First World Cup with Goal-line sensors


The 2014 World Cup will be making history thanks to the implementation of a Goal control system, which tracks the ball with high precision, and confirms whether it crosses the goal line or not.

Fifa has commissioned a German company to install the system, which is made up of several cameras and an operating system software. Fourteen cameras (seven on each goal post), have been fixed in all twelve World Cup stadiums, and they will record 500 images per second, with a computer processing the frames.

When the ball enters the goal, the referee will receive a notification on his watch, in the form of a vibration and a message.

Apart from the hundreds of new devices to watch and share the World Cup 2014, this competition will be remembered also for this new innovation which promises more precision and fair play.
