In this post I want to take a look at the relation between “force curves” and boat acceleration. I will also touch on the topic of the mystical drive hump and demonstrate where it comes from. To begin with, let us freshen up on some basic relations between forces, acceleration and speed. When a force is applied to an object, the
Improvements to the Apps This release marks the introduction of the Rowing in Motion Solo App. Please see the Solo App announcement for more details. Besides that, we’ve worked on some very interesting updates as well. Changelist Logfile Uploads now show upload progress Improved accuracy stroke detection algorithm when used in conditions with stronger vibrations Improved auto-scaling behavior of
With a new rowing season ahead in the northern hemisphere, we are gearing up for some significant changes in our product lineup. While we are busily working on our upcoming Sensorbox and wireless Sensorgate, we also made some important changes to the Apps and Analytics. Until now we had a single App for Android and iOS that supported
Great demonstration for how the system works in real life, the Coach’s view of the data from our Sensorbox. And you can get an impression of the large range that the built-in WiFi supports.
In the last part of this series, I discussed the challenges in measuring boat speed and their implications for designing a good boat speed sensor for use in rowing. In this part I want to take a look at what other types of measurements are useful for evaluating rowing performance beyond individual power production and boat speed. Furthermore, I
It’s been a while since my last post about the upcoming rowing telemetry system that we’re working on, where I talked about the intricacies of measuring individual rower force or power production at the oar. We have actually been very busy building said system in the past few months and that’s why there was little time for blogging 🙂 Measurement of individual performance is very
