View Full Version : What data do you want to see on bots?

Sorry, this isn't a thread saying anything about a robot, but rather a thread to get some input.

Right now, team 201 (www.feds201.com) is working hard to build a scouting hub / robot profile section with other teams.

Once one member registers for the site, they will receave a section for their team. They can update this section as often as they want. It will have a section with questions about what the bot can do, what awards has the bot/team won, a free comment section, and finally a link section to link either to another site with more data or to pictures. (stored off our site) There will also be data displayed on that page like, which regionals is the team attending, and what scouting data has been collected on them. There also will be a poll section in which people can vote on how well they think an aspect of the robot is. And... hopefully, there will be some pretty cool CD intergration.

My question to you is:

What would you all like to see in the 'What can the bot do / structured bot info' section.

Drive System : 2 wheel ; 4 wheel ; 6 wheel ; swirve (sp?) dirve ; other.

As you can see, there is a question/system then with a drop down box of choices. I would like to know what you people would like to see as the questions and then choices for them.

I would be more interested in knowing teams' strategies. SOmething like:
Strategy- claw, box pusher, ramp blocker, stacker, box tosser, etc.
But whatever you do, make sure that "combination" isnt an answer choice. Or if it is, make them choose what the combination is. Otherwise, its just useless, ambiguous information. Another cool thing to know might be "Special abilities," like: go under bar, suction to ramp, shift gears, levitate....
