ZINFORMATICA has designed an electronic system to interface to a common table football, this solution is able to detect the goals, the time of ball possession, the score, the replays and is able to manage entire tournaments even remotely.
The system is equipped with three cameras, one above the center that frames the entire playing field and two side cameras that frame the two doors. The games are recorded by these three cameras and in case of goals you can watch in slow motion the last action.
The project revolves around the use of a PLC, an HMI display, different types of sensors (infrared, proximity, ultrasound), three industrial cameras and the possibility of using tablets.
The system, through the HMI display, but also through large format monitors, allows you to show the score during the game, replays of actions, information on the teams, the championship and the ranking.
The software developed by ZINFORMATICA uses proprietary image recognition algorithms that, combined with the classic sensor, is used by the cameras to understand the position and possession of the ball; it is therefore possible to have information and statistics in real time during the game.
The integration of this project with a classic table football is quite simple without involving major structural changes to the same.
This system is ideal not only for competitive or passionate races, but also as an innovative and highly engaging marketing tool.
