Introducing ScantronScouter

I've been working on a project for my team, and I'd like to share it with the community both for other teams to use and for people to suggest improvements.

Introducing ScantronScouter, the semi-paperless scouting method that only requires a single computer and flatbed scanner.

Check it out on GitHub at https://github.com/arimb/ScantronScouter.

Re: ScantronScouter

Awesome resource! For those seriously considering this system like we are, Team 5406 Celt-X has a really refined system that they use which is public on GitHub, it has a generator for the sheets and everything. I'm sure some from their team can go more in depth about it, but it's awesome

Can you please send a link for it? Unfortunately I cannot find it on your GitHub organization.

Re: ScantronScouter

It's in a different repository:
https://github.com/kForth/ClooneySheetGen

https://github.com/kForth/ClooneyScanner

"Clooney" was written by one of our mentors who isn't on CD, so I can't help with the details, but it is awesome. It really helped us act and feel like a legit competitive team. I'm also really proud of the students and alumni who've taken on the task of running it.

The scantronish system is nice because the scouts don't need any power or network, and if the scanning or data collection messes up, you always have a binder of the original scouting sheets. The downside is that printing 300ish sheets ahead of a tournament takes a bit of planning and cost.

I've attached a copy of the 2018 sheet for your interest.

Re: ScantronScouter

I thought I would post an update here in case anyone was actually interested in using this.

Students on my team were not looking forward to converting every match and team number into binary for marking on the scantron sheets. The solution that one of the students came up with was to download the match schedule from The Blue Alliance before the competition starts, then use a combination of the 2.5 digit* match number and the alliance station position to look up the corresponding team number from the schedule. The program still works without any internet, bluetooth, or other conenctions at competition, now you just need an internet connection some time the night before the competition starts to download the schedule.** This method could also be modified in the future to download other information from TBA on teams' previous competitions to include in the scouting data sheet. The GitHub repo has been updated with the new program(s).


* 2 digits for ones and tens, plus a single box for +100. Since no competition over 199 matches, there's no need for a third digit row.
** At this point, the format for the TBA data (match schedule) is very simple. If you forgot to do it before arriving at competition and don't have an internet connection, you could input it by hand from the physical copy.
