Being the leading sports event company in China, Nordic Ways is always seeking for the best in every aspect within our fields. In order to provide a more efficient environment for the timing, Nordic Ways always use highly advanced timing system — IPICO. The IPICO system has turned out to be a wise choice being used in some of our events, Genghis Khan MTB Adventure & Grassland Extreme Marathon, Vasa Cross Country Running Festival and Birkebeinerrittet China. The system has also been used in the 16th Asian Games, Guangzhou 2010 for marathon and walking race.
IPICO is one of the sports technology designed for cycling, running, swimming and other events, including multi-stage and multi-sport races. It consists of IPICO tag, antenna mat carpet, and signal reader. As long as the tag gets contact with the antenna mat carpet, it wakes up and starts sending its unique signal again and again to the reader, which stores volumes of data to be managed and communicated. It’s combined with two technologies—Dual Frequency (DF ) and the IP-X RFID air interface, which has brought many benefits much more highly standard than the previous ones, such as it can read tags in very high moisture environment with the high speeds. The passive tags are energized at 125KHz, allowing a long range charge-up, and they backscatter their IDs at 6.8MHz, allowing for fast read rates.
Take the Genghis Khan MTB Adventure 2010 for example, the top three athletes Cui Hao, Feng kuanjie and Wang Lei got the results of 01 : 37 : 15.302, 01 : 37 : 15.640 and 01 : 37 : 15.700 respectively, which are really close and can be almost impossible to timed by the previous timing ways when they three passed the finish line at the same time. But IPICO did it impressively!
Having our own time keeping system for the events is a strategic and very important step to increase the overall quality and experience of the Nordic Ways events and competitions. It is also in line with our ambition to be the leading sports event company in China within our fields. We are paving a new brighter and wider way for our events of just, profession and efficiency. Nordic Ways is timing a better race!
Nordic Ways are also glad to share the system with any other sports organizers who are interested in as well.
