the world hockey champions had a coach who inspired them by insisting that they start every match. there is an increasing reliance on technology to ensure that all arbitrations are unbiased. “A goal for your weaknesses. by imagining they were 0-3 down. The component of human error in making judgments of crucial decisions often turns out to be decisive. In the world of sports. another for your opponent’s strengths and a third for umpiring errors0.” In the past few decades. .ABSTRACT In the 1970s. There is thus a need to bring in technology to try and minimize the chances of human error in such decision making. skepticism about umpiring follies hasn’t abated. where stakes are increasing by every passing minute and an erroneous line-call can mean change of fortunes. It is not uncommon to see matches turning from being interesting to being one sided due to a couple of bad umpiring decisions.

using the law of sin. . given measurements of angles and sides of the triangle formed by that point and two other known reference points. Triangulation is the process of finding coordinates and distance to a point by calculating the length of one side of a triangle.Principle of hawk eye • A hawk Eye system is based on the principle of 'triangulation' in geometry. Triangulation is the process of determining the location of a point by measuring angles to it from known points at either end of a fixed base line.

therefore The coordinates and distance to a point can be found by calculating the length of one side of a triangle. . The formulas can be applied in flat or Euclidean geometry. given measurements of angles and sides of the triangle formed by that point and two other known reference points.

6 cameras are used. for a cricket field. These cameras are placed around the field at roughly the places as indicated in the diagram below: .Step-by-step details of the HAWKEYE system 1. The cameras: Typically.

This means each camera image would show a more prominent picture of the ball and hence the ball will be located more accurately. In order to get good accuracy. This puts some limitation on how restricted the view of a camera can be. so that there is lesser chance of their view being blocked by the fielders. There are two cameras. Nevertheless. However. we also need to keep in mind that the whole field of play has to be covered by just the 6 cameras which are available. the accuracy obtained by using 6 cameras is acceptable to the standards prevalent today. They are placed high in the stands. one needs to restrict the view of each camera to a smaller region. These 6 cameras are calibrated according to the distance they are at from the pitch. one each looking at the wickets directly in sideways fashion. the 6 cameras in use are positioned at roughly sixty degree from each other.As one can see. .
