Hi, I am probably very late to this topic. But I was going through some matches from the midwest 2020 regional, and I noticed that many of the top teams at that regional opted not to put the Zebra tags onto their robot. I am assuming that this was done because Zebra tags just give up a lot of information on your robot. From a competitive standpoint, it’s simply always the wrong choice to put Zebra on your robot, especially if you film your own matches, as I know my team did for several years.
However, there is still a lot that can be learned from this data, and I know I missed a lot of teams who I would like to see the Zebra data on. I think to combat this, the Zebra data should be collected, but only released after the competition is done. This way, you don’t undermine the work of teams who try to be competitive, or who try to have complex scouting systems, but also allow this data to be seen and to be analyzed, without needing to worry about if a team will choose to put the tag or not.
