High tech skiing goggles tested in Austria

High tech ski goggles tested in Schladming

In January and March this year mobile technology company evolaris will be experimenting with high tech skiing goggles in the Austrian holiday region of Schladming-Dachstein in Styria.

The project is testing out prototype software for data ski goggles that will provide live-information for winter sports athletes via a mini-display inside the goggles.

The Oakley Airwave data goggles were given positive feedback during a pilot field study at the Ski World Championships 2013 in Schladming. This led to evolaris gaining funding for a EU-research project 'Experimedia - Innovate in New Media' to develop an application for the goggles.

The project began in October when evolaris collected information about potential usage through surveys, focus groups and online interviews.

Now the data that has been developed will be tested out in a real life environment in two field studies in the Styria skiing region.

Features of the Oakley Airwave Ski Goggles already includes GPS antenna, sensors, and a micro-display. Information about speed, elevation and distance travelled appears on the screen. The application developed by evolaris will also provide live information about weather and snow conditions, waiting time at lifts and special restaurant offers.

It will also help skiers navigate easily from one life to another without having to stop to look at route boards.
