Arduino Uno Lap Timing System

Recommended Posts

Firstly i apoligize if this subject has allready been covered, i am new to this forum. I look after disabled kids as a volunteer so i put together a scalextric track together from 3 kits built all the buildings ect so now i would like to build a lap and timing system. I have tried webcam but is to unreliable because the kids keep activating the webcam by fingers or knocking the table. I have a game pad and a arduino uno board so i would like to know step by step details on what i need and how to put either one together. I am not sure what sensors to use but something that will not activate by knocking or shadows. Any help would be usefull

Search the forum for Race Coordinator, the program runs on most PC or Lap top and wiring and sensor information is discussed in te thread.

You can used IR sensors in the track or modify a piece of track to add dead strips for counting.

The RC program can be downloaded and tested in a demo mode.
