This years scouters are working on creating a scouting system that will be able to record all information in a database as the competition progresses rather than after it ends. This will allow us to make decisions at a competition based on the data from that same competition. We plan to do this by using the network being built in the pit to also house the scouting data. Scouting information will be gathered on paper during matches and talking with members of the teams, then recorded onto a computer that temporarily holds the data. Whenever possible, the information will be dumped into the central database. We can then use the computer to calculate the teams that may be the most interesting to us from all the gathered data.
