Embedded system as training partner: Fitness according to your personal plan
In innovative systems the function of the trainer is taken over by a computer. Elektrosil developed a hardware solution which is used in fitness studios and medical rehab units.
The customer needed a touch panel PC for mounting on high-end fitness equipment for his sports science training programme. The systems were to control exercises and document their progress – individually via identification using RFID card readers. A computer with a customised carrier board, display control, interfaces for USB and special sensors as well as a suitable operating system was required. The objective was to implement the system until it was ready for the market while adhering to a tight schedule.
- Client: A provider of intelligent training software
- Project size: > 2,000 units per year, duration > 5 years
- Sector: Industry
- Product area: Embedded Systems, System Solutions
- Services: Carrier board development, display control and interfaces, operating system development, development consulting, assembly production embedded PC incl. touch panel, just-in-time storage
The developers at Elektrosil designed a new, densely packed hardware solution consisting of a display, resistive touch and carrier board with a separate CPU module. The force and laser sensors for the trainee’s movement parameters were connected to the rear of the PC by means of a special module. The Elektrosil team developed the operating system together with a partner company and adapted it to the device. In addition, the electromagnetic compatibility was optimised in accordance with medical guidelines.
With a great deal of experience, the developers combined selected components and newly designed parts to create a customised embedded system solution. This innovation convinces in the competitive environment and offers optimal training conditions for end users. This solution is even used by national football leagues.
The client was impressed by the quality of Elektrosil’s service and the flexibility of the deliveries. The follow-up order was also given to the developer team.
