Inspired by a love for bicycling we wanted to create a way to make pedaling easier and more efficient.
What it does
Go Shift measures your cadence, that is how fast you're pedaling, and tells you when to shift gears and in which direction for an optimal speed to force ratio. Go Shift works like an automatic transmission by choosing the best gear for your current speed.
How we built it
We use an Arduino, a vibration sensor, an LCD display, and some math to calculate the revolutions per minute.
What's next for Go Shift!
In the future Go Shift can be a complete automatic bicycle that shifts your bike for you while you pedal so you are always getting the best efficiency while you bike.
We hope you enjoy Go Shift and remember to bike smarter.
