WAS HIS KNEE DOWN WHEN BALL BREAKS PLANE OF GOAL LINE - NOW WE KNOW

Updated: Feb 17, 2021

Here is a list of the 9 NEW 2021 Football TECHNOLOGIES that we at First Down Laser Line Company have Patents filed, and in development.

COMBINATION DETECTION AND REPORTING FIRST DOWN LASER LINE SYSTEMS AND METHODS GOAL POSTS - GOAL LINE - FIRST DOWN LINE - KNEE DOWN AND LINE UP LINE FOR ACCURATE QUICK BALL PLACEMENT AFTER EVERY PLAY - AR VIEWER 1. The safe first down laser line projected directly onto the playing field. Computer algorithm controlled up and down the field. To eliminate or augment the present old fashioned and time-consuming flag chain sets measurements.

2. Knee sensor (painted sensor on the uniform knees of all players) to detect and report when a player’s knee touches or hits the playing field, before or after the ball is caught, goal line is broken or a first down is made. Under a pile of players its not easy to do now.

3. Painted inside ball sensor, to track the balls location for catches, touchdowns, first downs, extra points and 3 points kicking between the goal posts.

4. Goal line painted sensor, for touchdown monitoring before or after the knee hits the ground. Goal Line painted sensor. Under a pile of players, its not easy to quickly tell now.

5. First down line painted sensor, to detect knee position when ball breaks the plane of the first down laser line, or that programed location first down on the field. Programmed real time location of the first down on the field.

6. Goal posts sensors, for kicking, to accurately detect and report a good kick between the goal posts, from high in the sky.

7. Augmented Reality AR First down Yellow graphic Line viewer, in stadium.

Allows the players, coaches, referees, officials and fans in the stadium to all see what we are now used to seeing on a football television telecast at home. The first down yellow line graphic.

To Install in those polarized shields the players put in their helmets. It would be an AR (augmented reality) system, which would show them the first down yellow line graphic now painted on the games television broadcast, as if it were there right in front of them.

Allowing everyone in the stadium wearing these polarized shield, glasses or goggles to see and utilize the first downs position on the field.

Our real first down Laser line on the field, is the best. But, we also want to offer our augmented reality work around, to the NFL and College Football - as a alternative method.

8. Accurate Ball Placement NEW laser "line up line".


NFL today with no "line up line"

  1. First down from the 32

  2. Runner tackled at the 35 near the sideline after gaining 3 yards

  3. Linesman puts his foot down where the runner was tackled, tosses ball to another official who tosses it to another official. This official then looks 20 yards across the field to see where the original linesman foot is & places the ball (approximately) where the foot is

NFL with the laser "line up line"

  1. First down from the 32. The first down laser line is at the 42

  2. Runner tackled at the 35 near the sideline after gaining 3 yards

  3. Linesman puts his foot down where the runner was tackled, our NEW laser "line up line" automatically appears at the linesman’s foot showing the exact position where the runner was tackled. The linesman tosses ball to another official who tosses it to another official. This official then places the ball at the NEW laser "line up line" at the exact spot marked by the original linesman. The NEW laser "line up line" then automatically shuts off.

9. Catch or not a catch real time monitor, when any receiver catches a ball, this indicator will show if the ball touched or hit any part of the ground, before the catch. Reporting instantly to the officials, if it was a catch or not a catch.
