TUCSON, AZ—EquiSight’s innovative jockey camera technology wins at the University of Arizona Engineering Design Day. The team won second place for Texas Instrument Analog Design Contest and received $500 as well as an opportunity to compete in Texas Instrument’s national competition.
EquiSight won for their patent pending jockey cam prototype design. This smart horseracing helmet streams sound, vision and GPS data to give viewers a virtual reality experience that creates the illusion of being in the race along with the jockeys. The cutting edge camera system is being developed as a project by University of Arizona engineering students sponsored by EquiSight co-founders, Race Track Industry Program students David P. Matt and Kenleigh Hobby.
