Abstract

This invention adds an ultraviolet (UV) sensor to a marine electronic device such as a multifunction display (MFD), with the capability of communicating with other devices onboard such as portable indicators, alarms, and wristbands. The UV sensor monitors the intensity and duration of UV radiation present onboard a watercraft, and advises occupants of UV exposure, with the option of personalizing the advice for each occupant's individual skin tone.

This invention adds an ultraviolet (UV) sensor to a marine electronic device such as a multifunction display (MFD), with the capability of communicating with other devices onboard such as portable indicators, alarms, and wristbands.  The UV sensor monitors the intensity and duration of UV radiation present onboard a watercraft, and advises occupants of UV exposure, with the option of personalizing the advice for each occupant’s individual skin tone.

By adding a UV sensor to a marine electronic device or network, along with optional timers and skin tone lookups, it is possible to provide more reliable real-time, location-dependent and user- pertinent information to alert vessel occupants to the possibility of sunburn, and reduce sunburn risk.

By extension to other personal networked devices, mobile or dedicated alarm monitor units, using a suitable application, the apparatus could provide skin-tone mapped burn times for each occupant.  This on-wat...
