Hand vs Arm

We follow the same convention as in human beings :), and there is a difference between hand and arm. The hand is the manipulator, the instrument at the end of the arm. 

Servo motors for the arm

Two servo motors are controlling the hand. They are connected to the servo block. The servo motor has a "position" of 0 and 1. When the hand has grabbed something on of the servo motors is at position 1 and the other at position 0.
