Rouvy’s unique platform is based on user-generated training content. Users can easily create and share a GPS-synced video route within only hours. The app enables riders to bike the planet indoors over its available 2,000+ geo-located video routes. “We have a vision of bringing indoor cycling to any road on the planet by mixing real-life video routes with augmented reality,” says Petr Samek, one of Rouvy’s founders and CEO. “Our app allows cyclists and triathletes from all over the world to virtually come together on a real road by generating and processing animated 3D riders in real 2D videos. From now on, you will be able to see diverse, realistic-looking objects and riders on Tour de France roads, Italian iconic climbs or any route which is based on GPS and real video data. We are proud to be the first to make such a solution widely available with almost every smart trainer officially supported.”
Rouvy ensures a precise simulation of outdoor cycling, brought indoors by using advanced algorithms to smooth, sync and process both video and elevation profiles. New features include Animated 3D objects in any 2D video course, Group Rides and Virtual Partners based on big data. Yuriy Ryashko, Marketing Executive, adds, “Augmented Routes are a glimpse of the future. To start, we have made 10 real-life routes available. Just as it is now possible to ride any course on the trainer with absolutely realistic resistance by GPS points and map, so, in the future, you will be able to prepare for any race and compete over the real video. Our new AR turns any course video-footage into a virtual bike race, but it’s 100% realistic.“
The new concept aims to provide users with enhanced levels of diversity, interactivity, fun and competition. To ensure the best and flawless user experience, the new engine will be updated on a weekly basis. Rouvy’s augmented reality and the schedule of group rides are currently available for all on https://rouvy.com.
