Default Flagtronics in car race flagging system

In car flagging is here, www.flagtronics.com .


A non-comprehensive list of benefits:
  • Fills in coverage holes between flag stations.
  • Gets dangerous cars who are unresponsive to black flags off track
  • Improve all drivers flag observation percentage
  • Helps first time novice drivers (lemons/champcar/hpde/etc) avoid wrecks
  • Allows messages to dangerous drivers red misting around track
  • Greatly improves night flagging
  • Greatly improves low visibility flagging in conditions like fog or heavy rain
  • Allows flagging when drivers line of sight to flag stand is obscured
  • Capable of notifying race control of a stopped car or wreck
  • Gives team flag information in the pits for improved strategy & safety
  • Capable of providing blue flag to improve safety passing
  • Pit Timer capability
  • Pit speed Warning
  • Emergency services may be dispatched to accident
  • Tow truck may be dispatched to disabled vehicle
  • Purple Flag speed warning (VIR 35 as example)
  • Color Blind supplementation as many color blind drivers can't distinguish existing flags
  • Avoid Black Flag confusion where multiple cars pit for the Black flag event of one car
What do y'all think?

The moment NASA implements this, I'll buy a system and integrate it into my dash.

This is an awesome idea. It'd be awesome to see one common protocol. There's FlagTronics, Flagger (apparently), Delphi's Yellow Light System (IMSA, $350 if you can figure out how to buy one), FIA apparently has one as well.

NASA nationals in 2014 at Sonoma already had something really similar to this. You downloaded an app on your phone and it would display flags.
