Have you ever wondered why wheel sensors use magnets?

To measure speed from distance,... by wheel revolution,... with 360-degree precision or 7 feet (over 2 meters).

The new VeloComputer HUBTM sensor uses no magnets and measures distance with 1" inch (25 mm) precision.

This patent pending magnet-less technology eliminates a hassle adjusting the magnet on a spoke every time cyclists mounts the wheel. The new VeloComputer HUBTM sensor is practically invisible, almost weightless, and always on when you are on your bike.


Hi,

My name is Vlad Savchenko. I am a founder of SoundOfMotion - the creator of the VeloComputer Smart Sensors and mobile apps.

We invested 7 years in research and development before inventing this magnet-less sensors. After releasing 4 versions of high precision sensors in the past we've received valuable feedback. The new sensor requires no calibration, yet still delivers high precision measuring distance, spot speed and acceleration.

As you can see from the video we have a working prototype and are ready to go into production.

Will you join us in this wheel revolution?


What We Need

The funds we need to jump start this project will be used for:

  • FCC, IC, CE certification
  • Components for manufacturing


What You Get

Magnet-less sensor for your bike computer, watch or smartphone.

HUBTM sensor comes in 2 versions: Bluetooth Smart and ANT+

VeloComputer HUBTM Bluetooth Smart sensor features:

  • Supports standard Bluetooth Smart cycling speed profile for full wheel revolution - 360-degree precision or 7 feet (over 2 meters)
  • Works with iPhone and Android 4.3+ smartphones (application required)
  • Supports 1" inch precision for distance, speed and acceleration profiles (available in VeloComputer app on Android or iPhone)App Store Google Play
  • 300 hours of continuous use on a single coin cell CR2032 battery
    200 with high precision VeloComputer profile
  • Turns on automatically as soon as motion is detected
  • Turns off automatically when no phone is connected
  • No tools mount

VeloComputer HUBTM ANT+ sensor features:

  • Supports standard ANT+ cycling speed profile for full wheel revolution (360-degree precision)
  • Works with all ANT+ devices, like Garmin watches and bike computers
  • 300 hours of continuous use on a single coin cell CR2032 battery
  • Turns on automatically as soon as motion is detected
  • Turns off automatically when no device is connected
  • No tools mount


SEATTM
sensor for grade & cadence

In addition we introduce a SEATTM sensor to measure grade of a slope and cadence. It uses the same hardware as the HUBTM sensor, but has different firmware and profiles.

The grade of a road slope is measured in percentage.

The cadence is extracted from a lateral motion of the seat post when the cyclist is pedaling.

SEATTM sensor also comes in 2 versions: Bluetooth Smart and ANT+

VeloComputer SEATTM Bluetooth Smart sensor features:

  • Supports standard Bluetooth Smart cycling cadence and road grade profiles
  • Works with iPhone and Android 4.3+ smartphones
    (grade available in VeloComputer app on Android or iPhone)App Store Google Play
  • 300 hours of continuous use on a single coin cell CR2032 battery
    Turns on automatically as soon as lateral motion is detected
  • Turns off automatically when no phone is connected
  • No tools mount

VeloComputer SEATTM ANT+ sensor features:

  • Supports standard ANT+ cycling speed profile for full wheel revolution (360-degree precision)
  • Works with all ANT+ devices, like Garmin watches and bike computers
  • 300 hours of continuous use on a single coin cell CR2032 battery
  • Turns on automatically as soon as lateral motion is detected
  • Turns off automatically when no device is connected
  • No tools mount
