Thanks everyone, for the many responses. I was surprised to find that the
Hockey Rink has been the venue of prior studies, both (way) pre-GPS, and now
using very modern, refined, (Non GPS) RF tracking technologies.
Unfortunately the proven, precision tool that was developed for the Hockey
Motion studies could/would not be ecomically supported even though it
received enthusiastic receptions and was used effectively by a couple of
Professional NHL teams. It costs approx $500,000 for complete
installation and commissioning. At this highest level, it was surprising
that the bills still wouldnt be paid. Especially, since now, only a couple
of weeks, to month or two, of some Professional atheletes' salaries could
pay for the complete system.
Perhaps some researchers can find an urgent need to further use the
technology, and can pay the freight.....
