PostSubject: expand the use of RFID [done v5.22]   13/10/2011, 11:00

Hi again Guy

After having implemented and tested the RFID driver change solution we are very impressed, this works perfectly and the RFID offers a lot of extra features that could be used in both digital and analog racing, here my thoughts:

1. if we install an RFID reader at each driver station the driver could be inserted automatically in the heat of PCLC - no longer necessary to setup races manually
2. drivers could have a card for each car they race, when using this all laptimes from the past could be automatically put in a database and this way give great information about setup progress etc.

Is i very difficoult to implement further functions to the RFID side of PCLC?

Looking forward to hearing your response

I think those are both great ideas.
I was also wondering if you are doing a team race, with 4 teams ( 4 lanes analog) do I need an RFID reader for each lane to change drivers, or will one reader automatically change drivers since the program knows what team they are on ?

Since RFID chips are so cheap now, less then a dollar, and tiny, I would love the option to glue one into the chassis of all the 1/24th cars, so you just hold the car up to the reader and it populates the race. Maybe I`ll add a reader under every lane !?
Thanks to PC Lap Counter we can do some really neat stuff.

I'd like to see just one other possible interface supported.

Simply because I'd like to be able to have an RFID interface if I sell a new ID Card on by the main PC, and a 2nd one for dealing with any enurance challenges etc, which would be suited for driver changeovers.

I've been having a play with the new tweaks just now.

Only possible bug I've come across is say
Driver "A" moves from Lane B to Lane C.

Then when i try to allocate a new driver, driver "B" to Lane B, I get the error buzz. I had a nosey at the manual update screen, and it turns out I had two instances of Lane C, one of which overwrote Lane B. Manually changing it so I had one instance of each lane seemed to fix the issue, but obviously when drivers hop between lanes could be an issue in heat based races.

However, I do note that you say it's partially done so I was expecting a couple of hiccups.

anyway, I'm off to see if I can install some tags in my cars.

Well done!
