The goal line technology has gone out to tender to companies that think they can produce the technology at a high accuracy, consistently.

Not only does the technology use video to determine the ball has crossed the line but also computer chips inside the ball. 

Wikipedia says it best:  “Goal-line technology is a method used to determine when the ball has completely crossed the goal line with the assistance of electronic devices and at the same time assisting the referee in calling a goal or not. The objective of goal-line technology (GLT) is not to replace the role of the officials, but rather to support them in their decision-making”.
