Thanks to a series of sophisticated algorithms developed by a team of mathematicians and tested during sporting events, it has been able to combine the standard parameters (including the length of the track, the time, the average speed, the elevation profile and the maximum speed) a series of more qualitative measurements of the athlete's performance which allowed to distinguish a performance equal to the others in quantitative terms but different in terms of coefficient of difficulty.
In particular, the solution developed for GPS Formula allows you to accurately measure the following parameters:

  • width of the lap carried out in terms of overall area
  • exclusion of the areas in which the athlete returns on his track, going to quantify the actual external perimeter
  • the extremely points of the track or the distance traveled from the start area 
  • assessment of speed not in terms of maximum peak (which is always affected by a greater possibility of error) but in terms of the best stretch made within the entire session
  • attributing an overall score of the athlete's performance and making it possible to evaluate one performance from another in absolute terms, effectively creating a race format that allows athletes to compete worldwide on the same race parameters.
  • Automatic detection of the wind direction expressed in degrees
  • Automatic detection of the type of maneuver performed (tack or jibe)
  • The speed during the maneuver
  • The velocity made good during the maneuver, a fundamental parameter that relates the speed of a vehicle in relation to its angle to the wind
  • The degrees entering the maneuver with the degrees exiting the maneuver to highlight the gap
  • Input speed and output speed
