HI all,

Exciting news - our last endeavor on PAAMI is to get the can lifing arm and gripper working. This weekend I added the lexan gripper, driven by one tiny servo, and the arm which is a pivoting horseshoe shaped bar that pivots over the top of the robot, over the beacon dome and lowers the gripper to the position the can is supposed to be in eventually. Im controlling it manually right now with a servo driver box, but after I refine the mechanism, which works darn well right now, Ill wire it to the motherboard and start the final level of subsumtion, the can grab and deposit level. Videos to come soon!
