An Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign has gone live quite recently for Absolute Cycling One. This is a cycling PC that can follow individuals’ location continuously with an exactness within 2 meters – even in the wake of losing a satellite connection!
The device originates from a Dutch-based outfit called Absolute Cycling. The thing utilizes something called Absolute Positioning Technology to accomplish such high exactness.
Normal cycling PCs tap into GPS, Glonass, Galileo and other satellite situating systems (GNSS) once every second. While this is fine and good, exactness will in general endure in case people are riding through harsh conditions, for example, a dense forest or a tunnel. Signal quality endures on the grounds that the PC should be in visible contact with the sky so as to guarantee precision.
Absolute Cycling One uses something called Absolute Positioning Technology (APT). This consolidates GNSS with sensors inside the bike to follow individuals’ position all the more frequently and all the more precisely. Indeed, the thing checks their location 20 times per second, which compares to 20 times more than their run-of-the-mill cycling PC.
This sort of precision likewise makes it valuable when people are riding at high speeds as the margin of error stays within 2 meters. APT even works for short periods of time subsequent to losing satellite connection by using the algorithm to keep calculating individuals’ position utilizing accessible sensors. The organization says, no external speed sensors are required.
The cycling PC accompanies a lovely and streamlined plan. There’s a 3 inch full-shading screen on-board which you can use to see your information, designs and exclusively rendered maps.
An ultra-low power processor inside guarantees the device has enough power for even the longest of rides. On a full charge Absolute Cycling One will run for around 20 hours.
The outfit says they hope to convey the first 100 Absolute Cycling One PCs by Christmas this year. In March 2020 the cycling PC will go on general sale. Taking an interest in the Indiegogo campaign will get people an early-bird discount.
