Operating System

Rei Pro operating system is based on a customized version of Linux that uses Yocto Project Framework optimized for embedded systems.

User Interface/User eXperience

We made a big effort to make Rei Pro simpler, easier and faster but at the same time we tried to maintain continuity in the basic concepts and in the philosophy (very innovative at that time) introduced 15 years ago with Rei2. Therefore, the learning and training efforts made by the Rei2 users aren’t vain and both new and old users will take advantage in the following areas:

Better menu browsing

  • Icons and descriptive text
  • Touch browsing
  • Dedicated icons for :
    • Synchronization
    • Hardware test
    • Configurations

Easier settings and configuration

  • Status bar and navigation pane
  • Breadcrumb to always know in which menu we are
  • Dedicated icons with specific colors (e.g. red=synchronization, green=settings, orange=test)
  • User friendly controls (slider, toggle, dropdown)
  • Configuration portability (xml file than can be copied from a Rei Pro to another)

Operational continuity for REI2 users

  • START-LAP-STOP areas as in REI2
  • In addition to the existing function keys F1...F5, we added 6 side function keys with specific function (A…F)
  • We added a MENU key

Fast Edit

A new and fast timing events correction mode: touch on FastEdit (or press the function key E), touch on the event type Start/Lap/Stop (or keys A/B/C), touch on the line you have to edit and add the Bib number through the keyboard.

PC Simulator

Thanks to the cross-platform architecture of the development environment we used, the same software that runs on Rei Pro can be run on a PC Windows/Macintosh/Linux platform (at this moment only available on Windows x86 and x64, version 7/8/10). Besides the display form that can be controlled by mouse and keyboard, also the printer ports, the serial ports and two windows for the starting list and the ranking can be simulated.
Very useful for demonstration, training, test or just for getting a preview...
