Wednesday, July 13, 2022, at 5:03 MYT ZURICH, 13 July — Fifa has announced the introduction of a new semi-automated technology that will be able to transmit video match referees offside alerts in real time for the upcoming World Cup of soccer in Qatar. Connected balls and a network of cameras that monitor every participant on the field will enable this. The upcoming soccer competition will have semi-automated offside detection technology, according to Fifa. Referees will be able to make judgments more quickly thanks to this technology, which will assist keep the game moving. Under the stadium roof, at least 12 cameras are used by the semi-automated offside detection system to track each player with up to 29 data points (primarily on the face and extremities of the limbs). In order to precisely estimate each player’s precise location on the field at any given moment, these are watched 50 times each second. The official 2022 Fifa World Cup ball has a sensor in the center that can relay data up to 500 times per second, enabling accurate kick point identification. An alert regarding a probable offside incident will then be routinely delivered to the video match referees by merging all of this data and using sophisticated algorithms. If the officials determine that the player is offside after briefly reviewing the play sequence, they immediately notify the referee who is on the field. To prevent lengthy timeouts during the game, this procedure should just take a few seconds to complete. Keep in mind that each choice will result in a 3D animation showing the precise location of every participant involved in the incident. If necessary, it might be televised and shown in the stadium. This new innovation works in conjunction with video-assisted refereeing (VAR), which was implemented at the most recent World Cup, which France won in 2018. The 2022 Fifa World Cup is set to begin on November 21 and conclude on December 18, Qatar’s National Day, on Sunday and Monday, respectively. The ETX Studio
