Outline

It is judging support system that uses 3D sensing, AI, and a database to fairly judge gymnastics events, which have become increasingly sophisticated and complex in recent years. The 3D sensor, app, and UX is designed for both players and judges. It also aims to contribute to the overall excitement of sporting events, with a view to strengthening athletes and using them for entertainment.

Evaluation

Equipped with 3D sensing and AI technology, this "AI automatic scoring system" accurately analyzes the quick movements of the gymnasts, removing the subjectivity of judges and allowing a fair global scoring. While the UI/UX appears rather heavily armored, the body is meticulously designed in a way so the unit does not give off an oppressive feeling to the athletes. Following a series of experiments since 2017, the company is making final adjustments so the system can be fully utilized at the 2020 Olympics. In addition to the athletes' performance, we are looking forward to such systems at work behind the scenes at the Tokyo Olympics/Paralympics.
