Test Result: Buckyball In Bone
IMG_3839.JPGWe were able to successfully get the buckeyball into the bone three of the times that we tried it.  Right now our only problem is that the ball sometimes gets trapped in the arm and can't be released. We need to work on this a little more to fine tune it.  Our Next Action would be to find a way to successfully carry and dump the ball.
Test Name:  Buckeyball in Bone
What we Learned:  Our arm, or the attachment for our arm, is too low to successfully dump the buckeyball without getting caught.
Challenges:  It is incredibly hard to aim the robot, we need to program it in such a way that we can use one of the markers provided.  
Next Action:  Either shorten the arm or move the tray.
