TECHNOLOGY OF FORPHEUS Technologies of FORPHEUS

01

High-speed and high-accuracy synchronized sensing for acquisition of data during a table tennis rally.

Upgraded cameras and sensors allow FORPHEUS to simultaneously detect movements of the ball, player, and racket with high speed and accuracy through synchronized sensing.

POINT 1
High-speed image processing stereo camera detects the ball’s movement.
POINT 2
Two motion sensors identify the movement of the human player.
POINT 3
High-speed cameras detect the movement of the racket.

02

More human-like moves with the ability to cut/drive return balls, etc.

Increased number of control axes plus high-speed control with a cycle time of less than 1/1000th of a second. This expands the range of possible movements in the way that a human player does.

POINT 1
6-axis robotic arm enables skillful strokes.
POINT 2
High-speed control of the robotic arm at a cycle time of less than 1/1000th of a second.

03

Accurate trajectory prediction and improved coaching skills based on sensor-collected data.

Based on a variety of sensor-collected data, such as movements of the ball, player, and racket, FORPHEUS can predict the direction the player will return the ball before it is actually hit. FORPHEUS can also advise each player how to improve.

POINT 1
Predicts the trajectory of the ball to be returned by the player based on the movements of the player, ball, and racket.
POINT 2
Determines the skill level of the player and adapts by adjusting the speed and location of the returns.
POINT 3
Compares the player’s movements with those of an expert player and gives advice for improvement.

"Sensing & Control + Think" technology
has been leveraged in the manufacturing industry.
