But as that's all you asked for, you newer software programmers could generate such in a few days.
I'm big on embedded computing so I can see this with a switch that detects the lift is up or down and that is sent to the computer and at some point you need to get a look at the car on the lift. Your average mechanic may not be too keen to tap the car job number in so maybe a netbook webcam that runs that app will take a few pictures at some timed interval as the switch changes state?
Is there any software that tracks how long a car stays lifted on a shop lift or software that does a similar job? So far, all I've seen are programs for billiards and the like. Any input would be appreciated. Thank you.
