Meeting: Alan Adams

September 2021

Alan talked us through the evolution of a canoe slalom timing system, as it developed from the BBC Micro to the Raspberry Pi. The project is first and foremost a system for producing results at competitions, but over the years has has extended it to include online entry, multiple display screens showing (almost) live results, and most recently, timing to better than one tenth of a second accuracy, and results available over WiFi.
