Video timing system for racing cars... is this possible?


I was wondering if it is possible to make a timing system for racing cars using opencv. As I donĀ“t have any idea of opencv, I post this questions for experienced people.

The problem: - Car speed 100 to 150Km/h

The idea is to put 1 camera on finish lane, track the car and read the car number (or may be a custom graphic code easier to recognize). Then stamp a time to calculate the lap time.

The big question is: how fast can an application with opencv do that?

Thank you!
