While the Mumbai Indians retired to their dressing room exhilarated after a nail-biter of a match at the finals of IPL 2017, people will continue to talk and analyse the teams’ bowling and batting strengths. No doubt the supporters of the opposing team, Rising Pune Supergiants, will wonder where they went wrong.
Away from the limelight and the fireworks, a group of young men quietly pouring over tons of data to perfect a technology may well have some answers. They hope their technology can help cricket bowlers improve their game. The young IoT startup called SeeHow is developing a smart cricket ball and mobile app to help bowlers in coaching.
The ball contains a sensing system that detects information about the ball’s motion, spin on the ball, impact on the pitch, the position of the seam, and drift in the air. It also provides analytics of all the accumulated data.
The startup is being incubated at the Centre of Excellence for IoT in India (CoE-IoT) at the 10,000 Startups, Nasscom Warehouse, in Bengaluru.
Set up in 2015 as part of the government’s Digital India programme, the CoE-IoT was conceived by the Ministry of Electronics & IT (DeitY) and Education and Research Network (ERNET) in association with Nasscom. It was inaugurated last year and at present has around 20-22 startups, including SeeHow, being incubated here.
