What is an Indoor Golf Simulator?
An indoor golf simulator combines hardware and software components that can track the club, ball or both. Most indoor golf simulators utilize a floor mounted sensor pad that tracks the club going back and through the ball. High end indoor golf simulators like Protee and Trugolf use other sensors to track the ball. These included acoustic sensors and high speed cameras. Indoor golf simulator sensors can have 16-101 optic sensors. The indoor golf simulator sensor pad is connected to a gaming computer thru a usb cable or a usb to serial adapter. The computer is then connected to a short throw projector ( via hdmi or vga ) that is either ceiling mounted, frame mounted or floor mounted. The second you hit the ball, you will see it going down the fairway on the golf impact screen. Most indoor golf simulators can double as a home theater/movie screen. Imagine watching football on a 150 inch diagonal screen!
