Gears are ready-to-use applications that automate routine tasks, including metadata extraction, classification, quality assurance, format conversion, and full analytic pipelines.
The Installed Gears page lists all gears available to run on your site. You can add gears in two ways: installing ready-to-use Gears from the Gear Exchange or by developing and uploading your own Gear.
The Gear Exchange is a curated collection of Gears maintained by Flywheel. These gears are made available through the contributions of Flywheel employees, customers, and members of the broader research community.
Browse the the Gear Exchange for more information, and contact Flywheel Support to add these Gears to your site (note: only Site Admins can install Gear Exchange gears).
If none of the Gear Exchange Gears fit your needs, you can also develop your own custom gear to upload to your site. See our Gear Developer tutorial for more information on how to build your first gear.
