OOOH!!!!

Maybe my dream of a more field oriented positioning system is coming true!!!

Maybe, on the field, there are IR emitters all over the place, each giving off a different code. You can use the IR receiver to pick up these codes, and tell where your robot is.

YES

Ed, I just sent you part of the CAD. Tooling holes are noted for mounting. Can't say much more than that for now.

thanks,

Maybe this is a suppliment for the colored beacons. They are mounted on the robot and interpreted by the video equipment. Video processing is done to place special icons over the robots on the screen indicating their alliance. Like is done is some sporting events.

This would make for a more TV friendly game.

Must be to be able to be mounted to the Kitty O Parts.
Or.. wait.. do they need aditional sensors to see in the dark?
They already have plenty of them. http://www.machinebrain.com/images/omroncat.jpg
But, none-the-less, I'm impressed. The ability to hardwire an electronic device into a kitty? Very cool.
Gotta love FIRST for always keeping us on the cutting edge of technology.

I wonder if they will just clone the cats to be able to give one to every team, or just have us get one locally as a C.A.T.S. Item?

I like!!! Although some regionals are still a few pixels short of having a broadcast, this would help a lot. This would even benefit the team webcasts out there. Which leads me to a question that didn't get answered in the specialty forums.

[hijak=thread] For those who do live streams, what equipment and software do teams use? I was looking at Sony's XDCam series and it's accessories, though we aren't there financially. Wireless transmitters? Onboard mics, handheld, or booms? How much in total did your media solution cost?[/hijak]

My equipment (computers, switches, routers, scan converter, monitors, KVM switch, capture card, connecting cables, audio mixer, mics, and domain name) cost about $1200 or so.
I didn't buy the cameras, but for a professional one they start at about $700 for a good one.
As for software windows 2003 includes the media server, and the encoder is free to download from the microsoft web site. Also Ubuntu Linux and VLC can be used to web cast.

Seems like everyone is forgetting that these are IR receivers as opposed to transmitters. They can only read signals, not send them.

Didn't forget!! Just hadn't seen the web site before I posted. The IR identifier would still be cool!!

I'm liking the idea of couch potato human players now that I've read what this thing is!

Maybe the human players are on the other side of the field giving secondary commands to the robot.

or... Better yet your alliance partner is on the other side of the field and they give your robot commands/information about strategy.


or... The robots communicate with each other to accomplish a specific multi step task like lifting the third member of the alliance.

or... or... or...
