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

We strongly recommend to gain experiences at several small tests to learn how to use the predictive system and the hardware. We support your tracking tests, just get in touch. For your small tests we recommend working at least with:
five active transponders
the Management Box
two LoopBoxes (if you like to work with LoopBoxes)
Create your event with required contests in your r|r 11 account.
Set Simple API to forward participant data from r|r 11 to Racemap.
Active transponders have to use the same tracking channel as TrackBoxes. Set up with management box, configuration at r|r 11: default channel 1.
Set up your TrackBoxes for live tracking in Racemap: Timing » Systems » TrackBox Configuration Rules
New Rule Set:
Channel ID: using TrackBoxes for live tracking requires a different channel than for timing system
Tracking Partner: “Racemap”
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
specific timing point the automatic timing point assignment rules these detections to (based on Loop and Channel ID), if Loop and Channel ID have been manually defined under Main Window » Timing Points
Activate your active transponders for live tracking with your Management Box before start of the contest.
