TL;DR: People run laps. We count, give them points and monitor it all.
This software is made for the yearly 12urenloop event. Small embedded computers with Bluetooth sensors running Gyrid are placed around the circuit and forward information on detected Bluetooth devices (i.e. our batons).
Count-von-count is the central component of the application. It analyzes incoming detection events and counts the rounds that were run, paying special attention to incomplete or irregular data. Teams automatically receive points for each round but can also receive points for special rounds or through other operator actions (Cheating? We'd never!).
All information and actions are permanently stored and can be replayed through the application. APIs to access this information are offered for other tools and score displays.
Boxxy is an application-level proxy server which receives information from count-von-count and distributes it again to a larger number of clients through websockets.
