Indoor Kayak Race



Indoor Kayak Racing is a bespoke system built for British Canoeing. It runs an entire ‘mini regatta’ using indoor kayak machines (similar to the popular Concept2 rowing machines). Participants enter the competition through the app. As each participant finishes their race, the app stores their score and automatically updates the event leaderboard. A scrolling leaderboard is displayed wirelessly using a Google ChromeCast plugged into a HD television. At the end of the event, all of the results are uploaded to an accompanying web database. This shows ‘top 10 leaderboards’ and results for each event, allowing participants to compare their scores against others.
