Abstract

An automated football throwing system could utilize RTLS hardware and software to locate an intended receiver and calculate his speed and direction to determine the proper speed and trajectory to throw the ball. The automated football throwing system could be placed on a tripod with a two-axes servo system to automatically aim and throw the ball without user intervention.

Automated Football Throwing System

Current football throwing machines require a user to manually aim the machine and set the speed at which the machine throws the football. If the user wants to throw the ball to a different area of the field they must manually re-aim the machine and adjust the speed accordingly.

An automated football throwing system could utilize RTLS hardware and software to locate an intended receiver and calculate his speed and direction to determine the proper speed and trajectory to throw the ball. The automated football throwing system could be placed on a tripod with a two-axes servo system to automatically aim and throw the ball without user intervention.

The automated football throwing system could also allow the ball to be thrown ahead or behind the receiver for training purposes. The automated football throwing system could also throw the ball above or below the shoulders to test the receiver's ability to adjust to a miss-thrown ball.
