Computime has significant experience in the use of AMB and Dorian timing transponders, and is also highly regarded for their "manual" timing work (involving a combination of laser beam timing and manual data entry of competitor racing numbers). Our software is developed in house, enabling us to tailor our systems to improve the information and timeliness provided to competitors. We continue to make regular improvements to our TV Race Display and web browser based display used at circuits over Computime's temporary wireless network installed at each circuit, and continue to offer live timing over the internet at most events. We continue to develop systems to improve services provided at events. We have recently refined an IP multi-camera jump start system to ensure that any jumped starts are reported accurately and fairly. We are now developing software for race control to pinpoint competitor location through a combination of electronic track maps, intermediate timing loop timing data, and average sector times.
