Rounding errors could make certain stopwatches pick wrong race winners
(American Institute of Physics) Obtaining split-second measurements relies on faultlessly rounding a raw time recorded by a stopwatch or electronic timing system to a submitted time. Researchers at the University of Surrey found certain stopwatches commit rounding errors when converting raw times to final submitted times. In American Journal of Physics, they outline a series of computer simulations based on procedures for converting raw race times for display. (Source: EurekAlert! - Social and Behavioral Science)
