Another gap in one! Nissan is developing a self-driving golf ball for struggling players that perfectly putts every time

Some golfers are blessed with a huge drive, but many are cursed with a sloppy short game.

Now Nissan has tried to remedy this misery by creating a fully functioning self-propelled golf ball that places itself perfectly in the hole every time.

A video released by the Japanese manufacturer shows that it is being hit in a quirky direction by a toddler before he adjusts himself and packs a bird.

HOW DOES THE SELF-DRIVING GOLF BALL WORK?

An overhead camera detects the position of the ball and the cup.

When the ball is hit, a monitoring system calculates the correct route based on the movement of the ball and adjusts its trajectory.

By combining the sensor technology with an internal electric motor, the ProPILOT golf ball stays on its way to the cup.

Nissan says in a statement on its website: & # 39; The ProPILOT golf ball supports golfers by following a predefined route to their goal.

& # 39; Players can be confident that they will effortlessly reach their goal with every putt. & # 39;

It is inspired by the ProPILOT 2.0 driver assistance technology that, according to the company, will be installed in the upcoming salon, the Skyline.

Both systems work with the same central principle – the technology draws a line along a predefined route from current position to end goal.

On the car this is designed for driving up the driveway to the driveway (driveway to driveway), but the ball uses this to give the player a putt.

An overhead camera maps the origin and destination of the ball and calculates the best route after it has been hit based on movement and trajectory.

A small electric motor effortlessly drives the ball into the cup.

Nissan does not seem to have any plans to widen the use of his young company in golf technology.

But it offers visitors to the global headquarters in Japan the opportunity to view a demonstration in person until 1 September.
