Botball Live 2013 Announced

Jeremy Rand's picture

Hello Botballers! YAC has been hard at work improving the Botball Live experience for the 2013 regional season. With the Oklahoma tournament under 2 days away, we're excited to announce the 2013 Botball Live!

Reliability has been an issue for Botball Live since the start. This year, cameras are using wired connections rather than Wi-Fi. We expect this to improve stream stability significantly. The entire backend has been redone to give us the ability to do some really cool stuff, which we hope to release in full at GCER, or maybe sooner. ;-) As with any computer system, it is subject to Murphy's Law, but we're hopeful that the new system will be more successful than previous years.

We've also been working on better ways to see the results. YAC is excited to announce the beta release of the Team Tracker. Initially demoed at GCER 2012, the Team Tracker allows you to easily look through results of current or old tournaments. The Team Tracker is based on ideas from former YAC member Jake Hall, was initially coded by YAC VP of Technology Jeremy Rand (Team SNARC), is currently maintained by YAC member Marty Rand (Norman Advanced Robotics), and was beta tested by Daniel Goree (Norman Advanced Robotics). Huge thanks to Jake, Jeremy, Marty, and Daniel for this. Remember, this is a beta release -- there will be bugs, and some features are just plain missing. The Twitter and Joust results systems are still available.

Our first event will be the Oklahoma regional tournament on March 9. Other events will be announced as they get closer. Remember, if you have any feedback anytime during the season on what we can be doing better, post it on the forums. We will also have a YAC Feedback Session at GCER 2013, where Botballers can give YAC suggestions/feedback.

Enjoy the streams!
