New Zealand Students Develop Pocket Referee Software for Pocket PC
A pocket referee designed by two Computer Software Engineering students at The University of Auckland will take the pain out of analysing soccer matches.

Ninos Yacoub and Aiman Alsari from the Faculty of Engineering, have designed a Pocket Referee's Assistant capable of recording goals, yellow and red cards, cautions and substitutions on a Windows Mobile Pocket PC.

This information can be sent to a desktop PC, for automatic collation and production of a match report.

The Pocket Referee's Assistant is a tailor-made software for use on a mobile device, allowing referees to record statistics during a match. The software is a world first, eliminating the need to manually record soccer statistics. It is aimed at both amateur and professional level.

Prior to a match, the referee loads game details onto the handheld device. Player names, numbers and positions are then immediately available during the game at the touch of a button.

Ninos and Aiman's project is a complex programming exercise, requiring the creation of software for both Pocket PCs and desktop PCs.

The pair's initial research showed nothing like the Pocket PC Referee is currently being used on the soccer field. Other versions were for use on much larger devices, were not as efficient or had fewer functions.

A prototype of the programme is almost complete and will be trialled at Manurewa Soccer Club later this year.
