooting percentages, points, and court time for each player separately and remotely.
