This is GravityWave's Scan class. It's still being expanded and debugged, but I feel it's good enough to release so newer people to Robocode have a nice Scan class with little effort on using it.

package hackhalotwo.utils;

import robocode.*; //Robocode stuff
import java.awt.geom.Point2D; //for Point2D stuff
import java.lang.System; //for outputing debug text

//Version 0.5

public class Scan {
	//Debug stuff
	private static final boolean debug = true; //set to true for debug text
	//Set up the main varibles for the class
	public static String _name;
	public static double _bearing;
	public static double _bearingR;
	public static double _distance;
	public static double _energy;
	public static double _heading;
	public static double _headingR;
	public static double _velocity;
	public static int _tick; //last scan tick
	//Enemy Stuff
	public static long bulletTick; //tick the bullet was fired on
	public static int nextFire; //when the enemy could fire again
	public static boolean canFire = false; //Can the Enemy fire?
	//Your Robot
	public static AdvancedRobot _robot; //Your robot
	//Location Stuff
	public static Point2D.Double _location; //Last Scan Location
	public static Point2D.Double _enemyLocation; //Enemy Location
	//Helper Varibles
	public static double absBearing; //Absolute Bearing
	public static double latVelocity; //Lateral Velocity
	public static double bulletPower; //Bullet Power and Distance Traveled
	//Inner class designed to be a placeholder for storing scans
	public class Scanner {
		public String name;
		public double bearing, bearingR, distance, energy, heading, headingR;
		public long tick;
		protected Scanner() { }
	public static void init(AdvancedRobot r) {
		_robot = r;
		_tick = (int)(_robot.getTime()); //set the time to correctly reduce ticks
		nextFire = 29; //since guns are hot at the begining of the round for 30 ticks (minus 1 for safety)
		canFire = false; //make sure it's set correctly
		//debug stuff
		if(debug) { System.out.println("Scan.class :: Scan.init(AdvancedRobot) called"); }
	public static void update(AdvancedRobot r, ScannedRobotEvent e) {
		//debug stuff
		if(debug) { System.out.println("Scan.class :: Scan.update(AdvancedRobot, ScannedRobotEvent) called"); }
		//update the varibles

			if(nextFire > 0) { //check to see how many ticks to take away
				nextFire -= (tick - _tick); //correctly reduce the number of ticks remaining
				if(nextFire < 0) { nextFire = 0; } //just in case
				if(debug) { System.out.println("Scan.class :: Time till enemy can fire again: "+ nextFire); }
			} else { canFire = true; }
		//update the scan tick
		_tick = tick;
		//set up some of the advanced functions
	public static void updateAdv() {
	public static void bulletFired(double power) {
		if(debug) { System.out.println("Scan.class :: Scan.bulletFired(time, power) called"); }
		bulletTick = _robot.getTime();
		//calculate the number of ticks until the next fire
		nextFire = (int)((1D + power / 5D)*10);
		canFire = false; //Set the boolean
		if(debug) { System.out.println("Scan.class :: "+nextFire+" ticks until enemy can fire again"); }

	public static boolean canFire() {
		if(canFire) { return true; }

	public static double calcTurn()
		{ return Math.PI/720d*(40d - 3d*Math.abs(_velocity)); }
