Riedel Acquires LPM Tracking Technology

Riedel Communications has acquired the proprietary Local Position Measurement (LPM) technology from Dutch sports performance analysis expert Inmotio.

LPM is a radar technology-based system that measures the position of players and assets with an accuracy of +/- 3 cm, in high frequency (1.000 Hz), and in real time.

Since its founding in 2006 in Amsterdam, Inmotio has grown into a leading provider of data-driven sports performance analysis solutions, supplying sporting teams and associations around the world with physical and tactical insights through a range of wearable, hybrid, and full optical tracking solutions.

The LPM platform is the most accurate tracking technology available in the market and is based on a real-time network connected to various base stations placed around the measuring site. Athletes wear a special vest with a transponder that can be tracked in 2D and 3D space. Today's users appreciate its unmatched precision, its operational range of up to 1000 meters, and its capacity of 1000 users.
