The FOB, meant to be a GPS tracking device in the shape of a wrist band, has to be worn by each particular person in the IPL ecosystem always. It works on Bluetooth and a receiver – a cell app known as ‘bio-bubble’ – obtains information from the device to track the movement of any particular person sporting it.
That device has come in for extreme criticism as franchises say “it is not tracking any movement whatsoever”.
“A franchise travelled from one city to another. It asked for the movement data. The company sent the data of the city where the franchise was based before the trip. The FOB did not even register that the franchise had travelled to another city.”
Apparently, the device ran out of battery and had to be changed!
