INCUS | CLOUD Platform2019-07-17T14:00:00+00:00

World-class analytics made simple.

Bring meaning to the numbers with powerful, automated cloud processing.

Why Artificial Intelligence?

INCUS | Machine Intelligence™ is the analytics engine underpinning the Cloud platform

The human brain is powerful, but often struggles with isolated problems such as mathematical calculations and large-scale trend spotting. Artificial Intelligence (AI) works differently; it can be tuned to process large, complex datasets, spotting trends within milliseconds. It can also learn to adapt its analysis to improve reliability over time.

INCUS | CLOUD brings the power of artificial intelligence to your fingertips

Value of interpretation

It’s what you do with the data that counts.

Raw Data

The base values that come directly from the sensors.

INCUS provides higher quality raw data than other wearables through advanced sensors and on-board processing.

Value of interpretation

It’s what you do with the data that counts.

Results

The ‘stats’ derived from raw data when interpreted in context.

Eg. Stroke count, stroke rate, split time..

INCUS provides over 30 unique measurements in swimming, with more than 6 INCUS exclusive measurements including body roll, Velocity Gain and body balance.

Value of interpretation

It’s what you do with the data that counts.

Insight

The correlations between results that influence a desired output.

Eg. “Your breathing strokes in freestyle have +10 degrees more body roll and are on average +1.2s longer than normal strokes”.

INCUS insights interpret and simplify performance data for you, so you not only understand the numbers better, but can apply them easily

Value of interpretation

It’s what you do with the data that counts.

Action

An intervention in training that will benefit performance based on an insight

Eg. “Try paddle board breathing drills to reduce additional rotation during a breath stroke”

INCUS proactively suggests drills and tutorials based on your insights, to focus your training most effectively

Actions speak louder in thirds

Our aim is to distil complex performance data into three key actions for you to improve.

Data alone won’t make you faster. We believe the real value of data is in the actions taken as a result of quality measurement and analysis. INCUS | Machine intelligence™ interprets complex data for you and condenses these into clear, simple insights and actions based on your data. If you want to explore the underlying numbers, they’re all there for you, but now you don’t need to swim through lots of figures or have a sports science degree to know what you need to focus on.

Swimming.
Just the beginning.

Phase 1 of INCUS | Machine Intelligence™ focuses on swimming analysis.

Swimming is widely considered to be the most challenging triathlon discipline to train for. It has the least technology available to quantify technique/ training and requires the most stringent validation to ensure results are accurate. Phase 1 of INCUS | Machine Intelligence™ makes quality swimming analytics accessible, ahead of wider triathlon integrations.

The INCUS platform evolves over time. The latest upgrades and multi-sport features are free and automatically updated for INCUS athletes when available.

Frequently Asked Questions

Need to know more about INCUS Cloud Platform?

When will I receive my pre-ordered INCUS | NOVA?2019-07-10T14:27:12+00:00

Pre-orders are to be shipped ready for Winter training 2019/20. We expect that the first pre-ordered units will be shipped in time for Christmas 2019, and manufacturing is currently on schedule for this.

What is INCUS | CLOUD™?2019-07-10T11:59:35+00:00

INCUS | CLOUD is an analytics platform that allows you to visualise and explore INCUS analytics in a clear and simple way. INCUS | CLOUD has been developed to make data collected by INCUS wearables easy to understand and apply in training for performance benefit. The CLOUD is accessible via your smartphone or computer, where you log in to view and explore your data either during your workout, or at home. Full features are to be announced in Autumn 2019.

What is INCUS | Machine Intelligence™?2019-07-10T12:08:45+00:00

INCUS | Machine Intelligence is the analytics engine that underpins the INCUS | CLOUD. Machine Intelligence is the ‘brain’ of the INCUS system and is a collection of advanced algorithms that automatically processes data to produce meaningful information and insights for you. The system interprets complex performance data for you, translating raw data from INCUS devices into meaningful results and insights for you to use directly in training. This is important because data alone won’t make you faster, it’s the understanding and application of quality data that will lead to performance benefit over time. Typical wearable trackers don’t have this analytics support and therefore cannot guide you as clearly to improve as INCUS.

How is INCUS CLOUD™ different to other training software products on the market?2019-07-10T14:04:04+00:00

Most training platforms don’t actually analyse any of the data they have, they simply share it. They also typically rely on third-party devices to collect the data for them, which means that even if the device collects more detailed information, it’s not always communicated effectively to the user. INCUS | CLOUD is a holistic platform that has been developed to make technical analysis easy to understand, and simple to apply in training. It combines powerful, automated analysis from INCUS | Machine Intelligence with clear and simple data visualisation for you to interpret and share with your friends, team-mates and support staff. In addition to data analytics, the INCUS | CLOUD provides a single place for performance monitoring and communication including tutorials, digital logbooks, session scheduling and sharing within your team.

Why does INCUS | CLOUD™ focus on swimming first?2019-07-10T14:04:39+00:00

Swimming is widely considered to be the most challenging triathlon discipline to train for. It has the least technology available to quantify technique/ training and requires the most stringent validation to ensure results are accurate. From our hands-on work with swimmers and Triathletes, it is the swimming leg that was most in need of quality INCUS analytics technologies – as such we decided to start there first and provide a world-first performance monitoring solution that can quickly scale to running and cycling in due course.

INCUS takes a rigorous, engineering approach to research and development. With the tough measurement environment in swimming as the first hurdle, we have been able to spend time to design INCUS | NOVA to be a robust and high quality wearable device that delivers exceptional functionality even under the harshest conditions. With this engineering development now complete and embedded within NOVA, we know that the system is strong and durable enough for use across running, cycling and other applications in the future.

 

Does INCUS | CLOUD™ work on a Mac/PC or smart devices?2019-07-10T14:06:08+00:00

The INCUS | CLOUD is a cross-platform analytics system. It is compatible with iOS and android smartphones, and via a web browser on your computer.
