Application domain: Manufacturing

Budget (EUR): UP TO 15000

Project description

A cycling training system is equipped with magnetic resistance unit which provides a smooth and progressive resistance, simulating both flat terrain and slopes. Resistance levels can be selected through an easy to use and ergonomic sliding switch on the roller.
A calculation of torque from wheel speed measurement is required in order to provide detailed information to the user about power consumption.

Project goal

Having all the mechanical data of the system and the "almost" instantaneous speed of the roller (of Indoor trainer) find an algorithm to calculate the instantaneous torque / power developed by the rider.
