The wheels on the cover page are on the wrong direction. But it looks good, where will this be available?

I see a glimpse of our control board!

This could be for the delphi award probably.

Re: pic: FIRST Robots: Behind the Design (Cover)

VERY Full size image available here btw:

http://www.chiefdelphi.com/media/img...1d2fa39f_l.jpg

As for my assesment of what's in the pictures as follows left to right & top to bottom:

Row 1: Autocad drive train layout > Omniwheel > Globe Motor mounted > Circuit board layout > Autocad Cheese holes > Dewalt drill motor mounted > Omniwheel

Row 2: CMU Camera mount box sketch > (maybe my team's) Pneumatic Skyway wheel mounted (for our turret drive?) > Orange Poly cord ball feeder system> Frame layout Sketch > Team 418's bot > Drive train with Right angle gear mesh > Chain drive > Skyway Hub

Row 3: Globe motor ball drive sketch > Team 225's bot > Solidworks sketch (with gridlines turned on ) > 2 speed drive system > Drill motor > POOF BALLS!! > IFI Logo > Gears > Green Poly cord ball feeder system

Row 4: Turret > Gear drive chalk board sketch > Velocity Calculations > Random PWM and motor wires > Operator Control box > Team 191 > AutoCAD or ORCAD Electrical schematics.

And then Royal Assault's (mirrored image) Chassis.

That's some quality stuff right there.

32 images, 30 teams. Who's in??? I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Re: pic: FIRST Robots: Behind the Design (Cover)

Here is an example of the book contents - 2 of the 10 pages on Team 357.



As I get additional examples from the publisher, I'll share them with Chief Delphi readers. My intent is to share some images of the work to better help teams strengthen their submissions for the 2007 book. As you can see, clear images are a must-have, and the images need to be of the creative aspects of the design. Since teams will start winning awards next week, these pages should give an idea of the type of images to gather if you want to make it into the 2007 edition of the book.

The book is now listed on Rockport's website, complete with Stephanie’s bio and a link back to Chief Delphi.
FIRST Design Book at Rockport Publishers web site

Students could take a copy of the web page to their school librarian and ask the librarian to get a copy. There are certainly a number of other robot books out there in addition to this one that could be requested to update a school's collection of robot materials in the library.

Cheers – Vince

P.S. Just to be in the open on this - Neither Stephanie nor I am are getting any commission or kick-back based on book sales. While the publisher did pay us a modest sum to assemble the book, Stephanie and I do not financially benefit by the book's sales performance.

My goal is to help teams better understand the book so that they can assemble strong submissions for the next issue. The more that FIRST teams and others support the project, the better the chances are this project to expand FIRST.

These are my personal views on the process and plans.

I am on vacation from work today and as such this post is not a conflict of interest between the day job and the FIRST hobby. Updating the Chief Delphi community is a lot more fun than shoveling snow (which I should be doing).
