  1. STRIDE Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges Executive Director, Racing Steve Beason Executive Director, Information Technology

  2. Objectives • Sectional Timing Racing Information Dynamic Entertainment (STRIDE) • HKJC is committed to provide the best services and world-class sports entertainment to its customers in order to maintain and generate their interest in horseracing

  3. Benefits • Able to track the position of every runner in a race, in particular individual sectional times for better post-race analysis • Multimedia display on DV screen • All runner’s position in the race shown in sequence

  4. Trial/Demo • STRIDE used on trial basis at Hong Kong International Races (HKIR) on 14 December 2003 • Collect feedback and comments to aid future rollout plans

  5. Race Sectional Time Report

  9. Technology • A network of 31 RF transceivers are placed around the track • Every 80ms, they send an RF signal that detects a small transponder (tag) placed in the jockey's cap • The location processing server (LPS) then calculates the tag's location on the track • From the LPS, sectional times are captured, and tracking data is sent to the graphics systems for multimedia display Tag front Transceiver Tag back

  10. Our partner - ORAD • Headquarters in Israel with offices in the US, Germany, UK, Spain, Hong-Kong and Japan • World leader in real time virtual imaging processing technologies • First production system anywhere

  11. System Overview

  12. STRIDE tag Technology

  13. Timing Methods & Terminology • Finishing time (official) • Each horse’s race time • Generated from the photo finish system • Sectional times • Overall sectional time (for lead horse) • Individual sectional times • Both generated by STRIDE • Accumulated sectionals • Total of horse’s individual sectional times • Variance with official finishing time • Timing facts • 1 horse length is approximately 2.43 m • 1 horse length travelled in 0.158 sec • Difference between jockey’s cap and horse’s nose is approximately 0.05 sec

  14. Timing Methods & Terminology • Finishing time and accumulated sectional times will not be the same • Taken from different systems • Photo finish time measured by horse’s nose • Accumulated sectional times measured by tag in jockey’s silk cap • System variance is +/- 10 cm • Average 0.02 sec per section • Average 0.08 sec per race

  15. Timing Methods & Terminology Start Photo finish Finishing time (1/10th sec) Fromhorse’s nose Gates open Accumulated Sectionals (1/1000th sec) Finish Start + + + + Section Section Section +/- 10 cm +/- 10 cm +/- 10 cm From jockey’s cap +/- 10cm Gates open

  18. Graphics • Cybersport • Generates the virtual sectional lines, and the virtual branding graphics

  19. HKIR Demo • CyberGraphics • Generates the STRIDE “Dashboard”
