Greyhound Racing

The greyhound timing and tracking system was engineered and developed in Germany, using ultra-wideband (UWB) and radio frequency (RF) signals. This concept allows for accurate timing and tracking positions in greyhound racing within centimetres.

SECTIONAL TIMING & TRACKING SOLUTIONS

Each greyhound’s position is calculated based on the triangulation of the signal sent from tags and received by multiple pointers around the race track.

Key features include:

  • High accuracy within centimetres with data delivery 50 times per second
  • Live data streaming
  • Advanced ‘starting box’ algorithm tracking calculation
  • Wireless communication between receivers
  • Cost effective solution with real time data
