Knowledge Base

This is the official Knowledge Base created by okinesio Labs.
Here you find useful information about our development process as well as content about our experience during the project.

There are so many fitness apps out there, so we evaluated some of the most common and tried to create our own approach – in a different way and with focus on information visualization.

We are exited to announce that we launched our new Knowledge Base, where we will publish articles relating our experiences during development.

We will update it from time to time. So stay tuned!

This article outlines a walk-through on how to make your own Arduino board (even if you have not studied electrical engineering – but you may get yourself familiar during the progress).

Let me build my own ...

Pedometers in general

Common electronic pedometers (e.g. activity trackers) are equipped with an digital triple-axis accelerometer (3-DOF) which measures the acceleration of the three directions (X, Y, Z). With an algorithm parsing the values in the background, steps can be detected on a specific pattern. The accuracy of detection mostly depends on a good algorithm. Some trackers additionally use multiple sensors such as an accelerometer and a gyroscope (6-DOF or even more) for precise determination on the hardware side.

You can find plenty information about accelerometers on the internet (if you’re interested in this topic).
