Nastar RFID

RFID System

 

Ski resorts are installing the NASTAR Radio Frequency Identification System (RFID) to improve efficiency.

 

Why racers love the system:

 

When participants slide into the start with the NASTAR RF card in their pocket, they are automatically loaded into the timing software. Plus the RF scan is associated with each racer’s NASTAR record, so results are always connected to participants’ online accounts.

Why race staff love the system:

 

The NASTAR RFID system speeds up getting racers on course, helps staff waste less time entering registration information into the timing software, and spend more time answering questions. “Racers that have a registered ID card can just hop in the box and go,” said Logan Ice, Aspen Mountain NASTAR Coordinator. “They love it.”

 
 

How the NASTAR RFID system works

 

The first time a racer’s RFID card is scanned, race staff look up the racer’s NASTAR record by last name or registration number, and the RF scan is added to the participant’s NASTAR record. The next time the racer enters the start, they are automatically loaded into the timing software.

NASTAR resorts update their databases each time they sync their systems to the NASTAR website; then the RFID numbers are added to the racer database. This means NASTAR RFID cards can be used at any NASTAR resort with an RF system.
