News approved. FIFA is counting on her for the championship in Qatar

Thanks to the new feature, the computer warns the video referee about offside and he then makes a decision. “The system is ready and so are we. All the tests have been carried out to our complete satisfaction,” said the head of the FIFA Referees Commission, Pierluigi Collina.

Each stadium in Qatar will have twelve cameras under the roof and the footballers will be scanned fifty times per second through 29 points. In combination with the sensor in the ball, the collected data is then evaluated by artificial intelligence and creates a 3D animation. In the event of offside, it will alert the video referee and the spectators will see it on the big screen in the stadium.

According to Collina, the entire assessment process will be much faster and more accurate than before. The final decision should be made within 25 seconds. “So far, even with the best technique, it takes an average of 70 seconds,” Collina said.

FIFA has confirmed that the new technology will be deployed at every match at the World Cup. For example, the Arab Cup in Qatar in December or the Club World Cup in January served as tests.
