I am designing a laser gate timing system to measure the 40 yard dash using some retro reflective sensors for my start and stop. I am having a difficult time trying to figure out the coding for a static start to start the time.
What I mean by static start is if an athletes hand or foots breaks the sensor beam for more than so many second simulating that they are standing still, then when the hand or foot moves out of the way and the sensor beam rejoins the timer starts.
I know very little coding and any help would be appreciated. Don't know if it is a while loop of an if loop, or anything like that.
