Is it possible, ussing phidget (what I have), to install more than one sensor bridge, using one as start/finish and two more that can be used to split the track in 3 sectors.

It is used in F1

I took this from F1 glossary

"Sectors
For timing purposes the lap is split into three sections, each of which is roughly a third of the lap. These sections are officially known as Sector 1, Sector 2 and Sector 3."

Thanks.
Eduardo.

Ecominguez,

Electronically, yes - it is possible to wire multiple light emitter/detectors in parallel with each other such that any one of the light sensors would register with the Phidget. For example, a separate pit-stall area could have a separate emitter/detector pair from the Start/Finish line sensor/detector pair.

With regard to lap sectors, the challenge becomes handling the data through the software. Options would have to be built into the software to choose how many sectors per lap are to be used. Then, extra display fields and calculations would need to handle the differences between the timing events that occur in a given lap. I would imagine that the PC processors could handle the extra calculations, but I can imagine that the program coding could get rather messy trying to account for all of the scenarios that could occur in a given lap with multiple timing devices.

Guy will need to determine how much demand there would be for this feature. I'm not sure that many PC Lap Counter users would go to the trouble of wiring multiple sets of emitters/sensors around their tracks.

I am not in a hurry Smile. Thank you for your answer.

Can this thread be put at "demands", may be I can find there more people that could be interested in this features.

But don't worry if you think that this is not a good idea, it is ok for me, I was just asking because it seems a good option if one want to improve the driving.

Thank you.
Eduardo.

there is already a topic about sector timing in the demand section...
