Careful management of the per class and overall data was required to ensure that we were able to send data into the system at lightning speed to keep as close to realtime results as possible. With the 4 panel mounted scoreboard users can track their stats against others in the class, as well as view the instructor level information such as sprints and standard cycling.
The instructor can manage all of the class from a single Web App housed on a mounted tablet on their bike. The App allows for general class management to view who is sitting on which bike to stopping and starting of classes, setting sprints – which will automatically set all of the iPods on the bikes into ‘Sprint Mode’, and general session management.
All of the class data is housed on a rock-solid server setup to allow users to go back outside of classes and view their session data for progress tracking.
