- Trakus is a wireless radio frequency tracking system.
- Trakus employs a proprietary processing technique called
multi-lateration (U.S. Patent No. 6,204,813).
- Trakus uses small radio antennas situated around the track
perimeter and ultra-lightweight tags fit into the saddlecloths.
- Horses are tracked during pre-race parade through the
entire live race including the post-race cool down.
- Horses are tracked on and off the racetrack surface(s).
- Trakus has been shown to be accurate, reliable, and
consistent with existing techniques for timing and scoring.
- Trakus does not employ GPS or satellite technology, and does
offer better accuracy and near-instantaneous latency.
- Trakus does not use wires below the track surface to detect
the proximity or timing of horses.
- Trakus does not employ RFID or UWB, nor does it use any
secondary sensors, such as video processing, infrared, inertial
instruments, or other techniques.
- Trakus does not use post processing algorithms to determine
horse location; results are instantaneously available.
