Abstract/Artist Statement

The bicycle pedal power meter will be capable of recording the instantaneous power produced by a rider using the bicycle. The motivations for the project were to create a device that is very simple and easy to use for riders of any level. In addition, it should be less expensive then devices currently on the market, and it should be able to switch from bicycle to bicycle with ease. This device should be able to tell the rider their power output within 10% of the actual value. This device would be a good addition to the current market of bicycle power meters, and it would allow more riders access to the services provided by power meters.
