Rowing in Motion is an innovative measurement system for rowers and coaches. Our unique approach to a professional and accurate measurement tool paired with powerfull and easy to use iPhone and iPad Hardware allows us to deliver a cost-effective package to all those that seek to optimize their stroke and row faster.
Boat Acceleration. Move faster.
Boat acceleration is the direct result of the forces applied to the rowing boat at any moment in time. The change of boat acceleration over the stroke has a direct impact on boat speed. Rowing in Motion measures boat acceleration using a built-in accelerometer sensor at 100Hz (that’s 100 data points per second!) to give you the most detailed picture possible. Boat acceleration gives you a direct clue about the effectiveness of your stroke and allows you targeted improvements of your stroke. Learn more.
GPS. Know how you’re going.
We use the built-in GPS capabilities of your device to give you accurate position, speed and distance data. Rowing in Motion uses special algorithms to fuse GPS sensor data with other parameters that we have available, to give you the most accurate results possible. Using GPS to measure distances allows us to give you exact race and training reports. GPS is available on all iOS devices except the iPod Touch and WiFi only iPads. Learn more.
Live transmission. See what’s happening.
The Boat and Coach App allow configuration-less live data transmission over a WiFi connection.
Using WiFi technology, Rowing in Motion easily achieves stable real-time transmission for distances over 40m.
Rowing in Motion Videos. The best rowing video analysis.
Coaches love video analysis. Before Rowing in Motion, video analysis was the only advanced tool coaches could use in their daily training with reasonable effort and budget. Rowing in Motion takes up on this phillosophy and makes video analysis easier and even more useful. Using an iOS device recording a video is a snap and always just a single tap away. With the Rowing in Motion Coach App, we can record a video and directly embedd time-synchronized measurement data from the embed. And best of all – its HD quality and can be shared and replayed anywhere. Learn more.
Sonification. Rowing with all senses.
Rowing in Motion is the first tool to deliver sonification for rowers in a usable and affordable package. Sonification is a feedback mechanism that translates measured data into a sound instead of representing it visually. This allows athletes to acquire feedback acoustically, freeing them from the necessity of looking at a display. Again – no cables are required. Rowing in Motion Sonification can be used with any A2DP Bluetooth headset. Learn more.
Stokerate. Without cables.
Rowing in Motion derives stroke rate based on the typical boat acceleration cycle encountered in rowing. A special algorithm is used to reliably find beginning and end of a stroke. Rowing in Motion does not require any external sensors under the sliding seat. No wires, no installation, no hassle! And you can place it anywhere in the boat. Using acceleration to derive stroke rate has additional advantages. Because it doesn’t require a sensor under the sliding seat, Rowing in Motion can provide stroke rate data for athletes with disabilities in the AS discipline (Arms and Shoulders only).
Ease of use. On the water.
Rowing in Motion is the first measurement tool for rowers that doesn’t need baby-sitting. Installation is as easy as clipping it to your boat with a waterpoof case. Done. No Cables, no callibration, it’s all wireless, built-in and automagic. The intuitive user interface supports intelligent touch gestures that let you access all features with an easy swipe or tap.
The acceleration graph. Intelligent details.
The acceleration graph shows you stroke by stroke boat acceleration data. Additionaly, Rowing in Motion calculates typical stroke data to give you the best feedback possible
Race mode. No distractions .
Rowing in Motion has a special race mode that will show just a blank screen and recording status. This is useful if you don’t want to be distracted by Rowing in Motion to fully concentrate on your exercise or race, but still want to record data.
