With the X2 system MYLAPS is taking the first step in building a brand new platform to collect and route data at a completely different level. The new platform will enable transponder-based products and services to be used for much more than timekeeping only. By working together with timekeepers, circuits and developers we create more value for everybody involved in racing.
The X2 system has an all-new and robust design and includes newly developed portable decoders and servers. The system is built on a new and highly advanced infrastructure and can be used for multiple (motorized) sports.
All vehicles on the track are equipped with MYLAPS transponders in order to identify the racer and record their results.
The decoder determines the exact time at which each transponder passes the detection loops. The decoder sends this data to the server.
Detection loops are embedded in the track’s surface at the start and finish line and at intermediate timing points along the track. A detection loop works as the system’s antenna. It picks up signals from the transponders and passes them through to the decoder.
The detection loops for X2 are similar to TranX detection loops. When you switch to X2 you don´t have to install new loops.
TrackSensors can be installed with the detection loops. These sensors give you access to even more data and statistics, such as the temperature of the track and the status of the loop.
