AeroLab’s high-speed data acquisition and data processing provides unparalleled accuracy, enabling athletes and engineers to gain a better understanding of the environmental conditions and their influence on aerodynamics.
AeroLab technology processes over 5000 points every second in order to provide real-time measurements of:
- aerodynamic drag,
- coefficient of drag area (CdA),
- coefficient of rolling resistance (Crr),
- wind speed,
- wind yaw angle,
- wind gusts/acceleration,
- drivetrain loss estimations and more.
Cutting-edge proprietary algorithms adjust to rider behaviour and adapt to changing environmental conditions, including road surface, body position, rider weight, wind direction & speed, and more.
The self-contained system is compact, water resistant and automatically connects to your mobile device. All data is captured and saved for download & future use by athletes, coaches, and engineers. From changing road surface conditions, to dynamic movement of the rider, from power losses during climbs and descents to power gains of drafting, there is limitless potential for the end user.
AeroLab’s Patented Technology
AeroLab’s aerodynamic sensor enables coaches and riders to make critical decisions for optimizing performance:
- Which equipment is best suited for a given race?
- What tires and pressure are best for a set of wheels?
- Will a disc wheel really be faster?
- Why am I slower on the second half of my race but my power was higher?
The aerodynamic performance of frames, wheels, helmets and other equipment changes are rider-dependant and can vary significantly in different environmental conditions. It is a commonly accepted statistic that a rider comprises 75-90% of the resistance experienced. AeroLab’s sensor can be used to test and log changes to your equipment and body position. Let our algorithms run race course simulations and determine the best combination of equipment to use on race day.
AeroLab is currently working with athletes and coaches to convert the sensor to be user-friendly without sacrificing accuracy. The same data currently being provided to industry-leading designers and manufacturers will soon be helping you be the best rider you can possibly be.
In the first week of March we will be showcasing our technology and product to the North/South American & European markets during 2 virtual events, each with open question & answer periods.
In the sixth episode of our Tech Talk series, AeroLab co-founders Chris Morton & Kelly Zwarych discuss how computational fluid dynamics models, wind tunnel measurement & analysis, and real-world testing can complement each other to achieve peak aerodynamic performance.
