Overall objective: Personalized non-round chainrings based on real-time optimization of the shape of a (virtual) chainring
- Collect, review, discuss available research of non-round chainrings
- Establish a penalty function that would have to be minimized during the optimization. Penalty function can be related to muscle activation, speed variations, multibody analysis, etc
- Develop an optimization algorithm that modifies the chainrings whilst cycling
- Develop a measurement protocol to find the optimal chainring for an individual. The form of the chainring will influence fatigue and muscle contraction speed, leading to new optimal chainrings
