Exertainer, a pervasive exergaming platform, supports multiple heterogeneous exercise devices, such as hula hoop, jump rope, exercise bike and interactive treadmill, as well as wearable motion sensors. I have prototyped the exercise devices and the wearable sensors (in both of hardware and software). The platform utilizes a variety of sensors, including accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor, rotation speed sensor and magnetic switch to detect players’ activities and exercise context.
