Published

Loading...

Horse racing is a sport that has been around for a long time, even before technology became mainstream. And now that technology is the order of the day, the equestrian sports are being reshaped for a more enjoyable performance. Technology has been solely responsible for most of the advancements witnessed in the sports industry. Some of the ways the horse racing industry has significantly improved through technology include:

1. Advanced technology in horse racing bets

Technology has made betting more fun, enjoyable, and seamless for punters as well as sportsbook providers. With the different innovations surfacing in the horse racing sports, punters of varying tastes are getting more eager to stake on horses and jockeys of their choices. The effortless cutting-edge innovations have made it possible for gamblers to bet on horse racing sports right from their homes’ comfort without them having to visit a bookie’s office.

So many seamless cross-compatible portals and apps for both online slots and horse racing betting are available for punters to wager on the go. The advancement in technology has made so many things possible, including real-time updates and news about features and significant events in the horse racing industry. And other possibilities of virtual reality horse racing broadcasts anywhere from around the world.

2. Innovations for health maintenance

High-tech innovations are not just limited to the effortless broadcast of horse racing sports but also contribute mostly to horses’ health maintenance used in sports. New technologies have been utilized to help in building racehorses for enhanced efficiency and performance. Technology plays pivotal roles in training and monitoring the health of these horses.

Nowadays, when racehorses are injured, some of these innovations are used to heal injuries through proper medical equipment and veterinary medicine. Some of these medical innovations include X-rays for imaging, MRIs for detecting physical anomalies, endoscopes for thorough feedback, and maintenance of injuries when these medical procedures are carried out it easier and faster for health issues to be discovered and treated in racehorses.

The well-being of horses remains top-of-mind in equestrian sports. And technological innovations have made it possible for the health of racehorses to be monitored, maintained, and fully restored effectively.

Another exciting advancement in health maintenance in the horse racing industry is using technology to collect data about a horse. When a microchip is inserted within the racehorse, some important metrics are easily determined. These include gait, symmetry, stride, acceleration, time racing, among several others. Artificial intelligence has made it entirely possible to detect and simulate the performance and conditions of racehorses and the condition of the track.

3. Emerging technologies in the horse racing industry

Advancements in the horse racing industry are here to stay because more innovations are still emerging. Several emerging technologies would disrupt the racing sports industry, indirectly affecting the sports betting industry in Canada as well. For example, some scientists developed titanium 3D printed shoes used to successfully be worn on racehorses. Although this particular landmark in the industry might take some time before it becomes a trend, it’s indicative of the fact that more disruptive innovations are bound to surface in the horse racing sports.

Among the emerging technological innovations to expect in the horse racing industry is how racehorses are bred. Scientists are now more interested in the horse breeding process because there is a general belief that some set of racehorses born at certain times of the year perform better than others.

Lastly, there is this emerging innovative Blockchain technology that is disrupting all fields of human endeavors. With this innovation, data from the horse racing industry would become more transparent, safe, and secure. Horse breeders can use the technology to track their horses’ effortless track records and the transfer of such data to interested third-parties such as trainers and equine companies.

Published

on

Loading...

A new App dubbed “Haraka Haraka” has today been unveiled in Kenya to help customers find the right service providers in their current location within a specified range of choice.

The platform was invented by three former Meru University of Science and technology students and with the app, they seek to make it easier for people to find services such as a plumber, retailers, shops and house agents that have been difficult to get physically.

The team, Mr Kelvin Muinde, Mr Pius Momanyi Nyachio and Mrs Naum Mutie said there are currently about 3,500 users who are potential clients and service providers on the platform who include carpenters, hairdressers, plumbers and mechanics, and more.

“We are taking away the burden of searching for experienced and reliable professional businesses in a hassle-free model to deliver critical services to individuals who are in need of their specific location,” said Pius Momanyi Nyachio who is the Marketing Manager.

Mr Kelvin Muinde, who is the head of the project said the idea to start Haraka Haraka was initiated out of his observance of people having difficulty in finding a reliable service in an area that they are not well conversant with.

“The biggest challenge customers face is finding the right service providers at any area, mostly if you are not familiar, most people end up getting poor services that cost them time and resources,” he said.

To find any service or to register as a service provider, individuals are requested to first download the Haraka Haraka App on Google and register where later one can choose a range between 100m to 30km to find the service they are in need of.

The app also comes with an option of reviewing and rating a service provider which acts as an advantage to next service seekers enabling easy referrals to new clients.

‘’The registration to the app is free for both users and professionals,’’ said Mr Kelvin Muinde. The company’s aim is to hit 10,000 users by the end of this year. Ideally, they plan to have a maximum of 30,000 professionals on the platform.
