Challenge: Innovative coverage of a badminton court
Challenge description:
There is a need for a badminton mat. It can be placed on the floor or an industrial surface such as concrete, etc. Accordingly, the additional depreciation is required. The surface of the ground must be such as to dampen the landing after the "pike" and at the same time not to reduce the stepping.

It should be noted that the existing badminton court solutions last for ten years and more. Also, it must be possible to paint line areas on the surface that do not disappear.

The mat should be easily placed and removed (for example, it can be divided into multiple parts, as well as putting it together; not much tape is needed each time).

If possible: Install badminton court/mat and badminton ruffle sensors that detect both players and ruffle movement on the court, as well as record line events. Such a "smart" badminton court solution has not been created in the world yet.

During the hackathon, teams can solve the challenges set by the partners, as well work on own new or work in progress ideas.

If possible, we suggest the teams to find ways to adapt their solutions to the challenges set by the partners, as they are looking for teams to work together and start pilot projects after hackathon.
