HiPSter is supporting the groundsmen to get track of the quality and safety of their sports pitch and stay in control of the important game and safety properties of the pitch. A one-in all measurement tool which presents the data automatically in the groundsmen’s dashboard so they can directly analyse and act without any (manual) administration. Having also an independent tool to communicate with the players about the quality of the pitch. And that’s without mentioning the direct safety aspect: many injuries can be prevented with a safe pitch: another major cost item in modern top sport, not to mention the personal suffering.
The HiPSter is driven to the right measurement location by the groundsmen where he can start the measurements supported by an easy-to-use tablet. The groundsmen are fully in control and after executing and accepting the measurement values the results will be sent by Wifi to the dashboard as soon as there is a stable connection.
In the meantime results are stored on the tablet. The HiPSter also can be used as standalone system.
The dashboard is supporting the groundsmen to collect and present all the required data and with it’s engine it can predict the quality of the pitch. Beside the performance data of the FIFA which is measured with the HiPSter the dashboard is also collecting the data of our sensor suite: turf data with soil sensors, climate data of the weather stations, LED grow lighting data as well as the players feedback.
Besides the data, also recipes and groundsmen logbook-data are stored in the dashboard. Thus the dashboard is the platform supporting smart pitch maintenance and pitch management.
The Dashboard, which in addition to the data from the HiPSter also uses other data captured in real-time in and around the pitch, has become the groundsmen’s most important tool. In fact, it has already become his buddy! Thanks to the predictive value of the system, there is insight at any time into the maintenance measures required for the perfect turf.
The measured data of the HiPSter will be automatically uploaded to the dashboard as soon as there is a stable Wifi connection. In the Dashboard an AI engine is running to generate the trend analyses and pitch predictions. As the Dashboard is an open platform also integration with other tools is possible as well as possibility for manual logging of data and reporting.
The Dashboard collects beside the mentioned measurements of the HiPSter also the player feedback data, climate, grass vitaliy and other important parameters which are needed to model the perfect pitch. The common goal – better pitches for professional athletes around the world – is our guiding principle.
The dashboard is available for individual clubs as well as for complete leagues to be able to develop a uniform standard in the leagues and exchange knowledge and innovations between clubs
At any given moment, it’s possible to check to what extent a part of the field deviates from the preset goals and regulations. Underlying all this is sustainability and circularity, as well as the business – including cost savings – for the stadium.
Hi Sports systems as the HiPSter can also be integrated into existing dashboards. The HiPSter as well as the Dashboard can be used as stand alone systems. HiPSter and Dashboard can offer also in a step-wise approach to come to fact based pitch management to support the groundsmen.
Hi Sports can provide hardware or connect with existing sensors. The sensor suite will collect data from climate and soil sensors. We present the results in an intuitive dashboard that helps you to act quicker and more accurately to weather changes. We replace gut feeling with real detailed insights from each individual sports pitch. By getting insights into your actual climate situation, you can make data-driven decisions. This results in 80% more effective turf maintenance.
