RIDE-1’s built in communication features include ANT+, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, in addition to various sensors such as GPS. Unlike traditional cycle computers that only record running data attached to a bicycle, the characteristics of RIDE-1 allow riding data to be shared and analyzed by linking with smartphones and the cloud.
Recording Riding Data
RIDE-1 features a 9 axis sensor, temperature, atmospheric pressure and brightness sensors as well as GPS. In addition to basic information such as riding route location and velocity, frame status such as lean and impact can be recorded by the main unit. When combined with a smartphone using Bluetooth, the riding log history can be viewed in real time turning your smartphone into a cycling computer.
Live Telemetry Function
Using the 3G/LTE connection on your smartphone, you can share riding data in real time via the cloud. RIDE-1 is not only useful for informing family and friends of your location while riding, but also can record and make available body data such as the position of riders running, heart rate and power value to the accompanying support car or technical pit crew. Advanced bicycle riders can use the real time telemetry data to get feedback on their performance and progress.
It is possible to group registration of multiple RIDE-1 devices and view live telemetry from multiple riders. During cycling with a riding group, team mates or friends, you can check in real time information about your group's current progress. You can also use the RIDE-1 group function to check current location on the way to a meeting place.
RIDE-1 supports ANT+ technology, which is broadly used as a wireless connection for bicycle devices and is a standard for fitness devices, Bluetooth is also available to communicate with other devices and services. Data on third-party sensors that are compatible with ANT+ can be imported into RIDE-1 (*1) and recorded and viewed on the cloud through RIDE-1. In addition, users can operate devices which support ANT+ by using RIDE-1, for example, automatically turning on an ANT+ compatible light when it gets dark.(*2)
* 1. Factors such as speed, cadence and heart-rate are supported at release. In the future, power meters will be supported.
* 2. Will be supported in a future update.
Data Management in the Cloud
RIDE-1 has built-in IEEE 802.11b/g/n wireless LAN connectivity. You can connect to the Internet via wireless LAN and upload data saved on RIDE-1 to a dedicated web service provided by Cerevo. After uploading, data can be viewed on either a PC or smartphone using a web browser, or on the companion smartphone application, making it possible to look back on past riding data and analyze it.
Cerevo plans to offer multiple resources for third-party developers with open source licenses such as the 3D CAD data of RIDE-1 and Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity specifications. An API is also planned, which can be used for exporting RIDE-1 data and incorporating it into other applications.
