Submission + - Ask SD: Project Scope and Length for MLB Robot Ump

nightcats writes: "The League Championship Series (LCS) of baseball are upon us, and numerous sports media pundits, armies of fans at comment boards, and TV people are openly debating the possibility of robot umpires coming to the MLB, to either replace or enhance the human umps' work on the field. Question: what kind of project are we reasonably talking about here; what would the scope and length be from planning/design to user testing/implementation (presumably in a spring training/minor league setting)? What kinds of hardware (video scanners, touch-sensitive bases/foul lines, etc.) and software would be required?"
