Firebase Connection

Can I use my phone as a hotspot so our tablets can send information to firebase each match is over?

From Rules & Expextations for FIRST Robotics Competition Events:

and

You will not be allowed to use a wireless hotspot during competition as that can affect the robots connection with the FMS and driver stations during matches. You can, however, give a wired hotspot connection to a laptop which then can give internet access to the tablets via Bluetooth internet access. It will give as many connection as the laptop’s internal Bluetooth can hold. You will need to use Bluetooth usb dongles to extend your latops number of connections.

Hope this helps!
