CEA-Leti and Corima have announced the development of a system of integrated sensors to measure the power of cyclists during pedalling.
There are a number of ways to measure this essential parameter for regular cyclists who typically use sensors attached to the pedals or the rear wheel hub. The compact, ultralight power sensor developed as part of this collaboration will be less cumbersome, more accurate and easier to integrate on the rear wheel, and it will also provide reliable data regardless of the weather or type of road.
"Corima has always worked with cycling professionals and understands their needs for quality equipment, and increasingly, in communicating objects,"said Pierre-Jean Martin, Corima's General Manager. This power sensor developed by the Leti and integrated on our carbon wheels has been manufactured for champions and enhances the standard measurement of power on pedal. »
This project brings together CEA-Leti's expertise in electronics, signal processing and wireless communication to enable real-time transmission of information about the pedaling power of cyclists through the Internet of Things. Corima, on the other hand, is well versed in modeling the distribution of efforts in the wheel.
This project is part of Leti's development and prototyping platform to help SMEs improve products in traditional sectors and develop competitive advantages by integrating sensors and communication systems into their products. It is funded by the Easytech program of the Nanoelec Institute for Technological Research.
"Leti's strengths in microelectronics and sensors are behind versatile devices with many potential uses and we are constantly looking for partners that offer new applications,"said Laurent Malier, Leti's Director. In its collaboration with Corima, our team was able to innovate and use the power sensors built into Corima's carbon wheels and thus apply Leti technology in a new field while supporting the movement.
