Live Tracking

With this open source live tracking software you can record and analyze data in real time. You have full control over the data, because the software runs on your own server. You are able to track your time elapsed, distance, speed and elevation in real time. And if you have any ANT+ or Bluetooth sensors, this data can also be transmitted. Optimized for easy use.


With the Android app IpBike you can transfer your data in real time. Deposit your access data in Settings > Upload settings > Custom livetracking settings. The app supports ANT+ and Bluetooth sensors. You can transfer your speed, heart rate, cadence and power as well as the GPS coordinates.

This software is very much based on InfluxDB. So you have all the advantages of a very fast time series database. It aims to answer queries in real-time. Each user comes with his own InfluxDB database for live tracking. Only you as an owner can write to the database. Currently you can save 8 hours of data.

Your profile is always public, your friends can view your data at the following URL: https://your-domain.local/watch/YOUR-USERNAME

Because you have your own InfluxDB database, you can also use other evaluation programs. A popular program is e.g. Grafana. Use the URL https://your-domain.local and the database name YOUR-USERNAME.
