Quuppa, a global provider of Real-Time Locating Systems (RTLS), announced its first ever round of funding, worth €20 million. Quuppa’s indoor positioning technology is at the core of the Wisehockey platform.
Modern sports analytics can prove useful in unexpected ways: after the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic, Wisehockey received a request from North America to calculate the exposure time of hockey players within a two meter radius of each other.
Wisehockey is breaking into the world of football. The world’s first positioning data based real-time football analytics system was tested in May. Automatic real-time statistics based on player and ball tracking have never been seen in football before.
In order to take real-time sports analytics to a new location, it’s not always required to carry out permanent installation work. Wisehockey’s new portable Quuppa locators allow setup of the automatic analytics platform anywhere, on an event site or in a sports venue.
