Imaging systems for sports tracking


Machine vision technology does not only achieve extraordinary results in industrial applications, it is also very useful in other areas. The following article shows some examples from the sporting world.

One of the best penalty-stopping goalkeepers


Numerous international football stars such as Messi, Neymar and others have already tried to beat this goalkeeper from the penalty spot – mostly without success. Standing between the goalposts is not a human being, but RoboKeeper – probably the world's fastest goalkeeper.

Roller coaster ride for high speed imaging


For many of the millions of people who ride most thrilling roller coasters and similar rides in entertainment parks around the world, the experience wouldn’t be complete without a souvenir picture taken at a critical part of the ride. As rides get faster and more complex, so do the technical challenges in capturing those pin-sharp images. Vision technology specialist, STEMMER IMAGING has worked closely with Picsolve, the leading image capture partner for the leisure and entertainment industry, to develop a new high speed imaging system that can meet those challenges.
