The system started operating just before the tournament itself during two training days and operated without any problems until the last day of the competition. During the tournament, the system was evaluated by BWF representatives. During this event, Venu Mahalingam - Major Events Manager was present on behalf of BWF. The system was very well evaluated by judges and a BWF representative. In particular, its accuracy was appreciated.
