IRI Robot Photo Request

Hi all,

I have a request for folks attending IRI as I will not be able to make it.

If you have a pretty solid camera, I'd love to see close up and in depth shots of (if possible) each robot at IRI.

There is a serious lack of robot mechanism and subsystem photos archived in a central location since most teams on CD only post full robots.

If you're wondering what kinds of shots I'm referring to- think of the Behind the Design books - https://www.amazon.com/FIRST-Robots-.../dp/0692540628



Additionally - photos that highlight the following:
  • Custom manufactured parts
  • CNC'd parts and systems
  • Cool materials usage
  • Macro shots of neat wheels and gearboxes
  • Unique design elements
  • Detailed shots of intake mechanisms
  • Shooter mechanisms
  • Turret systems

I'd like to have a solid archive of these kinds of photos to update outdated training presentations. Please let me know if you'll be taking good, clear, high quality photos of robots and I'll make sure they are aggregated somewhere for public consumption.

Thanks,
Akash

I'll second Akash's request. I would love to have some of those photos to help teach about certain aspects of design.

Spectrum will putting together a gallery to help with this and thanks for the idea Akash we'll start tagging specific mechanisms and build up galleries for shooters, gear intakes, etc.

Anyone that wants to contribute IRI photos can upload them to this link. Spectrum will then tag items in the coming weeks with team numbers and mechanisms.

https://spectrum3847.smugmug.com/upload/V6w896/IRI2017

If you want to upload robot mechanism photos that aren't from IRI feel free to put them here.

Re: IRI Robot Photo Request

I messaged Akash this, but I'll also post it here- I'll be there with some 20/5254 mentors to spectate and I'll take some pictures (likely from my phone) while I'm there too. If anyone has anything in particular they want to see, feel free to message me.

This one has a few pics from Houston Champs/SoCal Regional Events. If people would like, I can put these in the link you shared or other people can add to this one.

There's a few links in there, I never put them all together since it was all in one thread, but it would be a good idea to do so.

Do you mind taking the photos linked in that thread and adding them to Allen's archive?

The biggest problem with subsystem and mechanism archives in the past has been that they are not kept up to date by the folks who decide to create a central archive. FIRST Canada had a great archive a few years back but no longer has it on their website.

For example - https://web.archive.org/web/20071122...0/site/node/96

If we can make Spectrum's site a maintained space that would be very helpful.

I had been collecting images for a game that I am creating and uploaded 116 of them to the non-IRI page. Image names are formatted as "teamnumber""mechanism"-"image credit".png. Some of the images were intended to be cropped, so they may be of less use to you. Hope this helps and won't be too much to figure out! I am looking forward to the final product and would be willing to help out if there was need.

We have also started tagging mechanism photos, we still have more to go but the initial galleries are ready.
