Robot Arm
I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction.
I have to build and program a robot arm that has to navigate from point A to point B and "touch" a block at point B. Point B's coordinates will be provided through user input.

Is there any information or pre-written code available for this application???
My coding is somewhat... elementary

I am afraid your explanation is somewhat...elementary as well

How will the robot move? Wheels? Tracks?
Will there be obstacles in the robot's way?
How are the coordinates determined?
How will the robot determine its position?
Are there markers on the floor, wall or somewhere else that can be used by the robot to see where it is?

We're going to need a whole lot more info, those questions above are just a start. The more info you give is, the better we can help you. As for pre-written code, hrmm, I wouldn't bet on it

Regards,
Xander

He also mentioned the word navigate Hence my questions. A robot arm on tracks of wheels is not completely unheard of
