FRC Scout is an award winning application that runs on the Android OS. It is a modular/configurable scouting tool which allows teams to define a customized set of data to collect at competitions. Multiple users can collect and store data to a centralized database from their Android phones. Data can be sorted and queried in a number of ways to allow teams to identify their pick lists for alliance selections. This application was completely developed by one of our team's programming students and has been used by approximately 500 teams this season!
