Meet the drag and drop robot.

"Dropbot" was developed in a "one week mechatronic morkshop" at the HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd. Our goal was, to programm the robot to his own work flow, without human influence. We aligned three wood-blocks and numbered them "one", "two" and "three". His task was to drag an drop the blocks to an other place, but in the end, the order has to be exact the same. To complete this task, he had to store the blocks "three" and "two" at another place.
This progression got stuck in an infinite loop.
