Yamaha launches the SmartRiding App in Japan, evaluating how smooth a rider can be!
This application is free, available at the App Store, requiring Apple devices (iPhone, iPod, iPad). For the time being the application is only available at the Japanese language.
The device has to be fixed either horizontally or vertical on the bike and by the use of the device˘s sensors and GPS, it records acceleration-deceleration and cornering angle data. The data gathered is evaluated then and the rider gets a score out of 100, for her/his skills around any section of the ride.
The ride may be reproduced by this data and the several sections may be of different color if riding smoothness was altered.
