In a technical sport such as cricket, mastering the bat demands extreme skill and dedication. Although cricket is one of the world’s most popular sports, when it comes to enhancing player skills, batting players still bank on their personal experiences and assumption on the shots they have played to generate skill improvements.
Every day, in alleys, academies, maidens and ovals across the cricketing world, millions of balls are bowled. The return shots are played and very few will be captured and turned into data that can help enhance the skills of the player. For a sport that is so highly technical in nature, technology solutions are few and far between.
At the end of a practice session, cricketers reflect on their performance and how well they played and will distil the speculation down to a ‘gut feeling’ and self-certify, with no discernible accuracy, no real data and no real analysis, unless they are a first-class player.
BATSENSE is a technology which securely fits on the bat and connects with smartphones. BATSENSE is born out of an idea to gain powerful marginal gain insights into batting. Applied AI and built-in Machine Learning have been used to develop this powerful chip, and was tailor-made to create a smart device and which is capable of capturing the elements of a bat and its movements.
We're raising funds for manufacturing, further product innovation & marketing.
