Articulated Cord Delivery System JME 4110
The device we are proposing to build will be remotely controlled and will be loaded with an extension cord wrapped on a spool at the start point. From there it will be driven to until the cord is fully unwound. It will then be driven back to the start point to have another spool loaded in. The device will then drive back to the end of the first cord. A mechanism on the device will pick up the end of first cord as the device drives over it and connect it to the second cord. From there the device will drive until the second cord is unwound and then return to the start point.
