My team and I would like to put together a fairly conprehensive dashboard system to be run on a laptop during competition. How should we go about doing this?

Well, it depends what you want to do with the Dashboard. Most people found the Dashboard fairly useless last year. I have some C/C++ code that will read from the Dashboard and it's available at the link below. If you want to write your own from scratch you can use the documentation provided on the InnovationFIRST web site.

Also, I am working on a new version of my Dashboard Decoder OCX, based on the new specifications that I recieved from Innovation First in New Hampshire this past weekend. More information will be coming after I get it tested...

We've also pondered this... our scouts and strategists are going crazy with their calculating and whatnot, but they've suggested using the readouts from the dashboard to assist a digital playbook for the mentors
