Cambridge Consultants developed a system designed to help users improve their shooting skills in basketball.

The ArcAid system, demonstrated at CES 2014, consists of three cameras mounted behind a basketball backboard — two on the upper sides of the basket and one behind it. The two upper cameras analyze the arc, speed, and angle of a basketball in mid-air. The third one checks to see if the user sinks the basket. A large screen displays the data and the adjustments needed for the user to make the basket, like aim farther to the left or shoot harder.

The system can also be used for other sports and is designed to support sensors that can track movement across a larger area or field.

The system is only a part of a collection of technologies being developed by the company to analyze sports performance and provide data and coaching tips to help users improve in their particular sport.
