Race timing technology leader shares insights on capturing the accuracy of virtual race timing and how it continues to evolve in today’s climate
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The disruption of Sports industry has no doubt change the way we participate in mass participation races. Gone are the days when sports enthusiasts register for a mass running event, diligently train and taper nearing race day, wakes up before the crack of dawn to join fellow running enthusiast at the starting line, wearing the race tee provided by the race organiser and check their result reflected on the race website afterwards.
The ongoing pandemic has given rise to many virtual racing app in the market but many a times, serious runners have questioned the accuracy and authenticity of result uploaded via screen shot of any activity app.
The D3VR App relies upon multiple tracking strategies to improve the tracking accuracy. GPS including other sensors available on mobile devices.
Niu year Runfastic Marathon is the latest virtual self-supported competition which captures the endurance of participants, either at 1 go or cumulatively for a total of 42 or 21km distances. This race allows participants to use the D3 VR app to register and track running from 1st April - 30th June, 2359hrs SGT.
The app’s leaderboard is flexible to accommodate a single or unlimited multiple accumulative distance. This encourages even an absolute beginner to start an active lifestyle by clocking their walks or jogs for even a very short distance of 500m or more, accumulatively at their own pace, till they hit the distance they have signed up for. Naturally, the prize monies are for the fastest or longest cumulative distances, but it shares the message that any distances, once cumulated becomes an impressive fruition.
In the words of Technology Director of D3 Solutions, Zubinn Tan, the market leader of Singapore home grown race timing technology with over 13 years’ experience :“We are confident that this app will be able to capture actual running, jogging or walking activities, and flag out questionable activities captured through travelling by Cars, MRT and buses etc. This app has been beta tested during the past lockdown series and many local school running competitions for the past year”.
The D3VR platform provide live leaderboard and can detect fraud, thus gaining traction with serious competitors which gives our competitors a peace of mind about our leaderboard statistics.
The beta series tryouts experience for past runs and cycling were very positive. Participants were satisfied with the fact that they were competing with fellow true runners or cyclist, instead of questionable results uploaded through screen shot which cannot be validated and accounted for.
