Citrus Circuits 2016 Scouting System White Paper
by: William Frost
Technical overview of the Citrus Circuits 2016 Scouting System.
Team 1678 is proud to announce the release of a white paper on our 2016 scouting system!
The most successful iteration of our electronic scouting system yet, it allowed for seamless, real-time data collection, processing, and visualization within the constraints of live competition. The system was used by our strategy and drive teams for determining match strategy and alliance selection and overcame many of the limitations of the 2015 system (https://www.chiefdelphi.com/media/papers/download/4485). This white paper covers the physical requirements of the system, detailed technical writeups on each of the six component applications, and a summary of the calculations used in processing the collected data. In addition, 1678’s entire scouting process from offseason to Championships is summarized.
This system was a key factor in enabling 1678 to reach Einstein field this year, and previous iterations have contributed significantly to our team’s achievements. We believe that an electronic scouting system can be a powerful tool in helping other teams to achieve a new level of competitive success. In addition, such as system provides incredible learning opportunities for both programmers and strategists.
