A Virtual Driving Range; Ideal for Practice

X-GOLF MINI is a compact version of X-GOLF NEX. It has excellent performance in speed and direction measurement using high-speed light sensor system and adopts fast and stable sensor and controller.

By raising the reaction speed of a ball and enhancing the accuracy of measuring, X-Golf MINI never misses a shot data and expresses various ball flights realistically.

Three optical sensors for impact zone will calculate side spin value with impact angle, launch angle, etc at the hitting point by interpreting club's horizontal. Launch angle sensor measures ball flight speed and launch angle and floor sensor measures speed and direction of a ball. Adding optional spin camera enable the simulator to directly measure the spin of a ball.

Advantage and disadvantage for different type of sensors (Radar, vision, light sensor)

Classification Rader Type Vision Type
(GC2, VISION, X-GOLF EYE)
Combination of Light Sensor and Camera
(X-GOLF NEX)
Fundamentals
  • When players shot a ball outside, radar continuously tracks movement of a ball
  • Install at least two cameras that has the certain angle towards a ball.
  • When a player shots a ball, each camera captures a movement by certain period at the same time. (Camera should take at least 2 pictures)
  • Interpret the size and location of a ball on display and calculate the speed and a direction of a ball.
  • Interpret and calculate the spin by marked section of a ball on display.
  • Obtain movement of a ball and club (horizontal and vertical) by using a light sensor
  • Take a picture of a marked ball using a camera
  • Calculate space vector of club and a ball
  • Calculate the spin by interpreting image processing for marked section of a ball
Advantage
  • Differences may exists depending on performance of simulators, but data that tracked ball movements at outside is accurate.
  • However, indoor screen golf only tracks short distance, not total movement of a ball and it is comparably inaccurate.
  • To get accurate rev counts, obtain accurate images of a marked ball and process it with high-performance image processing tool.
  • Easy installation and user-friendly when it compares to light sensor type.
  • As for premium light sensor type, it has the best accuracy for repetition.
Disadvantage
  • When radar type is used to track short distance shot happened indoor, analysis data is comparably inaccurate.
  • Especially, analysis data for short distance approach or putting is not usable as a data.
  • If camera fails to obtain accurate images of a marked ball, rotation of a ball calculated is inaccurate
  • For measuring speed or a direction, accuracy is less than using a light sensor.
  • The technological gap about image processing will have the different deviation of accuracy.
  • If using a multi-channel, high performance, and high-speed system, it's hard to measure essential element accurately using a high speed.
※ The product specifications are subject to change for improvements.

Type and Purpose of Auxiliary Equipment for Golf

1. Launch monitor (radar, vision or combination type)
  • The main purpose of launch monitor is for club fitting. It reproduces after measuring movement of a ball (space vector, rotation) when making a shot using a test club under specific condition.
2. Screen Golf (radar, vision, light sensor or combination type)
  • The primary purpose of screen golf is for entertainment and swing analysis indoor. Just like a real game, many players can join to play, and it reproduces after measuring the movement of a ball (space vector, rotation) when making a shot using the variety of clubs.
3. Analyzer for swing movement (vision, sensor, equipment or combination type)
  • The primary purpose of swing movement analyzer is to analyze swing movement of a player and have different types & performance property. For high-performance analyzer, it reproduces after measuring the movement of a ball (space vector, rotation) and analyzing swing change.
