After a lot of tinkering and far too many prototypes it is official now: We have a working cup grabber, we call the ARM (we’re working on something this can be an abbreviation for) of the robot. Because one of our challenges is to move some cups from the outside of the arena, we have to lift them first. The way we achieve this is by clamping the cups between an extrusion and a small stick and then lifting the whole extrusion, which allows us to drop each cup individually and gives us the chance to gain more points. The whole lifting apparatus for elevating the extrusion which holds the little grabbers is still in design, but we’re working on it.
