Keeping An Eye On The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games

Eye on the Ice systems were used to monitor all 5 of the city competition venues (Canada Hockey Place, Vancouver Olympic Centre, Pacific Coliseum, Richmond Olympic Oval, and UBC Thunderbird Arena) at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games. Which hosted the following sports: curling, figure skating, ice hockey, short track speed skating, and speed skating.

The following is an excerpt from an article "Olympic Ice Making" from the vancouver2010.com website:

"To ensure the ice is in top shape for the 2010 Winter Games, ice meisters can monitor conditions 24/7 with a wireless environmental monitoring system called Eye on the Ice. Monitors detect temperature, humidity, air pressure, brine or ammonia flow, and ice conditions and send reports via e-mail to the ice meisters at regular intervals. The monitors, which are set in the ice and around the venues, can also send out alarms if conditions reach unacceptable levels. This stream of information allows the ice maker to manipulate the venue conditions and optimize the ice surface."
