Predictive Tracking with Track Boxes, Decoders (active & passive) and with Loop Boxes. With little experience, you are able to manage your own predictive live tracking.

Information before You start Predictive Tracking

Read the information race|result provides in Knowledge Base:

Settings in race|result

  • Create your event with required contests in your r|r account.

  • Set Simple API to forward participant data from r|r to Racemap.

Before start of Event: Activate active transponders for Live Tracking with Managament Box

Tracking Channel

Active transponders have to use the same tracking channel as Track Boxes. Set up with management box, configuration at r|r: default channel 1 but it should be different from channel for timing.

Track Box Settings

Set up your Track Boxes for live tracking in Racemap: Timing » Systems » TrackBox Configuration Rules

Set up Track Boxes: Timing » Systems » TrackBox Configuration Rules

New Rule Set:

  • Channel ID: using Track Boxes for live tracking requires a different channel than for timing system

  • Tracking Partner: “Racemap”

Loop Box Settings

Detections received from LoopBoxes are forwarded as TrackPing with the device ID of the connected decoder. That means, Racemap has no information, if the detection is received from a LoopBox.

  • Store Mode: detections are forwarded with delay and won't be used for live visualization, but for the replay of the contest

  • Repeat Mode: detections are forwarded directly and will be used for live visualization

detections received from a LoopBox will be forwarded through the exporters with the coordinates of the

  • decoder OR

  • specific timing point

    use the automatic timing point assignment rules for these detections (based on Loop and Channel ID), if Loop and Channel ID have been manually defined under Main Window » Timing Points

Set coordinates for your LoopBoxes, independent from location of connected decoder

Forward Data

To send data from passive or active systems other than the Track Box (Decoder, Loop Box, USB timing box), settings under Exporter + Tracking in the Timing tab of r|r are required. To prevent errors we recommend to select all timing points. In addition, the tracking partner "Racemap" must be selected and the race|result customer ID entered.

To start the data transfer please click the green playbutton at Exporters + Tracking (Timing Tab at Systems).
