Automation Associates Powers Red Bull Drift Shifters!
New Zealand became the first international destination for a new and exciting drifting motorsport event. Victoria St West saw national and international professional drift drivers battle it out on a pinball- inspired course of precision driving in front of 10,000 spectators.
The original concept devised by "Mad Mike" Whiddett had the drivers judged by an Automation Associates custom designed, computer controlled automated system that relied on more than 30 sensors around the arena to score competitors - the first time in the world that a panel of judges has not been used and thus removing all subjectivity.
The system combined sound and lighting effects with the live scoring including bonus points for combo 'tricks'.

Skate Park Pinball
Two skate boarders and a BMX rider have been given the chance to build their dream skate park.
The skate park looks and plays like a pinball machine, with lighting, sounds and scoring working in unison thanks to Automation Associates.
As the skaters travel over sensors in the park they rack up points just as you would in a pinball game. The 50 sensors built into ramps and jumps located around the park are connected to controlling software which triggers sounds, lights and scoring on the backboard.
Skater Mike Bancroft says “The lights and sensors make it more special than any other skate park”.
30 top skateboarders have been invited to a competition at the park this Saturday 4th of June, after which the park will be open for the public to enjoy.
