Method And System For Measuring Physical Parameters In A Trampoline Competition

For the method and system (1) for measuring physical parameters, several motion sensor assemblies (2) are arranged in different positions on a trampoline (10) and activated to measure any motion over time during jumps performed by a competitor on a trampoline. Following the processing of measurements made in each sensor assembly, data signals are transmitted to a base station (25). As a result of the various measurements received over time from each sensor assembly, the base station determines a time of flight for each of the competitor's jumps, and a position of contact of the competitor on the bed (21) to award points to the competitor for the performance of a determined number of jumps during the competition.

1 Independent Claim

  • Independent Claim 1. A method for measuring physical parameters in a trampoline (10) competition, with a measuring system (1) that includes several sensor assemblies (2) arranged in different positions on a trampoline (10), the sensor assemblies (2) being independent of one another, for communication of data signals to a base station (25) of the measuring system (1), each sensor assembly (2) comprising a motion sensor (3), a processing unit (4) and means (6) for transmitting and receiving data or control signals, the data signals containing the measurements made by the motion sensor, characterized in that the method includes the steps of: for a competition mode, activating each sensor assembly (2), measuring any motion or variations in motion over time via the motion sensor (3) of each sensor assembly (2) following jumps performed by a competitor on a bed (21) of the trampoline (10), processing one or more of the measurement signals from the motion sensor (3) in the processing unit (4), which is a microcontroller, of each sensor assembly (2), a time base of each microcontroller (4) of the sensor assemblies (2) being adapted as a result of a synchronization transmitted by the base station (25) in communication with each sensor assembly (2), transmitting measurement signals clearly defined in time from each sensor assembly (2) to the base station (25) of the measuring system (1), automatically determining in the base station (25) following the various measurements received over time from each sensor assembly (2), a time of flight for each of the competitor's jumps, and a position of contact of the competitor on the bed (21) in order to award points to the competitor for the execution of a determined number of jumps during the competition.
