Polar Arm with Arduino

Created by Alessandro G.

EXPLAINED: A way of drawing inputted data with high accuracy on paper with a swivel polar arm creation

CHOSEN: This project was chosen because it could be modified to clean a whiteboard table in designated areas if an eraser was added. It could even deal with specific commands if we decided to move into having it coordinate with a camera.

CRITIQUED: This project does an efficient job of using having a simple angle and radius controlling system but having very accurate results. I think the documentation could have been better such as no outside noises, like a baby, in the background and better camera handling. Overall it displays the concept of the project very well.
