Outdoor pool test and active grabber

Thanks to Kevin Markwardt and the Ithaca Swim Club for letting us take pictures of the mission elements in their pool! From 8-9am this morning, we got to test our vision algorithms in bright sunlight in preparation for TRANSDEC. All of them work well with only a little extra tuning. Also, the active grabber went on Tachyon for last night's pool test. After removing a few teeth that were causing it to grab too well, it picked up and dropped successfully several times in a mission. We will continue to work with it to improve reliability in both grabbing and releasing today and tomorrow. Two pool tests left before Tachyon ships!
