Title (EN) GPS BASED SPECTATOR AND PARTICIPANT SPORT SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE RELATIFS AU SPORT ET AUX PARTICIPANTS A DES EVENEMENTS SPORTIFS DESTINES A UN SPECTATEUR EQUIPE D'UN DISPOSITIF GPS
Abstract:
(EN) A spectator sport system and method that displays different views of a sporting event and, in particular, uses the spectator's GPS position to assist in displaying a view from the spectator's position. The spectator, using a personal device, can zoom, pan, tilt and change the view, as well as change the view to another position, such as a finish line, goal, or a participant position. Vital information on the sporting event or a participant can be appended to the view. In some forms, augmented reality can be used, such as a finish line or goal, to enhance the experience. Additional service requests can be made from the personal device.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système et un procédé se rapportant au sport et aux spectateurs qui présentent sur un écran différentes vues d'un événement sportif et qui, notamment utilisent la position GPS pour faciliter l'affichage d'une vue depuis la position d'un spectateur. Le spectateur, au moyen d'un dispositif personnel peut zoomer, panoramiquer, faire un panoramique vertical et changer la vue, il peut également voir la vue depuis un autre endroit, tel que le poteau d'arrivée, le but ou la position d'un participant. Des informations cruciales se rapportant à l'événement sportif ou à un participant peuvent être placées au-dessus de la vue. Dans certaines formes de réalisation, une réalité amplifiée peut être utilisée, tel que le poteau d'arrivée ou le but, afin d'améliorer le résultat. Des demandes de services supplémentaires peuvent être faites à partir du dispositif personnel.
