    We are looking to open a golfing driving range whereby you hit the golf balls at targets and if they go in one of the holes, you are awarded a different number of points.

    This is already being done by a company with Radio Frequency chipped balls and is patented. I wonder if there are any other types of sensor that might work like laser/infrared??



    Really appreciate everyones help!

    Coat each ball with an LCD coating, so that its brightness changes a little in a programmable pattern. Then any camera with a high enough frame rate can identify the ball. (And LCD's take very little power.)

    Or use IR LED's that turn on for 30 seconds after they are hit. Again use cameras (silicon sensor cameras can see near infrared.)
