Officially .. FIFA announces the activation of the “semi-automatic” infiltration technology in the World Cup

The International Football Association (FIFA) has decided to officially adopt the semi-automatic stealth technique during the World Cup in Qatar this year.

There has been some speculation in recent times about this proposal to help rulers detect cases of intrusion using technology, with many pros and cons to the idea.

Finally, the International Federation, under the leadership of its President Gianni Infantino, decided to activate this feature, which was successfully tested in the Arab Cup and the Club World Cup last year.

Communication with fans in the stadiums is improved by displaying 3D animations on the giant screens of the stadium and for television viewers to show how the offside decision was made.

What did Infantino say about this position?

“Semi-automatic intrusion technology is an evolution of video technology systems that have been adopted around the world,” the FIFA president said in comments from Britain’s Sky Sports.

“This idea is the culmination of three years of research and testing to bring the best to the teams, players and fans heading to Qatar later this year.”

“The International Federation is committed to using technology to improve the game of football at all levels, and the use of this technology is the clearest evidence of that.”

How does semi-automatic burglary work?

The technology uses 12 special tracking cameras installed under the pitch to track the ball 50 times per second based on each player’s 29 data points to calculate their exact position on the pitch.

The 29 points accumulated include the presence of all parties involved in every possible offside that occurs during the match.

The World Cup ball known as “The Journey” is an essential part of offside detection as a sensor is placed inside it to send ball data to the video operating room 500 times per second, allowing for highly accurate detection of the point at which the ball was kicked before it was kicked. Reach the player who is likely to be offside.

With all this data, the new technology automatically issues an offside warning to the VCRs in their private room when the attacker receives the ball in an offside position.

Before informing the field umpire, the video umpires manually validate the proposed decision, automatically identifying the selected kick point and the offside plan identified in the same way, and this whole process takes place within a few seconds, helping to make decisions faster and more accurately. to take .
