P11303: Roue Training Wheel


Project Summary Project Information

The objective of this project is to develop a training aid for a Roue wheel. This system will collect a series of position and time data including x, y, z, and t. This data will represent the roue wheel performer's routine. The data will be processed and transmitted wirelessly to a computer for review and real time feedback. Roue wheels are aluminum wheels ranging in size from 5-6 feet in diameter. The performer holds the wheel from the inside while engaging in skillful spins. Roue wheels are typically found in acrobatic performances such as Cirque du Soleil.
