IoT IN SPORTS: CHETU CREATES MOBILE APP FOR SMART SOCCER BALL TECHNOLOGY

Laravel JQuery App Development MySQL

IoT: OUT OF THE HOME & ONTO THE FIELD

The realm of sports is inherently a battle of skillsets, where those with superior ball handling, dribbling, and agility continually overpower those with lesser abilities. To level the playing field, our client envisioned a smart soccer ball, programed with motion sensors, that would allow players to view a series of metrics illustrating the depth of their skills and level of performance plus help them improve.

Even seasoned athletes need to continually practice to hone in on their skills. This soccer ball would give novices and professionals an opportunity to pinpoint their shortcomings and target areas to reach new levels of performance.

Catering to an increasingly mobile lifestyle, this client was looking to build a mobile app, which would connect to the smart soccer ball, enabling players to review statistics directly from their mobile device.

CHETU SYNCHRONIZES MOBILE APP WITH IoT SOCCER BALL

The client contacted Chetu for mobile application development services, seeking a robust application equally as intelligent as the smart soccer ball they were ready to bring to market. The embedded motion sensor technology records impact, spin, position, trajectory, number of ball passes, and play time, however they lacked a platform capable of reporting these metrics in real time.

Real-time performance analytics are a powerful training tool for athletes, serving as a personal coach for individuals of all ages and skill levels. To provide the holistic reporting needed to yield notable improvement, the client outlined a list of critical application features.

The Demands:

  • User registration prompt
  • Login portal
  • Social and linking functionalities
  • Ability to connect with the soccer ball through WiFi
  • Capable of recording the data during a session
  • Compiling statistics & generating reports
  • Automated leaderboard creation

ANOTHER TRIUMPH FOR THE INTERNET OF THINGS

Although this client onboarded Chetu to oversee and carry out mobile application development, this was also an augmentation project in part. The client's internal team continued to engineer the motion sensors and smart soccer ball, while the Chetu team developed a mobile solution using the data transmitted from the sensors.

To accomplish the data migration and code construction Chetu employed the following technologies:

  • MySQL (database)
  • Php
  • Laravel
  • JavaScript & jQuery
  • HTML
  • Bootstrap 3.1.1.
  • Github (Source Control)
  • Apache (Web Server)
  • Phonegap for Android and iOS app

Despite the complexity of synchronizing non-computerized items with electronic devices, Chetu was able to bring the clients must-have features to fruition, going above and beyond the original list of demands. The finished mobile application is Android and iOS compatible, giving users a fully interactive soccer experience.

Users input their information into the system, registering for accounts at the onset, and then logging into their personalized account every time after. After creating an account, users are able to update and alter their original registration as needed.

When connecting the mobile app to the smart soccer ball, users receive a notification when the two have paired. From that moment on, the ball transmits all game session data to the mobile application where athletes can view their statistics in real-time. They can share their data with other accounts, invite friends to join, and view leaderboards of other users.

The most profound capability is the tracking and reporting module, where players can review their improvement over time, understanding the progress they have made through a series of metrics.
