MotionIQ: Enhancing Rider Performance through Data-Driven Suspension Setup


Motion Instruments, a leading provider of innovative solutions for racers, recognized the importance of mental preparation in racing and identified suspension setup as a critical factor in optimizing rider performance. To address this need, Motion Instruments developed the Moto Kit, a comprehensive data system that enables riders to fine-tune their suspension setup through real-time data analysis. This case study explores how MotionIQ, in collaboration with Lab651, successfully integrated their Bluetooth product with an Android app to enhance user experience and deliver a seamless solution for racers.



MotionIQ approached Lab651, seeking assistance in developing an Android app that seamlessly integrates with their Moto Kit via Bluetooth. The primary goal was to provide racers with an intuitive and user-friendly platform to record, analyze, and interpret suspension data captured by the Moto Kit during rides. The app needed to support real-time data transmission, enable data analysis and comparison, and provide comprehensive ride analytics to help riders make informed decisions regarding their suspension setup.


Lab651, a renowned technology consulting firm specializing in hardware and software integration, embarked on a collaboration with MotionIQ to develop a native Android app that perfectly complements the Moto Kit. By leveraging their expertise in Bluetooth technology and app development, Lab651 ensured a smooth integration between the Moto Kit and the Android app, addressing the following key requirements:

  1. Real-time Data Transmission: Lab651 developed a robust communication protocol to facilitate seamless and wireless data transmission from the Moto Kit sensors to the Android app in real-time. This allowed riders to monitor their suspension performance during rides and make on-the-fly adjustments.
  2. Intuitive User Interface: Lab651 designed an intuitive and user-friendly interface, ensuring that riders could easily navigate through the app and access critical information such as position and velocity metrics, mapping functions, and comprehensive ride analytics.
  3. Data Analysis and Comparison: The Android app provided riders with the capability to analyze and compare suspension data captured at different points during a ride. By leveraging the data analysis tools, riders could identify trends, track improvements, and make data-driven decisions regarding their suspension setup.
  4. Seamless Integration: Lab651 worked closely with MotionIQ to ensure seamless integration between the Moto Kit hardware and the Android app. Through rigorous testing and refinement, they ensured that the app effectively communicated with the Moto Kit, providing accurate and reliable data for analysis.
