Looking for match statistics for Engineering Project

Hi, I am a 3rd year engineering student pursuing my degree in Mechatronic Engineering at CSU Chico. I am currently enrolled in an engineering focused economics and statistics class which requires an end of the semester decision analysis project. Having participated in the FIRST FRC program for three years at my high school and now just finishing my third year of mentoring during the 2012 season I am interested in using the FRC competition and general robot design process as a background for the project stated above.

To be brief, "The project should develop and document at least least 3 competing alternatives (design choices) from which you will demonstrate the best decision (based on maximum expected value or utility)".

In order to complete this project I need relevant data (match statistics) that could potentially prove or disprove a design idea (ie. a manipulator design or shooter mechanism).

It would be great if teams could provide match statistics from the most recent game (2012 Rebound Rumble) from across the various regionals around the world, the more the better.

If anyone has any other input that would be greatly appriciated. Thanks

TL;DR I need statistics match data from the most recent regional events.

Re: Looking for match statistics for Engineering Project

To start off, there are some great resources in the white pages section of the forums. Also, try to look through a few scouting databases that have been uploaded over the past year in there. I know that many teams do post up their scouting databases with a vast amount of information.

As for teams, if you plan on doing this year, I would focus on a flywheel based robot (25, 233, 148, ect.), launching robot (16, 488, ect.) and finally a arm/dumping robot (330, ect.)

I can try my best to get you data from CVR and Archimedes of this year.

Re: Looking for match statistics for Engineering Project

A device that will have relativley high correlation to design and field success would be Balance assist devices (Stingers or otherwise) and their ability to complete triple balances.

With the highest scores I have seen this year being under 120 before penalties, it is pretty easy analysis to show that a 40 point balance that requires less than 1/3 of the 2:15 match (45 seconds) would have a great return on investment. As most winning alliance matches had score in the 90s or lower, the return is even better.

The devices also often had relatively low weight usually between 2 and 10 lbs of a 120 lb robot.
