As a good scientist, we detail here why we managed to prove that our motorcycle mount prevents damage to your optical stabilizer (camera of the smartphone) by absorbing engine and road vibrations better than its direct competitors.
- Shapeheart XL motorcycle stand
- Rigid motorcycle stand from a competing brand
- Smartphone: OnePlus 6Pro
- Application: Physic Toolbox Suite (to retrieve accelerometer data)
- Drop box
- https://www.szynalski.com/tone-generator/ to generate the 40Hz
All you have to do is put the smartphone in one of the devices, attach the handlebars to the subwoofer, start the acquisition and turn up the sound :)
On average and according to all the axes of the accelerometer, we calculated the power transmitted by the vibrations to smartphone ( RMS = Root Mean Square).
According to all axes, the Shapeheart support absorbs the vibrations of the engine compared to a rigid support by 47% on average.
A Shapeheart support will absorb the half of the vibrations emitted by the engine from your motorcycle to your smartphone.
These vibrations are what cause the degradation of the optical/electronic components that are used to take pictures on a smartphone.
Well, all the components are made to absorb vibrations, unlike a bracket where the connection is rigid. It is as if your smartphone was directly connected to your motorcycle engine.
The differences of the Shapeheart motorcycle mount:
- The sleeve textile (vs. a hard shell)
- The silicone attachment (vs. a metal/plastic attachment)
- The dock base which is made of silicone (vs. a plastic/metal adapter)
We are also often asked the question, whether the smartphone Shapeheart mount will break the smartphone stabilizer.
So we decided to answer it in a new article available right here.
Attention! Contrary to our sleeves, the adhesive steel plate does not fully protect from engine and road vibrations. The 2 wheels listed on the product page can damage the optical stabilizer of your smartphone by vibrations.
