Outdoor events are difficult to follow due to the distances involved and the remoteness of the competition area. We hire out robust little units that send out their signal to the maps at chosen intervals. See table below for the duration of the battery life. The trackers are GPS units which means they use satellites to work out their location and then they send this information to our live map on the web using the telecommunications network. These units are not reliant on any specific network allowing them to work everywhere.
Watch key moments unfold by "Dot Watching" with the use of our technology:
The trackers are lightweight and are just larger than a matchbox - 78mm high x 40 mm wide x 22mm deep. Total weight 90g.
Most units waterproof and are pre-sealed in plastic pouches.
The units have a large buffer, so if you are in a location with no mobile signal, the tracker will record the location and upload to our servers when back in range.
The trackers work when looking at the sky so best attached to a user’s shoulder
