Just in time for holiday gift-giving season, PIQ and Rossignol present the PIQ ROBOT Ski Sensor package. The product is the first such embedded AI wearable ski sensor of its kind, which is worn on the skier’s boot. This sensor uses GAIA Intelligence, the first artificial intelligence system to automatically analyze sports motions. It delivers detailed, actionable performance analytics in real-time, empowering the skier to improve his or her runs.
The Rossignol PIQ ROBOT nano-sensor revolutionizes the skiing experience thanks to its GAIA intelligence data, which utilizes advanced algorithms to analyze movement and deliver information back to the skier. The PIQ ROBOT is able to measure the skier’s speed, angulation in turns, explosivity in transitions from one edge to the other, as well as the G-force of every turn, among many other metrics. The product’s multi-algorithmic, machine-learning intelligence is the result of fundamental and applied research, fueled by PIQ’s relentless innovation.
The product can examine the skier’s carving style down to the millisecond. It includes an integrated jump analyzer that records all the skier’s jumps with specific metrics such as rotations, airtime, and G-force at landing. Users can compare results with other skiers via leaderboards and other functions on the Rossignol and PIQ smart phone app, where athletes can communicate with a community of global users. The app allows skiers to share results on social media.
