New Zealand beat India 3-2 at Four Nations Invitational hockey meet

first_imgIndia went down to New Zealand 2-3 in a hard fought encounter at the Four Nations Invitational hockey tournament in Melbourne on Saturday.For New Zealand, Nick Ross (47th minute), Jacob Smith (48th minute) and Hugo Inglis (57th minute) were the goal scorers while for India, Rupinder Pal Singh found the net in the 18th minute and 57th minute respectively.India will next play Malaysia for the third place on Sunday.Both teams started off on a positive note but it was India who dominated the first quarter by creating multiple circle penetrations. (Four Nations Hockey: India beat Malaysia 4-2 to register first win)Soon, New Zealand changed their strategy and started counter attacking and as a result Nick Ross came closest to the net by a reverse hit from the top of the box to the bottom corner.Akash Chikte was alert to the danger though, smartly saving to ensure the scores stayed level.India’s first opportunity came through a penalty corner (PC) but it was saved by the black sticks Captain Shea McAleese.India picked up the pace in the second quarter and started pressing high up the pitch every time they lost the ball.It paid dividends in the 18th minute, as Akashdeep Singh robbed New Zealand of the ball near the circle and drove in, only for the attack to be smothered by George Enersen.Off the rebound, Akashdeep struck a first time shot on goal, but the ball caught the foot of Kane Russell resulting in a stroke for India.advertisementRupinder Pal Singh made no mistake from the spot, dispatching the ball into the bottom left to give India the lead.India kept up the momentum after taking the lead. The goal meant New Zealand now had to come out of their shell and create the attacks and open up the game.The shift increased the influence of Sardar Singh in India’s midfield as he was afforded a lot of space to steer India’s game. The teams went into half time with India leading 1-0. (World Cup should be India’s next target, say hockey legends after Asian Champions Trophy triumph)In the third quarter, the teams went at each other with furious attacking intent, and again it was Chikte’s agility that prevented New Zealand from scoring an equaliser.A long cross field ball found Matt Rees-Gibbs at the far post and simple contact would’ve seen it sound the board.Chikte though dived at full stretch to block away the attempt and kept India in the lead. Nikkin Thimmaiah had an attempt from the top of the box, after a superb bit of improvisation, but saw his effort sail high. India led 1-0 going into the final break.In an action packed final quarter, New Zealand hit back with two quick goals, first via Nick Ross in the 47th minute, before Jacob Smith gave them the lead in the next minute.India now started creating attacking opportunities but New Zealand got a third via Hugo Inglis in the 57th minute.Rupinder Pal Singh pulled one back with a PC conversion but that was not enough to save the game.In the final minutes, India created several opportunities to draw level, but New Zealand held on for a 3-2 win.last_img read more

AIST group measures objects in 3D with camera projector w Video

first_imgvia Diginfo Sagawa foresees such a system as having use in research about using the body to control things like multimedia, virtual reality, and games. He also said that data obtained by this measurement method could be used to analyze how athletes move.” He can imagine the system being used to measure the movements of an athlete in the middle of a stadium, from a long way away, for example. If we can do that, we think this method would be great for making 3-D videos as well.”Actually, the possibilities may go beyond what they have already considered. “Currently, we’ve stopped at the stage of making measurements. But we’re also thinking about how to use the measured data. We’d like to work on applications to sports science and materials analysis.” Another possibility, as long as the patterns can be captured, is to apply the system to work with different devices, too. “We’d also like to keep increasing the range of things that can be measured.” Citation: AIST group measures objects in 3-D with camera, projector (w/ Video) (2012, August 16) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-08-aist-group-d-camera-projector.html The team says the value of their method is that it can provide more measurement positions than conventional motion capture, and can be used in scenarios where shapes have been difficult to measure because they change too fast. They also say that their method is precise, with a tolerance of just 1-2 mm. Ryusuku Sagawa, service Robotics Research Group, Intelligent Systems Research Institute at AIST, presided over the camera and projector demo. “If you look carefully, you can see that each line is wavy. The wavy line patterns are carefully designed, so the pattern from the projector can be recognized from the camera image. This makes it possible to use the projector and the camera for triangulation, so we can know the shape at that instant.” 1ms pan-tilt camera system tracks the flying balls (w/ Video) Explore furthercenter_img (Phys.org) — Got camera? Got projector? Then you can measure objects in 3-D. A group at the Advanced Industrial Science and Technology Institute (AIST) has had no problem doing that. The researchers have demonstrated their method for measuring objects in 3-D, using only a camera and projector. Patterned light is projected on to the object and pattern images captured by the camera are processed to measure its 3-D shape.
