What is the Hawk’s Eye and how does it work?
The Hawk Eye It is a computer system that analyzes at high speed the images recorded by a series of cameras to determine with just a few seconds to determine whether or not the ball has crossed the goal line under the goal.
7 cameras are installed per goal, normally located in the upper part of the stadium. These cameras work at 60 frames per second. Subsequently, the signals are sent to a computer system for processing and tracking the trajectory of the ball in 3D.
The system is capable of fully locating the ball, although only a small part of it is visible in the image. As soon as the ball crosses the goal line, a signal is sent to the central whistle clock. The system can recognize a goal even if only two of the seven cameras have detected the ball.
The precision and reliability of the system is millimetric, so that it is ensured that there will be no room for controversy that may be caused by the shots after the decision made by the center.
