About the project.
Traverse is a conceptual autonomous drone & assistant, pod powered by Ai that's designed to be personal trainer for recreaitonal runners.

So Traverse aims to improve one's running performace as a personal trainer for recreational runners by its Ai-driven real-time coaching stystem. It provides posture coaching with customized exercise schedule and various running modes.

The autonomous drone comes with quad-propeller layout, and also features multiple fish-eye cameras that help it navigate through spaces without requiring any external controls. A main gimbal-mounted camera focuses on you as you run, monitoring your speed, performance, technique, laps, and charts your overall progress. While running, Traverse takes photos and videos of runners to give them Form correction & visual running feedback by tracking their posture with deep learning.

The Traverse drone is accompanied by the Pod, a wearable that sits around your neck. The drone uses the wearable as a tracking tag, while the Pod itself works as your personal coach, giving you audio feedback to improve your form and performance. A simple button-based interface on the Pod lets you toggle between various functions without having to look at your smartphone screen. After your workout’s done, detailed stats are sent to the Traverse’s companion app on the smartphone, allowing you to view every aspect of your run, from your route to your biostats and even your posture.

Traverse drone comes with a design that resembles the muscular physique of a fit human. The drone’s form is a combination of aerodynamic and curvy, creating something that looks sinewy and energetic. White and black dot paint-job gives seamless amalgamation of the look and feel of a stone with modern technology.
