Answer

Correct Option is It is an affordable, high-performing cricket bat being developed using computer modelling and optimization algorithms.

Researchers at Canada’s University of British Columbia are developing a high performing ‘Algobat’ using computer modelling and optimisation algorithms. The idea was to optimise the geometry of the bat, specifically the back profile in order to minimise the vibration caused by ball’s impact. Therefore, more energy would transfer to the ball and the ball would fly further. For this scientists used computer modelling of the bat and optimisation algorithms to maximise the performance of the cricket bat they have named Algobat. To ensure quality, the performance of the bats would be measured using computer simulations and be priced somewhere around USD 30-40. There might be some time before the bat actually makes it to the field. Scientists are planning to first test the prototype and compare its performance with high-end commercial bats.
