Cat Wheel Activity Tracker On Strava #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Kevin Jordan modified his cat’s exercise wheel to track the activity and send it to Strava with Raspberry Pi. via idreamincode

My wheel from OneFastCat needed something. I wanted my cat to be able to compete on Strava with other cats but there was nothing available. Strava is a website and mobile app used to track athletic activity via GPS.

So, I made this system.

It is a breakbeam sensor connected with a Raspberry Pi computer. A fin on the outside of the wheel breaks the path of the sensor.
