In professional competitions, the important issue in scoring is accuracy and precision,electronic dartboards come out.
Electronic dartboards are the newest innovation to the sport, they keep score automatically and settle many a dispute with cold hard logic.
Electronic dart boards provide the convenience of tallying a player’s score during a game eliminating the need for the tedious chalk markings.
Electronic dart boards work by with a set of sensors that detect the area where a dart has landed. These areas have been pre-programmed with a corresponding score. When a dart hits the board, a sensor goes off and sends the information to a simple computer attached to the dartboard. The computer in turn displays the score and tallies it with the other previous hits.
Given their more sensitive nature, most electronic dart board works with soft tip darts.
