Abstract This project is written by two students, Gisli Ragnarsson and Halil Ceylan, at Ingeniørhøjskolen i København/ Copenhagen University College of engineering (IHK/CUCE) in the spring of 2011 for their bachelor project. The project is written for Niels Koefoed Future Technologies, and is supervised by Niels Koefoed,
The aim for this project is to design a system, which measures and displays some information related to the exercise session of a user. The information displayed should be relevant and helpful to improve the running style, sprinting speed or injury recovery etc of the user, as well as giving a sense of entertainment, which will improve the motivation for running.
Some examples of use for the product could be:
The product may help a long distance runner to find an optimal balance for his/her running speed, or rate of steps per second, so the energy can be budgeted for best performance.
A sprinter may want to find the optimal equilibrium for how to kick off from the ground in a sprint, without putting too much strain on certain muscles or joints, which may cause injury.
An injured athlete may want to correct the cause for the injury, which could be a faulty running style or foot position, and uses the product to correct this.
A non-athletic person may want to take up running, and is entertained by profiling his running sessions and seeing a slight improvement for each time, making exercise more fun.
Many more scenarios could be imagined with other uses, all revolving around running. To make this product, it will be necessary to evaluate and choose which kinds of hardware can be used for the different tasks, and construct a device which solves a range of these tasks. Examples of this could be: Number of steps taken, distance covered, energy burned, weight distribution of each foot etc. Once the data is gathered and processed, it should be possible to view it in real time, while running.
We would like to thank Niels Koefoed for taking time each week for our meetings, and guiding us to develop a product which we feel we can be proud of.
