For the past couple of years, Team 3489 has created a mobile app for capturing scouting information. Last year, we used Internet-over-Bluetooth to get internet connectivity to our six tablets so that they could push data to Firebase. Unfortunately, the Bluetooth connections kept silently dropping, which is a problem when you’re trying to capture information in real-time!
We’re trying to set up a Raspberry Pi and Ethernet solution this year, but have run into issues with not quite enough networking knowledge to pull it off. For a deeper explanation of what we’re trying to do, what hardware we have, and what we’ve already tried, check out our post on the Raspberry Pi forums: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=205779
If you have suggestions for us, feel free to reply on the Raspberry Pi forum or on this forum… I’ll be checking both places. Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge with us! Go teams!
