Curling Sport

    Curling, a sport with ancient origins from Scotland, has gained plenty of popularity over the years. The sport is played on ice, where players slide polished granite stones across a sheet towards a target area, referred to as the house. The objective is to get as many of your team’s stones closer to the center of the target area than your opponent’s. What makes curling unique is that players can influence the path of the stones by sweeping the ice ahead of the sliding stone. The sport requires strategy, precision, and teamwork. It may seem like a simple game at first glance, but it’s a formidable challenge with its own complexities that keep players and enthusiasts hooked. With its increasing exposure in recent years, curling is fast becoming a household name in the sports world.

    Business Need

    We were tasked with the requirement to detect the stone in the yard and calibrate the stone and the yard to a 2D bird view to visualize the ball. After that, we would be able to draw the trajectory of the stone and calculate the speed/time/vector of the stone at some pre-defined points (at the hog lines).
