Abstract:
The horseracing industry currently lacks media attention. Studies have indicated the sport’s viewing and gambling declination over the decades. While popular televised sports such as football and baseball maintain a modernized entertainment culture through high-definition wireless streaming, horseracing remains in the 'binocular era'. An idea is introduced and a solution is analyzed to establish a foothold for horseracing in contemporary entertainment and inspire a developing fan base. EquiSight LLC desires wireless telemetry within the form factor of a jockey's helmet to meet these ends. The system devised must function while satisfying safety regulations. Individual component decisions are justified in addition to safety and quality tests. Current technology restricts bandwidth and data transfer rate. Standard-and high-definition possibilities and implications are discussed. Analog and digital transmission systems are evaluated and a preference justification is developed. A reliable power source and integration technique are chosen. Environmental, space, and range constraints are considered. Two-way audio communication between the jockey and trainer is described. In summary, a compact solution for EquiSight LLC is presented and its design choices are reviewed. The proposed system, implemented within a $3000 budget, will attract new fans, reignite interest, and provide a fairness and/or outcome judging tool.
