  1. Literature research
  2. Develop test profiles
  3. Data acquisition
  4. Evaluate the influence of cadence

For extension towards a thesis:

  1. Find a model for the relationship between cadence and oxygen uptake for given power.
  2. Improve existing models for oxygen uptake for given power outputs.


  • Knowledge of MATLAB or similar numerical software packages is of advantage.
