Idea: Tracking your MTB skills

Usual fitness metrics for bicycling do not track all necessary information to benchmark mountain bike rides.

Analyze IMU/location sensor data to

  • detect terrain, stairs, uphill, downhill
  • grade terrain difficulty
  • compare skills and fitness level based on segments based on speed and IMU data

Develop a smartphone independent device for collect IMU and location data

  • Development may be based on Nordic Thingy or Arduino Nano 33 BLE Sense
  • Develop a Bluetooth generic attribute profile

Develop a contact less distance measuring device for damper activity

So far, sensors for the measurement of the damper activities are very expensive and unhandy. The use of an optical sensor could provide a cheap and wear-free alternative.
