Customizable Smoothing of Power Graph
Would it be possible (or is it already possible?) to display a smoothed version of the power graph? I think the best and most useful way would be if you would do this with a walking average (Parzen window with a block kernel) with a time interval that can be specified. Let me try to explain that better:
- At every point of the graph (time vs. power) you take the average of the power in the interval t/2 seconds before to t/2 after that point.
-The user can determine what the value of parameter t is (perhaps chosen from a fixed set of values; 1 second, 5 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute, 5 minutes, 20 minutes, 1 hour)
This would give users an easy way to see how much power they were producing at a certain point in time without being affected by noise, not pedaling, small surges, etc. It also gives the user an easy way to see where they had their best interval over a certain time (the point where the graph is at its peak). This could be used to easily determine FTP, etc. Currently I find the power graph virtually unusable because of the noise.
Because I realize this has a lot of overlap with the power graph, I think it makes sense to have this as a premium feature. (That would make me go back to premium again :-) ).
