What about home automation?
Target version of the project should be useful even when the screen is not attached. The idea was to process the data about every day training and prepare useful guides/statistics automatically saving the user time.
The project was build in a single day (I was abroad with no computer access most of the time of the Challenge), so it includes only a core functionality I wanted to implement. However, the description contains a lot of ideas how to improve it - so feel free to extend it. Finally, forgive my rush in preparing photos, diagrams, UI and especially - source code (I am Java programmer, it is hard to switch to C# in an hour).
Just a regular, stationary bicycle.
Raspberry Pi 2 with Windows 10 IoT installed. To begin with, follow excellent tutorials from Microsoft site:
The idea behind connection is based on two magnets located inside the bike. Each rotation causes magnets meet for a while - it can be treated as a click of a push button. RPi counts those clicks, processes the data and displays it in readable form.
- IMPROVE IT
- monitor day/week/month progress
- prepare training plans that suits current condition
- create some mini games where a bike is controller
