Rover Arm Module

I know some people have been asking how we plan to pick up rocks at Robo-Ops.  Until now that was a mystery but we have decided to unveil it….  Here is the CAD model with our arm module on the rover and another of just the arm module.  All the parts are being made right now and we expect to be testing it in about a week.  We were very temped to wait to pick up our first rock until 10 minutes before the competition as it worked so well for us last year…  just kidding… the honest story is that we have been very busy finishing up stuff for graduation and have been working on the arm steadily and just got to where we could start manufacturing in the past few days.  We look forward to several full weeks of testing with the entire system so we can get in some good practice.
