Develop apps for Smart Tennis Sensor

The Smart Tennis Sensor plugs into the end of a tennis racket and records data about all the shots you make throughout a game or practice. With the SDK, you can develop apps for analyzing and presenting that data in real-time. Sign up below to get the SDK.

Create your own solution for tracking and monitoring

The Smart Tennis Sensor SDK allows you to get started with true performance tracking by interfacing the data stream of the Smart Tennis Sensor.

Improve sports performance

With a weight of approximately 8 grams (0.29 oz), the Smart Tennis Sensor plugs into the end of the racket handle. On the inside it holds built-in motion and vibration sensors that record a range of data for every shot made. Connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth, data on swing speed, swing type, ball speed, ball spin, and impact location is fed in for every stroke. Find out more about features, list of compatible rackets and where to buy on the Smart Tennis Sensor product page.


Develop your customized app with the SDK

The Smart Tennis Sensor SDK package contains binaries, sample code and documentation for you to develop your own customized tennis app. You have full creative freedom of how to present, analyze and share the collected tennis data. The SDK provides functionality for managing connections with the Smart Tennis Sensor, the database of racket models and the ability to collect the shot data in real time. On GitHub, you find publicly available sample code and documentation. To get access to the SDK, sign up here.

More ways to interact with Smart Tennis Sensor

It is also possible to extract tennis data using the Smart Tennis Sensor app (available on Google Play and App Store). The app has a live video mode that records a video of the player and stores the shot data as metadata in the video file. Instructions and sample code for how to extract the video metadata is available on GitHub. Another way of accessing the tennis data is to export it as a CSV file from the app. Read this white paper on how to export and interpret the CSV file.
