It was announced before the start of the World Cup that new technology will be used for offside refereeing. He was needed in the first game.
In just three minutes of the game, So Ecuador had to concede a goal to Qatar. However, towards the end of the day, they left the pitch with a 2-0 victory, with captain Ener Valencia scoring two goals.
That target, which semi-automatic technology did not allow, also belonged to Valencia. The striker had a fantastic header from Felix Torres, but before Valencia took the ball, Michael Estrada was in an offside position. The referee decided to cancel the goal and award a free kick.
And this is where Estrada gets stuck. He is behind goalkeeper Abdelkarim Hassan,
And this offside decision was made quickly with semi-automatic technology. Using 3D animation, the technology conveys that Fadlala is clearly offside.
12 cameras will be installed in each stadium to determine the movement of the ball and will extract data from a player’s 29 points. In addition, the inertial meter is located in the center of the ball. The video sends data to the AR 500 times per second and tells the exact position of the ball. The key components of offside detection are two sensors – sensors inside the ball and 12 cameras.
When a player receives the ball in an offside position, the VAR will automatically inform the VAR by combining the movement of the player’s limbs with the movement of the ball using artificial intelligence. Previously, the entire process was completed in 70 seconds, now it can be done in 25 seconds. Not only that, the referees can make more accurate and correct decisions this way.
This semi-automatic technology was first used at the Arabian Cup last year. Also, this time in the European Super Cup, the referees made an offside decision in the Real Madrid-Frankfurt match.
