The system using mobile technologies to test reaction time


Reaction time to a light or sound stimulus is an important element of life. Constructing and testing a measuring device for collecting the response time stimulus focused on two study groups. The results which were obtained showed that people who specialize in sports have 0.15 seconds, better time than people who do not professionally deal with sport. Be tested for both groups with additional verification (stopwatch) confirmed the measuring apparatus along with the application.
