Pitch Vision – Better Vision Better Cricket
When it comes to sports and technology we have come a long way. With the need for precise decisions, motion sensing to sequential relaying of the technique used by a player to analyzing the details the implementation of high-end technology has been mind-blowing.
Let us take ‘Pitch Vision’ technology for instance. The particular system was developed by misport (who also developed a smartphone app by the same name) and as the self-explanatory name says it all the tool uses motion-sensing technology to ascertain visual elements on the pitch. These include Pitch-maps Stumps, 3D Trajectory, Front foot crease position, Line, Length, Deviation, Bounce, Pace measurements and Video Analysis on a laptop or a dedicated computer. Depends how big the league match is.
The camera is mounted on the wicket from where it can have a full sensory perception in almost a 45 degree to an extended vision through motion sensing equipment installed for the same. The technology is almost the same as used by airports/airfields for emergency landings using IR motion sensing techniques.
Wherever IR and Sound/Motion sensing comes in, the technology is both used in sports and warfare. Not exactly in that order. After all sports matches are no less lethal in competition.
The system is popularly used in cricket training and is the choicest of tools for both players and coaches. It can be set up in a few minutes and starts off instantly.
The company that manufactures PV (Pitch Vision) as mentioned earlier also has Android and iPhone applications for users to enjoy real-time pitch vision in literal terms.
The latest technology makes the PV even more compact and cheaper for end users and professionals to take full advantage of its capabilities.
