An important component in this ball:
- A microchip inside the soccer ball - The microchip sends a signal to a computer that stores the information on where the ball is located on the field, and that redirects the message to the referee, so he can make a decision. According to Adidas, makers of the 'Intelligent ball', the microchip will not have any effect on the overall weight or flight of the ball.
- Referee’s signal unit - The unit receives the message from the central computer and indicates when a goal has been scored. The unit is a watch that the referee wears around his wrist. Either a beep or a vibration alerts the referee that the ball has fully crossed the line, no matter what obstruction may lie in either the referee's, or the ball's way.
- Wired magnetic goal field - Thin wired are put around the goal to create the magnetized field that the microchip in the ball reacts with to send signals to the main computer. Because of the "robust and stabilized" aspects of the ball and the wired magnetic field, the system is not affected by any weather changes throughout the match.
