The client is a major sports brand that wanted to enhance its customers’ surfing experience. This company needed development and integration expertise to explore extra usage options for its advanced wearable technology.
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.
The app consists of several modules:
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.
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.
The project was delivered on time and on budget demonstrating the solution’s feasibility and potential use cases. The Softeq team once again proved its mobile application development expertise by providing complete technological realization of the desired user features.
