The future of racing

MYLAPS introduces the world’s first timing and data system that offers the possibility to measure and publish more race data than just lap times: the X2 system.
The X2 system is the next generation MYLAPS platform and offers extensive insights in race activity, track status and system performance.

X2: the next generation timing and data system

With the X2 system MYLAPS is taking the first step in building a brand new platform to collect and route data at a completely different level. The new platform will enable transponder-based products and services to be used for much more than timekeeping only. By working together with timekeepers, circuits and developers we create more value for everybody involved in racing.

The X2 system has an all-new and robust design and includes newly developed portable decoders and servers. The system is built on a new and highly advanced infrastructure and can be used for multiple (motorized) sports.

New benefits to the world of racing

 The X2 system brings many new features to everyone who's involved in racing.

 

  • Automatic upload to MYLAPS.com

    The X2 system automatically uploads practice data to a personal MYLAPS account on mylaps.com.

  • Supports multi-loop setups

    A multi-loop set-up makes sector timing at the track possible. Race data can be segmented for each sector, allowing racers to focus and improve on specific parts of the track.

  • One system for all sports

     With the X2 system it is possible to time all motorized sports, like car, motorbike, kart and MX racing*. This makes it possible to expand timing services to other markets.

    *One transponder type per session

  • 2-way communication

    The X2 system brings 2-way communication to the race track: data is not only transmitted from the X2 transponders to the X2 system, but it will be possible to send vital race data back to the vehicle, which can be displayed through onboard race displays.

  • Track analysis & remote control

    The X2 system offers insight to system performance. Diagnostics can be accessed and controlled remotely when connected to the Internet via the X2 Cloud. Timekeepers are able to set-up and monitor the system from everywhere: a perfect solution for checking in on free practice runs and race days.

  • Track temperature and loop status

    With track sensors (optional) installed at the track, it is possible to monitor track temperature and loop status.

  • Live timing

    X2 enables live timing which makes it easier to broadcast real-time race data. Data can be published on displays on the track, on websites or via mobile apps and third party applications.

  • Develop custom apps

    A Software Development Kit is available with the X2 system, which enables developers to build custom applications.

  • Remote support

    The X2 system is characterized by the high build quality and ease of use. Still, issues may occasionally occur. When connected to the Internet, online support via the X2 Cloud is at hand.

 

To unlock the new benefits and make full use of the X2 system’s capabilities, MYLAPS will introduce the X2 Racer pack. This includes an X2 transponder and X2 key for racers. Current (non-X2 transponders) MYLAPS transponders are compatible with the X2 system for timekeeping purposes, but will not benefit from the all-new X2 features.

System components

The X2 system introduces a completely new way of timekeeping and race data management. The system consists of the following components:

 

  • X2 Server

    The X2 Server is the beating heart of the system. All components are connected to and controlled from this core device.

  • X2 Decoder

    An X2 decoder collects data from the detection loops which capture the signals that are sent via the X2 transponder.

  • Orbits 5 Software

    The system runs on top-notch software, based on the well-known Orbits software: Orbits 5. Orbits 5 is dedicated for X2, but third party software is also available.

  • X2 Cloud

    The X2 Cloud collects and back-ups race data from X2 systems connected to the Internet. The X2 Cloud also offers access to the Software Development Kit.

For series, race tracks and timekeepers that require a set-up for professional racing, MYLAPS offers the X2 Pro system. Some of the world's biggest racing series already use the X2 Pro system:
