Description

  • State of the art
  • The invention relates to a method and a device for operating a motor-driven sports device. The invention further relates to a computer program that is designed to carry out the method according to the invention as well as an electronic storage medium on which the computer program is stored.
  • Motor-driven sports equipment such as jet skis, snowmobiles or quads often have powerful engines, but at the same time must be able to be controlled safely even by less experienced users. In addition, motorized sports equipment is often used in busy areas. Jetskis, for example, often operate close to beaches and, before they can be used on open water, they often have to pass through a strip of water near the beach, which is used, for example, by careless swimmers. To avoid accidents, it is therefore necessary to operate the jet ski on such a beach near water strip only with limited maximum speed. In addition, it should be ensured that a jet ski does not enter a water area that is heavily frequented by swimmers and therefore not released for use by jet skis.
  • It is known from the prior art to equip jet skis with a GPS receiver which is set up to ascertain the speed of the jet ski and to indicate to the user of the jet ski. The user must autonomously adapt the speed to the current area of traffic and also ensure on his own responsibility not to drive in areas that are closed to jet skis.
  • Disclosure of the invention
  • The inventive method with the features of the independent claim has the advantage that a maximum speed of the motor-driven sports equipment, such as a jet ski, snowmobile or quad, depending on a position of the sports equipment is at least temporarily limited. In an advantageous embodiment, it is provided to make the limitation of the maximum speed depending on the time of day. For example, it may be provided to limit the maximum speed during the day, while no limitation of the maximum speed is provided at night. Thus, for example, when using the invention in a jet ski, the fact can be taken into account that more floats must be expected during the day, which bring about a potential risk of collision with the jet ski.
  • It is also advantageous to determine the position of the sports equipment and to link the position of the sports equipment with an approved maximum speed, which is provided by means of an electronic card.
  • A further advantage is that the electronic card comprises a plurality of operating zones, each of which is assigned a reliable maximum speed. Such operating zones can be defined, for example, by an authority or else also be defined by an operator of a motor sports equipment that can be rented, for example.
  • It is advantageous that the electronic card and the position of the sports device is displayed to a user of the sports device via a display device.
  • It is advantageous that the illustrated electronic map is associated with a current orientation of the sports device and is represented by means of an edge region of the display device of a position of an operating zone, which corresponds to an unrestricted maximum permissible speed. Under position is to understand the direction in which the operating zone, which corresponds to a non-restricted maximum speed, is. In an advantageous development, a link between direction and distance of the operating zone, which corresponds to an unrestricted permissible maximum speed, is understood to mean position.
  • For example, the electronic map may be displayed on the display device such that an area in front of the sports equipment is displayed in an upper area of the display device. The user of the sports equipment can thus easily transfer the information of the electronic card to his environment. By showing the location of an operating zone that corresponds to a non-restricted speed limit, the user of the sports equipment gets easily shown in which direction he must control the sports equipment to retract to a range of unrestricted speed limit. The use of an edge region of the display device for displaying this position enables a simple and intuitive linking of the position of the sports equipment with a preferred direction to be taken.
  • It is particularly advantageous if an actual speed and / or the position of the sports device is determined by means of satellite positioning. In a particularly advantageous embodiment, I am in the Satellite positioning around GPS, Galileo or other commercially available satellite positioning services.
  • It is advantageous to limit the maximum speed at which an engine output is reduced if the actual speed exceeds the permissible maximum speed. The limitation of the maximum speed compared to the pure limitation of an engine output variable has the advantage that it can always be ensured that the motor-driven sports equipment remains controllable. For example, if the motorized sports equipment is a jet ski, a speed-independent limitation of an engine output might cause the sports equipment to be driven off when the available engine output is insufficient to balance, for example, wind or wind.
  • The device according to the invention for operating a motor-driven sports device has the advantage over the prior art that a position determining unit is provided which is set up to determine the position of the sports device, a speed unit is provided which is set up, an actual speed of the sports device an association unit arranged to associate the position of the sports equipment with a maximum permissible speed, a comparison unit arranged to compare a maximum permissible speed with an actual speed, and a limitation unit arranged to exist to limit a maximum speed of the sports equipment if the actual speed exceeds the allowed maximum speed.
  • It is also advantageous if the device comprises a display device which is set up to display a map and speed zones associated with the map.
  • It is particularly advantageous if the position determination unit and / or the speed determination unit comprise a satellite positioning module.
  • Also advantageous is a computer program that is designed or compiled to perform each step of the method according to the invention.
  • Also advantageous is an electronic storage medium, on which the computer program is stored, and an electronic control unit, which comprises the electronic storage medium.
