Car Off Track
The car off track display objective is to detect a slow cars on track. This can be used for safety by being able to inform the driver quickly of a danger or for strategy purpose.
The control is really effective when the GPS data is provided inside the feed. Without, it depends a lot on the length of each sectors to be effective of not.
When all cars are going at the expected speed, the display will just be green with the word OK:
When a car is going slower than expected, it will display the car number of the slow car and the sector line at which the car is stopped:
For timing feed without GPS data
The checkbox Use GPS needs to be unchecked:
The software will then check if a car is late at a sector line. It will compare the actual time that a car has been spending on a sector to the estimated sector time for that car. Once the difference is greater than the tolerance it will trigger the alarm.
For timing feed with GPS data
The checkbox Use GPS needs to be checked:
In this case, the tolerance is not used and the software will just detect a car on track that is going slower than 40kph for a 5Hz signal.
Sometimes a car can stays on the race track in HH Timing even after a crash. We added a textbox to be able to blacklist them from the car off track scoreboard.
Example without car blacklisted:
Example with car 4 blacklisted:
Automatic spotter update on full track map
When a car gets detected on the car off track display, it will automatically appear on the spotter option of the full track map:
This allows a very quick visualization of which car has an issue and where on track it happened.
Once the car gets cleared (or blacklisted) from the car off track display, the spotter list from the full track map gets updated as well.
