Success Stories | Stijn Verwulgen | Innovante

Meet Stijn Verwulgen, the ingenious CEO of Innovante, who has revolutionized cycling with his groundbreaking invention - FAAST, the ultimate training bike! FAAST is not your average bike; it's a cutting-edge cycling simulator that mimics the physics of real cycling. By continuously monitoring the cyclist's posture in 3D, FAAST calculates the drag coefficient and required power output in real-time, delivering an authentic cycling experience like never before! To calculate the aerodynamic drag for each user, FAAST offers two approaches. One is a low-end solution that plugs in a standard value in the software. However, for unparalleled accuracy, the personalized approach is used. Users are first scanned in 3D (in a static pose) using a simple 3D hand scanner, and their drag value is computed through advanced computational methods. This calibration process requires time and significant computing power, but the results are remarkable! FAAST positions each cyclist in the most efficient way on their bike, maximizing power output while minimizing drag. Users can experience the impact of their posture changes in real-time, making the cycling experience truly immersive and rewarding! To take FAAST to the next level of accuracy, Innovante is seeking the extraordinary computing power of the Flemish Supercomputer Center (VSC). With a high-end 3D scanner to capture multiple scans quickly and rapid calculations of aerodynamic drag, FAAST will become the most precise cycling simulator in the world!
