RaceID tower-grid

before a track could be used for serius racing and not only for practice, there must be a lapcounting system.

RaceID tower-grid

Post by kiklo »

I'm going to test how well it will work with RaceID IR facing up and having it register in an overhead 'bridge'. And testing the distance needed.

You wil not need to cut in the track and you will be more free to rearange the start/finish line. Or add intermediat time segments.

The legs will have room for fasteners ( glue in magnets and screws into the board ) and the Arduino Nano timing device. So you only need to have the USB cabel from there to your PC.

Ok.

So a distance from a few mm to 2cm works great.

The most important factor seems to be to have the IR pointing straight up.

No need to add cost to this hobby. When it has grown the hottest hobby in town then we will see. :-(
