FRC Scout

FRC Scout


FRC Scout is a scouting system for FIRST Robotics. With this handy Android app (look for a computer version soon!) you will no longer need to use gratuitous amounts of paper or spend all night entering data into computers, you can do it all from the stands!! Unlike any other mobile scouting app, FRC Scout allows you and your team to define your own data points you wish to track teams by, allowing you a custom set of facts and figures that will be most helpful to you and your team specifically!

You can choose to keep track of teams based on a number, such as score or height or speed, or a predefined text option such as style ("Offensive, "Defensive".) This is unique to FRC Scout and will give your team the most control over how you scout.

Every numeric data point will even be graphed (thanks to Arno den Hond for the graphing code!) against the average of that data point for all teams, so you can compare trends in how an individual team is doing in comparison to all the teams there; is a team improving or doing worse, or is that just everyone?

FRC Scout will even import all teams from a competition of your choosing, so that you don't have to spend ages entering team numbers the night before. And for each of these teams you can take pictures of them so that you will be able to point out special features of competing robots that a data set may not capture.

All teams can be ranked by the total, average, smallest, or largest number of any numerical data points you choose, so that you can see what teams are best in what areas - largest speed, smallest height, average score, total score, anything you decide!! You can also keep track of matches and view data points from that specific match.

FRC Scout strides to allow the user to define the way their team scouts at competitions instead of locking you into a set method the developer thought best; it's up to you how you scout!! On top of all of this, FRC Scout will even predict a hypothetical match of 6 teams you enter based on previous data!

v2.0 - Added option editing/deletion, automatic match gathering/latest match tracking, fixed crashes on screen rotation during background tasks (on older devices, a known error is still in some newer versions of Android where orientation changes can potentially crash the app, as well as a bug in Android that prevents some versions from being able to take pictures.)

v1.1.1 - Fixed classNotFound error on older devices

v1.1 - Fixed stack overflow in rankings that was popping up on some devices as well as several other minor bugs

Recent changes:
v2.2 - Fixed several bugs, including the crash on future competitions issue many users were experiencing. I have contacted the source of my data about providing team listings for future events but until then the app cannot provide teams for future events.

v2.1 - Fixed two minor crashes caused on certain platforms, as well as corrected team number displays in the event viewer for small screen/high density devices.

It is an awesome app! You can add in options for how you scout and can rank teams using those options. It even has the option to predict matches!
