Rouvy presents a new concept of indoor cycling races based on augmented reality

Rouvy’s unique indoor cycling platform is designed 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 different, realistic-looking objects and riders on Tour de France roads, well known Alpine passes or any route which is based on GPS and real video data.” 

New features enhance Animated 3D objects in any 2D video, Realistic Real-Time Races, Unprecedented User Experience and Virtual Partners based on Big Data.  

Samek continues, “Rouvy ensures a precise simulation of outdoor cycling brought indoors by using advanced algorithms to sync both video and elevation profile. To significantly improve the elevation profile, based on camera angle tracking, took 2 years of development and many years of university research. Additionally, tons of available second-by-second individual user data are to be utilized for instant augmented simulation and replay. Any chosen records can be your interactive virtual competitors in the time trial or group training modes.”   

The new concept provides users with enhanced levels of diversity, interactivity, fun and competition. Cycling enthusiasts of all levels are sure to enjoy the realistic experience of riding outdoors from the comfort of their homes - anytime and ANYWHERE.

Rouvy’s new augmented reality will be in private beta for 2 months. Registration for early access is now open on https://rouvy.com

    Signed for invite. Want to see this!!. Seems a big improvement to make it more playable for the days you are a bit lack of motivation.

    As I play on a tablet on my handlebar with Windows (which they use not to be very powerful), hope the specs don't grow too much, as Rouvy is really really good in that way compared to the other indoors software applications.
    Or at least would be great that the feature could be optional in the future, not an integrated component which require (wanting it or not) much more powerful machines.
