The tracking technology is the use of mobile cameras to capture video of the Olympic games, which will be used to create visual overlays, analysis, and the company has announced that it is in Tokyo, japan.
The Olympics ‘showcase’ will come as the once dominant chipmaker is looking for a new opportunity in the middle of a forecast of modest profit growth over the next three years as its share of the market for personal computer chips, to be released.
“This is really a good chance for us to make the presentation of the first microprocessor, the technology that we have developed for many years, but the majority of our work is in the software, the algorithms, as well as broadcasts to enhance the experience,” Rick Echevarria, general manager of the Intel in the Olympic Program, said at an event attended by members of the Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee.
Intel said it would also use virtual reality to recreate the images from the sites in order to assist in the training of the staff. To Live and virtual transmissions would have to keep track of the events, and boxing, and beach volleyball as well as the opening and closing ceremonies.
Intel said the chips could also be used in facial recognition systems, tracking of up to 300,000 people, including athletes, volunteers, journalists and staff members of the access to and from the Olympic venues.
The company will also host a four-day esports gaming tournament in Tokyo, just in time for the Olympic opening, with a total prize pool of $500,000.

Esports, which often pack a sports stadium and attracting a huge online audience, you should still be considered to be a long, long way from becoming an official part of the Olympics, but the international olympic committee is to keep an open mind, to the great annoyance of some of the olympic athletes.
Esports are set to be a full medal event at the Asian Games in Beijing in 2022.
