WANTED - Person to see a timing light project through to its end.

Hello,

I am looking to commission someone to create / specify some hardware and the corresponding software to make a set of timing lights for testing my car.

  1. The car starts just before a beam. As it breaks the beam the timing starts.

  2. The car crosses another beam, as it breaks this beam the timing is stopped.

A windows c# or VB.Net application, or iphone app will also be required to interact with the timing gear somehow.

Before I go into more detail and write a full spec - would anyone be interested. Thanks

would anyone be interested.

Sure.

  1. The car starts just before a beam. As it breaks the beam the timing starts.

What size car? What kind of beam? Under what lighting conditions?

  1. The car crosses another beam, as it breaks this beam the timing is stopped.

And? You don't care what the elapsed time was? To what resolution? Nearest week good enough?

A windows c# or VB.Net application, or iphone app will also be required to interact with the timing gear somehow.

How much "interaction" is needed to deal with the output of the timing system?

How is the data to get from the Arduino to the iPhone/PC?

Just some things to think about.
