FIFA has stated that the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar, which begins on November 21st, would feature semi-automated offside technology. Using 29 data points for each player, the new system will calculate each player’s precise position 50 times every second.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar will begin on November 21. The ball will have an IMU sensor inside it, and modern technology can determine a player’s precise location on the field.
FIFA WORLD CUP 2022 TO USE SEMI-AUTOMATED OFFSIDE TECHNOLOGY FOR ACCURATE DECISIONS
Beginning on November 21, 2022, Qatar will host the FIFA World Cup. On the largest stage of all, semi-automated offside technology will be utilised as a support tool for the video match officials and the onfield officials to assist them in making quicker, more precise, and repeatable offside rulings.
Gianni Infantino, the president of FIFA, declared in The Vision 202023 that FIFA would endeavor to completely utilise technology in football and further enhance VAR after the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, where it was successfully implemented.
In actuality, for the past three years, FIFA has been on the cutting edge of game technology.FIFA has worked with Adidas and a number of partners, namely the Working Group for Innovation Excellence and technology vendors, over the past few years to improve the VAR system, including the implementation of semi-automated offside technology.
The new system uses 12 specialized tracking cameras that are placed below the stadium’s roof to follow the ball and analyses up to 29 data points for each player 50 times per second to pinpoint their exact location on the field. The 29 collected data points cover all limbs and extremities that are crucial for detecting offside.
Al Rihla, Adidas’ official match ball for Qatar 2022, will offer an additional essential component for the detection of narrow offside situations because an inertial measuring unit (IMU) sensor will be put inside the ball. This sensor allows for extremely precise identification of the kick point.
By combining the limb- and ball tracking data and using artificial intelligence, the cutting-edge system instantly informs the video match officials inside the video control room whenever the ball is received by an attacker who was in an offside position when the ball was played by a teammate.
Before informing the onfield referee of the proposed decision, the video match officials individually review the automatically created kick point and the automatically generated offside line, which is based on the computed positions of the players’ limbs. With this technique, which only takes a few seconds to complete, offside decisions can be made more swiftly and accurately.
