Information Communications Technology or ICT is being used today for a variety sports-related activities, including the assessment of sports injuries, detecting false starts in races and for CAD purposes. Digital technology enables people in sports to play better and assists designers in creating a higher grade of sporting aids/equipment.
ICT is broken down in two major areas. Technologies cover traditional computer based applications as well as digital sharing. By using ICT, athletes and sporting goods companies can take advantage of innovative technologies to improve their performance or enhance their product line. For example, sports fans subscribe to RSS feeds to keep up with the latest information about their favorite teams while stadiums use computer applications for goal line technology. CAD is used to design sail boats, kayaks, tennis racquets and Formula One race cars as well.
