The sport, similar to horse racing, is an event for betting and is also a tourist attraction. But despite the sport’s popularity, Saeed Alnofeli, a Master’s student from the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology believes that there are some aspects of the sport that need improvement.

“I found some challenges in the camel racing industry, including a poor understanding of the camel’s health and how to improve camels’ racing performance, which is what motivated my research,” Alnofeli said.

By incorporating the latest technological advances in computer science and signal processing in his research, Alnofeli was able to create a camel monitoring system.

Knowing the potential commercial applications of Alnofeli’s innovation, Masdar Institute has filed a provisional patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for the innovative camel monitoring system.

This invention was based on Alnofeli’s thesis research entitled “Customer Driven Product Development Process for Camel Monitoring System.” The research focuses on optimizing monitoring systems for camel training, which can help improve camel training and racing.
