Challenge 1: Demonstrate range of motion and end effector: The robotic arm has three motors that make up the 3 joints. The two large motors move the arm to a position and the medium motor picks the marker up and down.

End Effector:

Challenge 2 and 3: Manually move the arm and record the position of the arm through Python code. Have the robot play back the positions.

The robotic arm is connected to a button so that the user can input when to record the position. The button is also used to calibrate the position of the robotic arm before manually moving the robot to the desired positions. The robot draws dots where the positions were recorded.
