Collaborative Sport

Real-time analytics for collaboration in endurance sports


Endurance sports such as cycling hold many benefits for physical and mental well-being. In cycling in particular, collaboration is an essential component of many athletes’ training. Current technology does not support real-time analytics for collaboration, so cyclists operate on limited information about their collaborators. This project is investigating the ways in which real-time data can support cyclists in collaborating to meet their training goals. The same technology can support both athletes and casual cyclists in understanding the needs and exertion of their riding partners.
