PostSubject: Pitstop Problem   30/7/2008, 05:33

Hi, new user trying out the software.

I have webcam set up for pitstop as per instructions usiing ZOne Trigger Pro 2.3

Entry into pit is detected and car is refuelled
PCLC says GO
When I do go the green GO flag is still up, the next lap does not count since the software still thinks I'm in the pits.
If I go back into pits it is detected and the green Go flag goes away and I can continue (even though I am actually parked in the pits!)

Can you advise what I am doing wrong with the setup

Should I have a big hot zones for pitstop or small ones?
Does big or small make a difference for the lap counter zone also?

Regards
PM

Hello,

Have you follow this setup ? : http://www.pclapcounter.be/webcam_pitstop.html

1 - Add a Spot to detect pit stop
2 - Itís a Single pattern Spot (available only with zonetrigger pro version)
3 - Click Ďsetí to take a picture of the place without car
4 - The spot will run the program pitstop.exe
5 - Specify the program name to execute and the lane number
6 - The spot have to execute the program only when the car stay on the zone during 2 seconds

Yes, as mentioned in the first post, I followed the directions on the website.
It certainly recognises that the car in in pit. But does not recognise that it has left until I do another lap and actually park in pits again.

Can you advise if there is an optimum SIZE or SHAPE of the hot zone for either the lap counter or pitzone?

About optimum size : i take the default size.
About pitstop problem: i test it with zone trigger 2.3 and it's working fine like version 2.0: when the car enter into the spot for 2 seconds then the spot is blue and zonetrigger run the pitstop.exe program , when the car leave the spot then after 2 seconds the spot is blue again and zonetrigger run pitstop.exe (and PCLC generate a pit out event).
I think you should refresh the reference picture of the single pattern.

I have reset the pattern 10000 times with no change to the problem. The thing I could not figure out was the other lane was working as advertised. But the other lane was as described - even though all settings were the same - and the pattern was updated (without car) regularly
I tried many different sizes, shapes, sensitivities etc etc
Eventually it dawned on me to delete the problem hotzone and make another one.
Now both lanes are working properly - go figure............

BTW I have now just bought the program Very Happy

Would it be fair to say that the accuracy of time be dependant on the framerate of the camera - ie 30fps = accurate to within 1/30 second, and no more?
