We have gathered a team of experts in software engineering, engineers in a field of tracking fast-moving objects, marketing, and sports professionals and enthusiasts, all that in order to introduce the worldwide audience with an app that will change a way of training and gameplay of table tennis worldwide.
Our task wasn’t as simple as it looks at first sight. We spent many hours, dedicated to problem-solving in different areas: from ball tracking to synchronization of high-speed cameras.
The first problem that we came across was the technological barrier, but our engineers managed to synchronize high-speed cameras to trigger at the same time. That gave us a base for a desktop application that measures ball speed and spin and analyses data of a table tennis match.
The second challenge was to test that by professional players. Our friends from table tennis club Mladost - and especially former European table tennis champion Aleksandar Karakašević gave us full assistance on the project and provided us with professional table tennis player's insight. With a lot of knowledge, enthusiasm, hard work and a little bit of luck we are ready to put our app on Play Store and iTunes, for free and for your enjoyment.
A reward for this hard work was a Grant from Innovation fund Serbia, co-financed by Europian Union and World bank in Serbia. This was the first event in Serbia that gathered the top European experts, investors, and most promising worldwide startups.
This is what made our Pongio App!
