A key feature in all popular sporting events is the display of information to the spectator on a scoreboard. Recent developments in scoreboard technology have led to cheaper and more reliable scoreboards. Rowing is a sport that is slowly growing in popularity, but to date, has gained little following as a spectator sport. In this research, a cost-effective scoreboard is being developed for rowing events using global positioning system (GPS) technology. This system involves timed sensors to transmit data from GPS transmitters to a computer system that provides input to a scoreboard. The scoreboard has been completely designed by to provide information that will enhance the spectators’ appreciation for the sport. The study provides some background in the design of scoreboards and application of GPS technology, as well as specific details in the design of a prototype rowing scoreboard
