VisTrak Quantum C IR

VisTrak Quantum C IR

Competitively priced at just $3,499, (i.e. half the price of a Uneekor and a quarter of the price of a GC Hawk or an AboutGolf 3Trak)

the VisTrak Quantum offers all the high end features you'll ever want in all-camera tracking system.

How it works:

The VisTrak Quantum C features two hi-resolution triggered stereo cameras that capture ball launch angle, spin rate and spin axis

and a hi-speed free running VisTrak camera that captures ball path, ball speed, club face angle, club path and speed.

The two stereo cameras feature zoom lenses that capture hi-resolution large images of the spinning ball within its first 6 to 12 inches of flight.

These two cameras are triggered by the VisTrak camera as soon as two frames of the ball in flight are captured.

The trigger signal to one of the two cameras is delayed by 100 micro-seconds so that the two images show spin rotation.

Triggering the two cameras with a 100 micro second delay apart from each other is the equivalent of a 10,000 fps camera, only that just 2 frames are captured.

Note that only two frames of the spinning ball is all that is required to determine spin rate and spin axis.

Stereo vision detects the launch angle of the ball.

Image processing detects dimple edges and center points.

Image shift and rotation matching methods of the two ball images is used to measure the amount of rotation and direction within the 500 micro-second frame time.

Ball spin and spin axis is then derived from these two values.

Quantum C measures ball spin without markings on the ball.

VisTrak Q & A

VisTrak Quantum physics : Spin rate and spin axis theory

Measuring spin rate from an overhead camera system using spin dot balls

A little math is required to deduce the spin rate from the circle arc measured from the rotating and shifting key point pattern on the ball.

Knowing the circle arc length (i.e. the vertical shift of the key point pattern on the ball as viewed from above) and the radius of the ball, the arc central angle can be calculated.

This arc central angle is the rotation in degrees (or radians) for a given time between the two frames (1 ms) and from this, the spin rate can be calculated.

VisTrak Quantum data capturing method

1. The VisTrak camera detects when a ball is placed in the launch zone area

2. When a ball is detected, the stereo cameras are triggered to grab frames of the ball at the launch position.

3. The VisTrak camera is then placed in full speed mode (590 fps) while constantly checking to see if the ball moves forward.

4. As soon as the ball moves, (strike frame) a trigger signal is sent (via a GPIO line) to the stereo cameras

5. The stereo cameras are programmed to delay any trigger signal by 5 milli-seconds and 5.1 ms

6. The Stereo cameras then detect the height the ball is off the ground and calculates the launch angle and the spin rate based on the ball's rotation within 0.1 ms

7. The ball path - left or right - is detected by the VisTrak camera as is the club speed, face angle and club path

8. The ball speed is then calculated from the distance the ball has traveled from the ball strike frame in the VisTrak camera and the ball's position in the stereo cameras.

Notes:

While the camera's GPIO trigger signal is very fast (just a few nano seconds), there can be up to a 1.7 ms delay (1/590 frame rate) for the VisTrak camera to detect ball movement.

At a speed of 200 mph - and in a worst case - the ball may have already traveled some 6 inches before movement had been detected.

This distance has to be taken into account when measuring how far the ball has traveled within the 5 ms time frame in order to accurately measure ball speed.

After all these operations, a final check is made to see if the data is valid and that the ball's movement extended outside the launch zone.

i.e. it wasn't just a re-positioning of the ball on the hitting mat or from an inadvertant ball contact from a club waggle (or the ball just fell off the tee).
