Improved basic grabber and drafting tool
For a couple of months now, we are providing the grabber to pull real-time data from endurance races and make the data usable for live productions such as video broadcasting. Time for an update.
We now added the new parameters
gapDistance to the grabber. Additionally, there can be set a
refDeviceId or a
refStartNumber to flexibly define the reference device for the gap calculations.
Furthermore, the drafting- and related penalty discussion at triathlons let us develop a prototype of a drafting tool. The tool evaluates the distance between participants and monitors if participants move in the draft zone.
All information about our handy tools to easily extract live data from our */current-API can be found in our documentation article: https://docs.racemap.com/data-api/grabber
