Ball Tracker for Sports Analysis

Project Description


Develop a system that can use a recorded video stream of a ball bowled, as input, and then analyze the delivery. The system is to be used in a cricket practice environment. The system should use cameras situated around the cricket nets, where bowling practice takes place, to track and trace the path of the ball. The tracking of the ball should preferably be from when the ball was released from the bowler's hand right up until it comes to a complete stop. The output should be the path of the ball. The surrounding images are what possible outputs may look like
