The technical field

The present invention relates to a device for input to computer data about the size of a bike wheel with a data entry tool, located on the included.

The level of technology

Usually cyclists own more than one bike. Use at least two different types of bikes - one is to drive on the road and one for off-road driving. The bike computer, located most often on the handlebars of the bike, known in practice. With their help, the operating characteristics are removed, are calculated and displayed. The athlete of perfect work, in particular on the traversed distance and speed, is now standard, including the athletes.

On the handlebars of a Bicycle is usually receiving element included that is installed there is removable. Configured to correct wheel size computer can now accept impulses from located on the spokes of the wheel sensor pulses, and calculate and display the desired characteristics.

If, now, the cyclist will want to change the bike, it is important for it will set your computer on currently used bike. As bikes have different size wheels, the cyclist must configure your velocomputer on the actual wheel size. In practice there are two main methods of data entry. In accordance with one input in the form of toggle buttons can be manually powered, resulting in the processing unit included are set up in wheel size, stored in the memory device. In accordance with another method can be used to perform programming by pressing menu included. Programming included is difficult due to its small size and often can only be made when using pointed objects to pressure on recessed in the housing contact pins. Mostly, extensive instruction manual pushes the cyclist wishes to read it. With the inclusion of the above mentioned buttons there is no possibility of control, whether strongly it was pressed and if she wasn't accidentally pressed twice. Such device settings require effort and time, and thus the probability of error. For athletes, focused on performance, unpleasant, if corrupted data lead to erroneous parameters.

Disclosure of inventions

Proceeding from the known practice of the prior art in the basis of the present invention is the task of creating a device of the type in question, and welocome the Ter is configured on the correct wheel size just reliable and almost automatically.

The above task is solved by the characteristics of claim 1 of the claims. Accordingly, the device of this type implemented in such a way that the computer has at least two means of data entry at least two sizes of wheels, and the bike made (attached) means for transferring data about the size of a bike wheel, and the tool data interacts exclusively with the tool data entry included, which corresponds to a given wheel size of the bike.

According to the invention it was found that setting the correct size for the selected wheel bike can be simplified, if the computer has multiple means of data entry for various sizes of wheels in accordance with the number of bikes. Thus, for each particular size of the corresponding wheel of the bike available means of data entry, which can interact with the tool data, made relevant (i.e. typical or specific) for a Bicycle or wheel size. Thanks to the coordinated work of a funds transfer characteristic for a given wheel size, and a data entry tool that is specific to the size of the wheels, the rider no longer need the most to make a choice. This, on the one hand, eliminates a source of errors, and on the other hand, avoids time-consuming using the menu included. In accordance with this invention it leads to a reliable and simple setup included.

According to a simple and reliable implementation variant of the invention a data entry tool can be made in the form of electrically conductive contacts, each of which communicates with the appropriate means of data transfer, made in the form of electrically conductive contacts. A data entry tool can defend each other, so that this spatial separation supports differentiation in relation to mechanical contact

Tool data can be part of per se known receiving element included. Among the conductive contacts mentioned device of the present invention are considered flat metal and/or plug contacts. Given the easy handling and low risk of damage, preferred are a little protruding contacts. According structurally advantageous form of execution of the tool data can be performed in the form of a flat contact, while the input can be designed as a contact pin with spring support. Contact pin with PR is jinnai support may be rounded at the free end and only slightly protrude from the casing wall included.

Typical wheel size of the input tool data and tool data coincide with each other in shape and size during layout included in the receiving element, so that due to electrical contact between the wheel size in the included can be set by entering values in the tool data. With this tool data can be, on the one hand, given such a function, it triggers the input in accordance with the size of the wheel or produces actuation settings only through the actuation means of the input. With this method take into account the dimensions of the wheels are already stored in the included. On the other hand, there is also the possibility that the data transfer occurs from any of the electronic circuit contained in the receiving element. Using the last of these possibilities extraneous bikes, whose size wheels are not stored in the included, also be suitable for use.

Simple structural variant to achieve a match or to create an electrical contact between the input tool data and tool data involves positioning the tool input data included on its lower side, and the vehicle data receiving element on the top is the thoron included. In this case, in the assembled condition, the lower side included is turned to the upper side of the receiving element, and the contacts are electrically connected.

Comparing the location of the data communication of the first receiving element of the first bike with tool location data of the second receiving element of the second bike in the present invention, it is expedient provided by the distance that corresponds to the distance between the two means of entering data included. The main idea is to provide multiple means of data entry, interacting with the means of data transfer is realized by the fact that the funds transfer data of different bikes are placed so that they can interact only with a single input included. Confusion is eliminated, as already at the location included in the receiving element, rigidly mounted position input characteristic for a given wheel size, relative to the tool data.

Alternatively can be used contactless technology through the transfer of signals between the available in the form of a transmitter means for transferring data and the corresponding receiver included. Different sredstava data included can be represented by different frequencies of the receiver, responsive to a signal corresponding to the wheel size of the corresponding data communication corresponding to the bike. When using option "transmitter - frequency receiver" preferred, you can also take advantage of the constructive possibilities of communication between the receiver element on the bike and included. So how to implement different frequency receiver is a little hard, a data entry tool can be designed in such a way that there is only one reception frequency, which, however, able to recognize different coding systems, so this configures the correct wheel size.

So now the computer in a suitable position to communicate with the receiver element, the latter may have a recess for installation included. Between the recess of the receiving element and protruding from the bottom surface of the fastener included can be constructed plug connection. For example, the fastener may have an external thread, and the recess is threaded, but it is also possible latches bayonet type. In this embodiment of the invention a data entry tool can be located outside the area of the protruding fasteners included, on the bottom surface, BP is me as a means of data transmission can be located on the boundary region, surrounding the recess of the receiving element.

Taking into account the desired access included all special for this bike and personal data or external data, such as for example, heart rate or tall sizes, the receiving element may contain a means of data processing, which also contains in its memory the criterion wheel size. In this case, assume to our own source of energy for the receiving element.

In a very simple embodiment of the device according to the present invention using the data input of wheel size, on the one hand, and the frequency of the pulses from located on the magnetic wheel sensor pulses converted by the detector into an electrical signal, on the other hand, are transmitted to the input and thus the processing unit included. The necessary energy is transmitted through contact included to supply energy to the contact for receiving power receiving element.

Other contacts between the included and the receiver element may relate to the cadence. The function proposed by the present invention device for entering data on the size of the wheels can therefore be expanded.
