Making a Cricket Bat Sensor | Intel – #Intel
Intel engineers used a coin-sized Intel Curie compute module – a wireless data processing hub with motion sensors and built in algorithms – to create a tiny puck that fits into a sleeve covering the bat handle. It debuted in “the first smart cricket tournament”: the 2017 International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy, played in the U.K. June 1-18. The tiny sensor measures eight classifications of a batter’s swing, including back lift angle, follow-through angle, impact angle, maximum bat speed, bat speed at impact, time to impact, and 3D swing and plane path. These measurements can be televised, so fans see more precisely a batter’s performance.
