Technis combines artificial intelligence with sophisticated sensor technology to offer an interactive tennis surface that detects, identifies and predicts a range of events during a tennis match.
Technis' intelligent flooring combines advanced sensor technology with artificial intelligence to offer users an unprecedented experience on the tennis court. The interactive surface consists of modular mats which can be placed anywhere on the court to augment players' experience and generate information while they play. The fully tactile surface can sense everything that happens during a match and can be integrated into synthetic and resin courts. The Technis software recognizes the events happening on the surface and sends the data to mobile and web applications to allow users to monitor their activity in real time. The data is displayed on a screen positioned on the edge of the court and can be used by umpires when making decisions about shots being in or out.
The Technis Pad records a range of events during a match. It can detect the players' position on the court and where the ball bounces. It can be used as a smart target in training and it provides coaches with data that allows them to evaluate the player's tennis level, identify any areas that need improvement, and get a clear picture of the player's progress over time.
Players can use the surface to make the game more fun, discover new game formats, and find other players with a similar skill level in their area. The information collected during a match is used to determine the players’ ranking and allows them to find partners with a similar level and track their climb in the rankings. The interactive court also allows players to set their own challenges. They can, for instance, define the exact point on the court to practice aiming their service and see the results in real time during practice.
Technis is a Swiss-based company dedicated to revolutionizing the way people interact with tennis by developing innovative digital environments that offer players data, train their skills and challenge them to improve their game level.
