Technology that called GoalControl was developed by a German startup which cost $ 3.5 million to operate.

How it works? GoalControl using 14 cameras to monitor every game and mounted in 12 stadiums in Brazil. The camera is used to detect the movement of the ball on the ground.

If the results of the analysis of the camera saying that the ball had crossed the goal line, GoalControl will send a message that read "GOAL" to smartwatch imposed by the referee in charge.
