      • Testing wireless library - Abe
        • Unable to communicate between XBee dongle and robot
        • Have not tested robot-robot
      • Data Gathering - Chris
        • Wireless communication between robot and XBee dongle works after reverting wireless library to 887.
        • Something in the odometry interrupt makes motors not work. Could be floating point, will test further.
          • Workaround: update/revert trunk/code/projects/mapping/odometry to r947
