Imagine that your employees can be recognized and that instructions are tailored to their skill and experience level by automation; combining the best of both humans and machines in manufacturing.

Forpheus demonstrates our owned core technologies and enables you to experience today the leading technology of tomorrow by playing the fastest reaction sport on earth with our cobot at Hannover Messe.

Sensing combined with machine learning and artificial intelligence to improve your game

By combining vision and motion sensors with technology that accurately captures the speed of your moving ball, it can determine not just how it needs to respond to return your shot, but also where your ball will land when it does.

By using these speed-sensing cameras above the table, this means that you can see exactly where the ball will be returned, and thus improve your game. It even detects how good you are and adjusts accordingly.

Just so that you don’t feel too disheartened, the net shows encouraging messages as well as the speed of your ball and the length of the rally.

Our showcase Forpheus, the first machine table tennis tutor that interprets how you feel and play and helps you improve your game, is just the beginning of our new technologies that creates your future!
