IROS 2020 – Easy link to papers

So IROS is on demand this year – virtual and online. There’s a lot of content there, maybe I’ll write up some highlights when I’m done going through it all. Anyway there’s a problem browsing this content in that if you add interesting talks to your list, then are working through your list – you can’t get at the paper PDF from the talk video page! Madness.

Anyway, here’s a fix. Create a bookmark in your bookmarks bar with the following code – it’s a bookmarklet that’ll open the paper for the current IROS video in a new tab.

javascript:(function()%7B%20var%20mp4%20=%20document.getElementsByTagName(%22source%22)%5B0%5D.getAttribute(%22src%22);%20var%20paperid%20=%20mp4.match(/%5B0-9%5D%7B4%7D/);%20var%20newurl%20=%20'https://ras.papercept.net/proceedings/IROS20/'+paperid+'.pdf';%20window.open(newurl)%20%7D)();
