Now our route profiles are perfect

By ebikemotion 5 years agoNo Comments

The new service that works in side server is based in a complex algorithm that corrects all altimetry data of a route using our global cartographic data base that contains accurate information on the altitude of each point. This function virtually does not support any solution in the market or has to be paid, is offered for free in ebikemotion® APP being accessible from the user control panel in

The software development team of ebikemotion® centralized in the BISITE Research Center at the University of Salamanca just finished implementing a Beta of our new altimetry services, using a truly innovative system on the market that we to explain to you bellow.

GPS information, the problem

The biggest problem that users encounter when follow a route in relation to altitude, is that the GPS information is unreliable and even the same or different mobile devices running the same application provide different values. These values are already determined by the operating system of the phone and change depending on the sensors that incorporate the phone, as barometric sensors, etc. Most applications are read and represented on screen, but as we shall see in a displacement of 10 meters can obtain heights of +10 or -10 meters, something that is impossible in the real live when you are riding with your bike.

So, the same route with two phones made by the same individual user data could offer total ascent completely different between the two terminals and what is worse, in the detail of the tour we will see fluctuations in the unevenness of up to 20 or 30 meters. So if we need to use that data to know for example profile altimetry of a mountain or a climb, the reality is that the graph we would get would not be linear and when we approached to detail, we would see our chart climb becomes a constant up and down.


The ebikemotion® solution

This problem can be corrected in a low level in the mobile phone, but the result will never be good, because we will need Internet Connection and a lot of DATA. If we need such data and then analyze the route or do it again using our outstanding viewer (version 2.0 APP), the information will get will be almost un-useful. So we have implemented a complex algorithm on the server that validates all the information and thereafter, corrects all outstanding and accumulated altitude. With that information we will have a route profile, perfect and real, and what is even better, when the user uses our new feature route profiles, you’ll know in a REAL climb the slope, and the future tranches will have to go through in blocks of 50 meters. Something that so far no application ebikemotion® stand and provides a preview.

When you finish a route and save it, we will check your Internet connection. If you are online we will send data to validate by our system for our (IAS) Internet Altitude Services in order to create the perfect profile to be used by other APP users. If the track has been validated by our IAS, you and the rest of user that could be able to see the track could be able to see one special icon to inform that the routed is corrected.

EUROBIKE is coming and you will be able to see there our world premiere in our booth, when we will show the iOS APP and the version 2.0 of our hardware and software platform many other functions shall be disclosed. Some examples will be our new displays family for e-bike or the new joystick iWoc® wired with CAN BUS inside specific to e-bikes, which does not require the base IWOC-One®.
