This Is The Future of Cricket Formed By Intel


Cricket, it’s intense strategy, technique, athletic skill and today Cricket is one of the world’s most popular sports, attracting billions of fans. As it requires a more pointed decision in real-time.

Intel develops an innovative system, recognizing real-time data sets to analyze the action. The “the first smart cricket tournament” is the 2017 International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy, played in the U.K. June 1-18.

Eight top cricketing countries – India, Australia,  England, South Africa, New Zealand, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka – compete for over 18 days across three venues. Popular throughout the Commonwealth of Nations (formerly called the British Commonwealth), cricket inspires religious devotion among fans.

Intel extends the thrill and science of cricket simulated in virtual reality (VR).

For the first time, cricket fans will experience bat swing data live during matches and dive deeper into details about a successful hit.

The ICC named Intel an “Innovation Partner” in April

Intel is deploying advanced data analytics to sports, revolutionizing how athletes train, coaches teach, scouts evaluate talent and fans enjoy sports.

Digital technologies of Intel offers 360-degree replay experiences and new athlete performance data.

This year, the National Football League (NFL), National Basketball League (NBA), the National Collegiate Athlete Association (NCAA) and Professional Golf Association (PGA) turned to new viewing experiences from Intel freeD camera technology or Intel True VR to immerse fans with new visual perspectives.

Building upon athlete data-capture and tracking technologies. Those are used at the 2016 Winter X Games and Red Bull X-Fighters. Intel designed the cricket bat sensor.cricket bat sensorThe ICC Champions Trophy tournament will also feature Intel’s drone-assisted mapping system that captures field condition data and in-stadium VR technologies that let fans bat in a life-like cricket match.

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 weighs less than 25 grams or less than an ounce.

The 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.

Making of the Cricket bat sensor

Here are some photos how they revolutionize the bat sensor with ultra wideband wireless technology, supporting with the intents of Bluetooth technology and Android Operating System.


This technology is opening up new possibilities in the sports world.
