Coroware Corobot module variables

I was wondering if you can give me more detail about how the arm_x and arm_y values are calculated based on shoulder and elbow values (CoroWare_CoroBot module).
How do the x and y axes related to the CoroBot arm and the CoroBot deck, or the robot itself? Basically, how is the x and y coordinate system defined? After a bunch of experimentation it still doesn't seem to make sense.

Thank you,

Most likely what has happened is that the configuration that was used to create the module is no longer what is on the CoroBot. They constantly change the configuration both electrically, software and hardware.

Can you verify that the lower arm length is 7.25 inches and the upper arm length is  8.00 inches in the version that you have?

Indeed, the configuration has changed. Our robot has the following dimensions: the shoulder to elbow distance is 7 3/8" and the elbow to gripper is 6 7/8".
