The world of professional sports offers many opportunities to use positioning and tracking technologies. The objective in this case is to provide viewers and broadcasters with completely new types of information, which will provide novel viewing experiences and increase viewership. Even disabled athletes can benefit by using technologies such as guidance systems. Delivering this added value requires the ability to exactly locate balls, players, skiers or formula 1 cars. This is where tracking technologies come into play, which can provide that information.
