Abstract: 

The Floor General is a state of the art sensor assisted basketball shooting system that is currently under development by Auto-Ball Enterprises. Floor General will bring a revolutionary feature to the basketball world by redefining the concept of an automatic shooting machine. The device will track the user on the court in real-time and use advanced system technology to retract and shoot the basketball to the player. Auto-Ball Enterprises will use motion detection and signal sensors to assist with the coordination of the launching mechanism to replicate a game-like feel to the player. The Floor General will ultimately provide what no other shooting machine can, by allowing for next level training for its users.
