1. A system for tracking position of a moving transmission source, the system comprising:
a first transmission source configured to transmit a first signal while moving from a first position to a first expected position;
a receiver configured to receive the transmitted first signal;
an audio source configured to transmit an audio signal at a predetermined frequency; and
a controller configured to electronically couple with the receiver;
wherein the controller is further configured to:
determine a second position of the first transmission source in a field based on the received first signal;
calculate a first location offset between the second position of the first transmission source with the first expected position of the first transmission source, the first expected position stored in a first data repository;
compare the first location offset with a predetermined threshold;
calculate a first rate of movement of the first transmission source from the first position to the second position of the first transmission source, wherein the first rate of movement is calculated based on a distance traveled between the first position and the second position of the first transmission source with respect to the predetermined frequency; and
transmit a first indication to at least one user device based on the comparison of the first location offset with the predetermined threshold, wherein the first indication comprises the calculated first rate of movement.
