Problem

The customer turned to Softeq to create a proof-of-concept (PoC) surfing app. The solution would allow surfers to track and analyze their performance. The app had to sync data online, visualize the user’s surf route, and share results with other apps.

Solution

Proof-of-concept-Mobile-Sports-App

The app consists of several modules:

  • Synchronization module. Enables raw data download (e.g. route coordinates, accelerometer data, etc.) from the server.
  • Graphical representation module. Implements map drawing of the surfer's route in real time.
  • Sharing module. Allows sharing results (routes) with the user’s friends.

Besides the GPS and accelerometer data, the application also processes such information as burned calories count, track distance, session duration, start and stop time of the session, etc.

Challenge

To realize the capability of drawing the surfer’s route over the map, the team implemented an algorithm for approximating the path coordinates taking into account possible changes to the map properties such as scale, rotation angle, and its position during the runtime. All calculations had to be performed fast to prevent application freezes.
