Currently this project is a 'bare bones' programme, that communicates with gate sensor devices over RS232.
Despite it's name this software can be used to track times for any sport with a start light, start gate and finish gate.

It currently supports two types of gate sensors:
•Generic timer-less sensors can use the computer to time-stamp the gate events.
•Agle Timy sensors time stamp the events themselves so the program will convert these.

Current race types supported:
•Team race (one starts as another finishes) this mode is flexible as it supports any number of lanes and racers.

Future race types:
•Single races with a comparison chart.

The program will adjust to locale e.g. multilingual.
Translations available:

A 'generic timer-less sensor' can be an arduino or pic-axe that sends two character codes when the start light, start gate or finish gate is triggered. The communication is currently fixed at 38400 baud.
