University's biological and agricultural seniors design robotic arm for crawfish harvesting

Crawfish harvesting is a way of life that goes back to the late 1800s in South Louisiana. It’s a skill handed down from generation to generation that not only keeps the tradition alive but also puts smiles on the faces of Louisianans who enjoy the fruits of the harvesters’ labor. Realizing the importance of this tradition, yet wanting to innovate it, a team of senior LSU Biological and Agricultural Engineering students recently designed a robotic arm that can help with the harvest.
