Crane Assessment, Challenge Day.

The Crane

This morning, we took part in the crane challenge assessment. I felt it went very successfully, we managed to move five of the six matchboxes, being the most successful group using a micro-controller. We were also the only group to move more than one match box in one single lift. Having observed all the groups today, I believe the combination of servo motors and potentiometers gave us a good level of accurate control, which was not afforded by the combination of switches and standard motors. Given more time, I would focus on developing the arm length of the crane to give us more reach.
