Tennis Commander (TC) is a spin-off of the University of Pisa that deals with “sport performance analytics”. Founded by three specialists in AI & Machine Learning, it has the vision to democratise the access to the technologies to analyse sportive performances. In particular, the start-up developed an app compatible with Android and iOS smartwatch and smartphone — thus, it does not require ad-hoc devices — to monitor performances of tennis players of all levels, providing access to detailed analysis of the game that are typically available only to professional players.
TC, based on Machine Learning and big data analysis techniques, it is unique in its category: beside identifying the kind of played strokes, it also detects the position occupied by the player on the court, useful to provide accurate indications. From the analysis of physical performances, to zone of comfort comparison, to strategic support. All in real time.
