Todays class was focused towards trying to add additions to the robots features now that the base was finished. We decided perviously that scoring rings on the pegs would be a secondary objective, so we started to build an arm for the robot. We came across a problem when building the arm, realizing that the piece that we were going to use might be too heavy for our servo controller to fix. We spent the rest of the class brainstorming other ideas for arms, and whether or not we would use an arm, or use a part of the lifting mechanism in order to score pegs.
