How might we create a training prop that can help professional soccer players improve their free kick training and recreate real life scenarios?

The miro way

The world's first reactive soccer barrier

The world's first reactive soccer barrier

Overview

Our team designed, prototyped and built the first ever automatic soccer barrier that uses machine learning and predictive visual detection to recreate real-life scenarios. A professional training tool that can allow for infinite repetitions in real-life scenarios.

Solution

Product strategy workshops

Partnering with the client team, we conducted a series of workshops to help define a product vision and development roadmap that was user centric and aligned with their business goals.

Prototyping

From initial sketch to building a full featured product, we created & tested multiple prototypes to fine tune the mechanics, visual detection and material resistance.

Machine Learning

Developed and trained a custom visual detection algorithm that can identify players, distances and balls at 300ms reaction when there is a free kick.

The future of professional soccer training

Imagine being able to train for an important match with an accurate simulation of your opponent team’s barrier and how they would react to a free kick, exponentially changing your odds.
