    • Call Dan Shope now AND after meeting
    • Autonomous charging
  • Line-following
    • Can we get the MUX to sit flat?
      • 90-degree connector
      • Shorter Wires
      • lower angle attaching to MUX
      • solder wires directly to MUX
    • Finish mounting sensors
      • We have a bunch of wires made, have all the parts, and holes drilled in many robots. (Thanks Alex L.)
      • Drill more holes and mount parts.
    • Time to start higher-level behaviors
      • We will have new sensors on multiple robots soon, and they are getting good readings.
      • Volunteers to work on behaviors?
  • New wireless
    • Ben is testing a new library with easier send/receive functions.
Our library doesn't compile from scratch?
