my team would like to use the following ESP32 microcontroller: http://anleitung.joy-it.net/?goods=nodemcu-esp32
It is capable of Wifi and Bluetooth which have to be proven disabled for each run.
Since these functionalities are integrated into the chip we can’t disable them on the hardware side. We are concerned a local referee might not allow this chip since he can’t ensure we won’t use these functionalities in the code.
As to this we would like to now whether we are allowed to use the micocontroller in general and in that case how we might be able to prove that we aren’t using Bluetooth or WiFi in the runs, more specifically what we are expected to do.
A more general question we have additionally is whether answers in the forum are obligatory for local referees. We want to make sure that answers are definitive.
