GAMEGOLF PRO release date is June 21 2018!

For the 3rd product of the GAMEGOLF line, we have been working hard to provide all golfers around the globe with the best technology on the market to help them improve their game.

Combination of high quality sensors and low power microprocessors, our smart tags — to be screwed on the top of the clubs — are making sense out of each swing.

From a technical stand point, our challenges are numerous:

  • Embed powerful algorithms that one would usually run on the server side
  • Seamless experience: no button, no LED that would distract the player. No on/off switch, everything just has to be figured out from the inside.
  • Keep the system low power: the coin cell battery is not supposed to be changed often, and we took great care in making algorithms that will save precious microamps.
  • Secure connections and user privacy

Experiences

2016 - now

Game Golf - Embedded Firmware, Sensor Fusion, Motion Detection Algorithms, and Machine Learning Development for new product

Phase 1 (2016 - 2017): MEMS Sensor Fusion Firmware Development

Algorithms and firmware development to turn raw data from Inertial Measurement Unit into
real-time motion analysis, and implementation into an Cortex-M4 based embedded system

Phase 2 (2017 - 2018): GAMEGOLF PRO Production Firmware

  • Set up a consistent process to extract data from the board (NXP)
