  1. Get familiar with the Arduino Due and magnetic and optical sensors
  2. Develop an electronic circuit to interface the optical and magnetic sensors attached at the chain ring
  3. Program the Arduino microcontroller to collect sensor events and to compute the pedal position and velocity

For extension towards a thesis:

  1. Calibrate the measurement setup
  2. Design and implement a communication protocol for data exchange between the Arduino and our simulation software


  • Knowledge of C/C++ is of advantage.
