Hi all.



Would it make sense to make converters for timing and so on this way :

Create the needed HW for registrating cars passing, and an analog interface to
'all' the existing HW and SW for timing heats, lap counting an so on.
Lets say with a maximum of 8 lanes/cars.

Most of us got some timing SW we would like to keep on using.

I know you can't have 16 cars at the track but still less new SW to write.

Hey Kiklo,

Welcome aboard!

Your suggestion sounds reasonable to me. To do otherwise would be to assume that you will chip everything you own for a particular vendor's solution. And that does not seem likely.

I would be surprised if the manufactuers did what you are thinking of.

If we want a standard to emerge from all the manufacturer specific propriatery solutions, we'll have to make them ourselves.

If we stick to open standard interface specification, and perhaps some open source PC software, it might be possible to define a standard.

I think the key issue is easy adoption to all comercial track systems, by the end user. In other words, it must be easy to connect the system to a Carrera, Scalextric, SCX, Ninco or Artin track.
