Test Result: Unstick Nanotip
IMG_3822.JPGOur next test involved the stuck nanotip. After extensive amount of experimenting and documenting our tests, we concluded that our arm was not strong enough to lift the nanotip. This is probably because the arm is incredibly long to serve in the other missions. To complete this mission, we will have to shorten our arm. One good thing is that we seemed to have corrected our problem of veering to the left. This was a recurring problem we had in our previous robot.  Our next action is to either strengthen or shorten our arm.
Test Name: Unstick Nanotip
What we Learned:  Our arm is both too long and too weak to complete this mission.
Challenges:  We need to find a way to shorten or strengthen our arm without affecting the other missions.
Next Action:  Build a stronger attachment for the arm.
