With thanks to Michael Bartlett, we’re closing in on the completion of an open source timing system for AutoSolos using beam break sensors. A Raspberry Pi connects to the beam break sensors, which can be rented from Cotswold Motorsport Group and uploads times directly to a web service through a WiFi connection.
If you wish to help, especially if you’re a developer, pull requests would be greatly received! You can find the source code on our Github:
We’ll get documentation on building the hardware up soon, including a full parts list.
