Various high-tech equipments such as unmanned equipments and environment friendly electric equipments will help events to go smoothly during the IAAF World Championships Daegu 2011.
First of all, sand arranger prepared for long jump and triple jump and powered by electricity attracts attention. Before, sand had to be arranged by rake-like equipments after jumping. However, clicking just a few buttons of this automatic equipment makes the sand mixed and tidy. Leveled sand leads to accurate judgments. Additionally, the time spent for the arrangement shortened to 30 seconds from 5 minutes.
This is the first event that automatic sand arrangers are introduced. A Korean company had been appointed to provide this state-of-the art automatic sand arranger.
Vehicle for collecting spears and discuses and others is also an unmanned equipment. The 30cm radio controlled vehicle was designed to collect shots, discuses, spears, etc. It shortens not only athletes’ waiting time making it possible for them to focus on events but also the total time spent for the events. In addition, personnel for events no longer have to run around the stadium and they do not have to worry about injuries any more.
Vehicle for lawn care prepares the best condition for athletes. It sprinkles water and pesticides evenly through several nozzles in the back. Within 10 minutes, spraying pesticides over soccer field-sized main field is finished.
Eco-friendly vehicles powered by electricity also attract attention. Among them, scooter is representative. One unusual thing about this scooter is that rider can ride the scooter in a standing posture. Maximum speed of the two-wheeled vehicle is 20 km. And it is perfect for traveling every corner of the stadium. Two scooters will be used this time. And in foreign countries, the scooters are used mainly by police officers and security guards.
Other up-to-date equipments such as 3 electric cars for conveying hurdles, 17 electric cars for transporting athletes, 2 electric buses for carrying poles will be introduced for the IAAF World Championships Daegu 2011.
