Title: USING REMOTELY DETECTED WIND VELOCITIES TO ENHANCE UNDERSTANDING OF AN IMPENDING OR OCCURRING EVENT
Abstract:
Methods and systems for using laser Doppler velocimeters to determine and use wind velocities at the locations of impending and occurring events such as sports events are presented. Laser Doppler velocimeters are used to determine wind velocities where an event is occurring or an impending event is about to occur. The determined wind velocities are used to generate and display a representation of the impending or occurring event that accounts for the effect of the determined wind velocities on the impending or occurring event.
