Connecting Two raspberry pis to the roborio for Vision


My team has 1 raspberry pi set up for targeting co processing and we want to set up another for ball tracking. However, the radio only has 2 ethernet ports and we have 3 devices to connect. Is there a good way to expand our ethernet capacity? If not, any ideas on how to get the data between the devices?

Add an Ethernet switch. There are USB-powered ones out there, or 5V powered ones you could power off a VRM, etc.

That was my first idea. Only question is, Will the switch then mess up the ip addresses of the pi making the web portal unusable?

Not as long as the Pis have different hostnames.

Why can’t you do this with a single Pi?

we are running a tensorflow lite model on one. Don’t want to overload it and start dropping frames.
