    Default How are Jemba Notes Made?

    So how exactly are Jemba notes made? I am told it is some sort of computer program.....but is it just a platform that reads mileage in and records input from someone like they are making pacenotes? Or is it some sort of system that reads vehicle input and speed etc? Enquiring minds want to know.....er at least mine does.

    Do a search, first off, but basically - it's a 3D accelerometer, attached to a laptop computer. Off-cambers, small crests, and some other features are added manually, but all the corners are created via the accelerometer input to the computer.

    Yep, add to the list of componets a Coralba odo to measure the distances (straight away distances, cumulative milages and distances of curves (short, long, very long, ....) and vehicle speed to calculate the accellerometer data accordingly, a keypad to enter instructions that the accellerometer cannot determine (cautions, junctions, waterbars, bridges,...) and a printer to print notes to edit while re-checking subsquent passes of stage. The laptop is just to record the info. Also, the odo is wired into a reverse light on the car's taillights to know if the car is in reverse.

    Its neat stuff. Sounds easy but there is a lot of work that goes into creating, editing, the printed final copy (done in different programs; Windows and DOS)and introduction (a page of text details that describe overall road conditions and the weather conditions and date the notes were made so that teams know how the roads may have changed since that time).

    And a lot of human input on things that the computer can't know like 'road narrows', 'over bridge', etc., and lots of time spent looking at road and curve combinations to say 'hmmmm, that's a tricky combination or situation; that deserves a caution (or 2 or 3...)'.

    Lol. You guys are dorks. :-) I'm curious, how much does it cost a typical event to have Jemba notes produced?

    How long is a piece of string?
    Too many factors to have a 'typical' event.
    I'd suggest that at $165/car and 30 cars buying them, that RA is loosing money on the jemba notes as a rule.

    Hey Mikey, make sure you get your import licence first so you can bring it into the country!
