1) Development of PerfectPower Androïd & iOS

 

Release of PerfectPower Android 6.2 on Tue 27022024

Release of PerfectPower iOS 5.2 on Thu 07032024

Release of PerfectPower Android 6.3 on Tue 12032024

Release of PerfectPower iOS 5.3 on Sun 17032024

Release of PerfectPower Android 6.4 on Fri 22032024

Release of PerfectPower iOS 5.4 on Wed 27032024

 

Note 1: The development of these versions is taking much longer than expected, thank you for your understanding. Moreover, it was "cut" into three parts for the following two reasons:

- Elements have been added, and the most notable is the driving of the RaceBox Mini & Mini S in the next iOS 5.2 version, this is a surprise that I wanted to give to users of the iOS version due to the current level of sales of this version which completely satisfies me and I want to be grateful for that. Thus, I will also add the braking measurements and the “GPS only” mode (to be used only with the RaceBox Mini & Mini S) in the iOS 5.3 version

- Natural protection against hacking risks

 

Note 2: Running 3 times a week on athletics track at the moment, I took advantage of the development of PerfectPower Android 6.2 to develop PerfectPower Sprinters which should be able to be released fairly quickly (use of the RaceBox Mni & Mini S mandatory) , and which will delight all athletics fans like me (former regional sprinter). The aim of this application is to be able to measure your sprint times (the 3 typical distances 100 m, 200 m or 400 m but also any other distance of your choice and above all measurements every 10 m with instantaneous speed) with an extreme accuracy of around one hundredth of a second, and to be able to measure the instantaneous and average muscular power during this sprint.

 

Note 3: Please excuse me in advance if I fell behind in this announced schedule (bordering on the impossible) but rest assured that these versions will arrive as soon as possible, and btw I must have released them before my return to New York in April or May 2024.

 

2) Management of the PerfectPower website

 

Update of the FR site completed, that of the EN site in April 2024

Inauguration of a new “New generation” site linked to this one on Wed 27032024

Services proposal in New York (mapping on Honda)

 

I) PerfectPower Androïd

II) PerfectPower iOS

III) Miscellaneous (services proposal, future developments, projects)

Report of version 6.2 which will be released on Tuesday February 27, 2024

1) Unlocking the "GPS only" measurement mode (power & accelerations & braking measurements), allowing to get rid of constraints of the accelerometer, and therefore allowing:

- to completely free the phone from any mounting requirements (stability, vibration level, positioning)

- to carry out measurements on a road in poor condition, even if this is not recommended from a strict performances point of view, the rolling resistance (and the air resistance to a lesser extent) being seriously increased and variably over time

- to perform power measurements on a rolling start (indeed, the specific calibration phase at standstill is no longer necessary!)

- to no longer have to carry out the difficult specific calibration phase while driving for braking measurements

However, the use of the RaceBox Mini is essential to use this mode, the internal GPS of phones still limited to 1 Hz in 2023 being still far too slow!

 

Report of version 6.3 which will be released on Tuesday March 12, 2024

1) Adding a function of power results correction on road slope, with indication of the road slope and the correction applied.

However, the use of the RaceBox Mini is essential to use this function, the internal GPS of phones being much too inaccurate for an accurate correction!

 

Report of version 6.4 which will be released on Friday March 22, 2024

1) Improvement of ergonomics (new menu bar at the top or bottom -under consideration-, separation Main measurements / Secondary measurements in the main screen) and aesthetics (addition of logos associated with the types of measurements carried out, implementation of two meters: instantaneous speed, instantaneous power)

 

II) PerfectPower iOS

 

   

Report of version 5.2 which will be released on Thursday March 7, 2024

As part of the porting of the V6 Android version to the V5 iOS version:

1) Driving via Bluetooth of the RaceBox Mini (the most efficient "all-public" external GPS on the market: 25 Hz and 1 ft of horizontal accuracy!), allowing:

- to further increase the accuracy of PerfectPower measurements (especially the runs flying start)

- the use of the new "GPS only" measurement mode for power & accelerations & braking measurements, which will be unlocked in the version 6.2

2) Addition of 2 warnings to the automated control system for power and acceleration measurements: GPS receiver working, GPS accuracy

 

Report of version 5.3 which will be released on Sunday March 17, 2024

As part of the porting of the V6 Android version to the V5 iOS version:

1) Addition of braking measurements

2) Addition of the "GPS only" measurement mode (power & accelerations & braking measurements), allowing to get rid of constraints of the accelerometer, and therefore allowing:

- to completely free the phone from any mounting requirements (stability, vibration level, positioning)

- to carry out measurements on a road in poor condition, even if this is not recommended from a strict performances point of view, the rolling resistance (and the air resistance to a lesser extent) being seriously increased and variably over time

- to perform power measurements on a rolling start (indeed, the specific calibration phase at standstill is no longer necessary!)

- to no longer have to carry out the difficult specific calibration phase while driving for braking measurements

However, the use of the RaceBox Mini is essential to use this mode, the internal GPS of phones still limited to 1 Hz in 2023 being still far too slow!

 

Report of version 5.4 which will be released on Wednesday March 27, 2024

As part of the porting of the V6 Android version to the V5 iOS version:

1) Aesthetic improvements (addition of logos associated with the types of measurements carried out, implementation of two meters: instantaneous speed, instantaneous power)

2) Addition of the function of recalculation of the power results after measurement (very useful in case of incorrect initial configuration of the Setup data and/or the Car sheet)

 

III) Miscellaneous

 

A) Services proposal

 

To all garage managers specializing in Honda based in New York or in the area

 

I offer my help to carry out the mapping of any Honda equipped with a Hondata S300 or K-Pro ECU. I have 5 years of experience in the field in France (2018-2023) where I was entrusted with projects ranging from a 130 hp D16A9 atmo (N/A) to (soon) a K24 Turbo from 800 to 1000 hp, through K20 Turbo from 300 to 500 hp.

 

I just need a full day per car & project to perform an optimal tuning of the engine (performance AND reliability) and all the necessary checks, however it will also be necessary for a mechanic to check all the mechanical and electrical (harness) part of the car before I can carry out the mapping, having enough experience to know that 9 times out of 10 there is a problem at this level (anyway in France).

 

You can contact me by email for any information (Contact section).

 

B) Future developments (PerfectPower Android and iOS 7.x)

 

1) Export data to a CSV file

2) Optimization of the memory management, allowing the import / export of data between phones

3) Optimization of the performances simulation:

- Optimization of the grip limit calculation with modern sport tires (I will lead my own tests with my cars)

- Automatic delivery of reference flying start runs measurements following a power measurement:

25-50 mph & 40-80kph

50-75 mph & 80-120 kph

60-120 mph & 100-200 kph (if the car can of course)

4) Adding the informative fields "Engine inertia", "Wheels inertia", and "Total inertia" in the car sheets and the power results sheets

5) Adding the informative fields "Engine power at rev limiter" and "Estimated tire slip" in the power results sheets

 

C) Projects

 

1) Creation of PerfectPower Motorcycles (adaptation of PerfectPower to motorcycles)

2) Creation of PerfectPower Bicycles (adaptation of PerfectPower to bicycles, with the measurement of instantaneous and average muscular power during a sprint)

3) Creation of PerfectPower Sprinters (adaptation of PerfectPower to sprinters, with the measurement of instantaneous and average muscular power during a sprint)

 

I've had these projects in mind for years, but I would first like to completely finalize PerfectPower before launching them, so they should only see the light of day in 2024.

 

Note: Although the use of the RaceBox Mini will not be essential for PerfectPower Motorcycles (just as it is not for PerfectPower), it will however be essential for the two other projects, thank you for your understanding!
