Electronic chip timing process
Chip: Race Bib with RFID tag (chip) is worn by participant. The chip transmits their data using radio frequencies when crossing timing receiving equipment (mats). Chips MUST be assigned to the correct athlete and recorded properly to score an event.
Timing Hardware: Decoder captures the unique code from the chip and applies a timestamp. Then transmits this info to the scoring software.
Scoring Software: Software relates the raw transponder code and timestamp data to each entrant in a database and calculates times and places of participants using database queries and filters.
Timer Review: Timer reviews and adjusts finish data as needed.
Results: Data is then distributed through multiple forms such as printing hard copies, publishing on Heartland Racing Co. Website and posting on software such as RunSignUp.
