We see football as a key driver of social change. That’s why, in 2019, we created Fieeld, a device that promotes inclusion and improves accessibility by enabling visually impaired people to experience football like never before.
The device allows you to track the ball and the players (all preloaded) with your fingertips.
It’s designed for users to follow the game easily with both hands. The grid screen on the top is the pitch (with raised line markings), while a pointer moves around to indicate the ball's position.
High-definition cameras that cover every blade of grass pinpoint the ball by gathering data on the length and width of the pitch, recording of the ball's coordinates.
The data then passes to the device, which has a 2D tracking system marking the exact whereabouts of the ball on the Fieeld pitch.
Each component is based on tests carried out by subjects with varying degrees of sight as well as coordination and touch.
The grid is a perfect combination of elasticity, softness, smoothness and resistance that ensures an optimal tracking experience. The lines of the pitch are raised and easily recognizable by touch. Within the device, the pointer that acts as the ball has the perfect size and feel to locate and track it while it moves.
