How are near misses detected?
« on: February 27, 2018, 05:21:06 AM »
Hallo all,

I just wondered how the system detects the "near misses" and plays the correspondent sound? As the TSOPs just give a signal as a switch (1 or 0) and not a voltage depending on the strength of the signal, I do not see how a near miss could be detected.

Can someone illuminate me?

Kind regards
René

The Milestag shot packet is 14 (or 15) bits long. If the CORE board does not receive everything it is expecting, or some of the packet bits are too long, or too short, a near miss occurs.
