In order to limit the wiring of the photo eyes back to the roborio, we used our sentinel board to receive the signal wires, its available at andymark. You can see the red board on the talon in the picture.

Thanks for sharing and its definitely really cool, but to be honest I'm still pretty confused how it actually works. Do you have any documentation on the process for designing it? Maybe a video of a later rev prototype or maybe one of you cad students is like me and makes animations of layout sketches? I'd love to get a better sense of how the mechanism works and your process in designing it.
