Canoe Slalom scoring and timing system
Canoe Slalom scoring and timing
Using a network of RISC OS Raspberry Pi computers
This system has evolved over almost 40 years.
Currently we use about 9 raspberry pis to run the event and keep the competitors updated, as close to real time as possible.
This year I am adding the ability to time events as well. This partly because the timing system available from British Canoeing isn't available to Division 4 events, and partly because it allows us to operate with one or two less people while reducing the possibility of errors when transcribing times from one system to another..
