dc.description.abstract <p>Quadcopters have been in operation for several years and have mostly been used for aerial photography. The Quadcopter can perform additional functions if their development is furthered towards specific tasks. This projects seeks to enhance Quadcopter function by developing a mechanical arm to grab objects at altitudes beyond the reach of humans or serve in place of humans in dangerous conditions. The arm design was initially performed through computer-aided drafting (CAD) software. Upon completion of the design, the mechanical arm will be tested independently and then fixed to a quadcopter and tested in flight. The results will provide a foundation for increasing the use of quadcopters, such as the harvesting of fruit from trees or perform repair operations on structures with high elevation.</p>
