World's first tennis robot hitting balls with a racket. Conventional robots cannot provide effective practices because it is impossible to foresee the timing of ball release and ball pitches. These problems are solved by hitting balls with a racket. Speed of a ball can be adjusted between 20 km/h and 70 km/h. The bobot can slso release balls in different pitches, such as spin, lob, smash. The robot is remote-controlled. The manufacturer is expecting introduction of robotts to tennis schools and others. [movie]
