Another sensor is worn by the person taking shots and this sends a signal to the net. It has been designed to be worn under a sleeve or a wrist band. When the wearer shoots at the net it sends an alert to the net sensor that a ball is coming and this is able to record shots that are made and those that are not.

It collects data which can then be analysed using a smartphone app. It does much more than collect the amount of shots on target and those missed. It can also calculate percentages and a map of the shots made. To help improve on weaknesses it offers training so that the wearer can work on making improvements. Coaches of basketball can also use it to assign a workout to the player and then keep an eye on the progress being made.
