With the nearly infinite combinations of hardware and software allowed in the Open Division, controlling four robots to start and stop in sync creates a need for specialized hardware. Athena enters in as that custom solution. The Athena Field Controller is a mobile app driven field management system that allows the tournament official to launch matches efficiently and effectively. Gone are the days of requiring dedicated power and network cables to be run to every field. The Athena Field Controller comes self-contained in a single briefcase that can be set up in minutes.
