Continued progressing on two fronts — Boudreaux behavior debugging (moving forward with obstacle avoidance) and the ATV driver simulating a robot with visual touch screen display showing commands directed to the robot. Boudreaux has now made two runs to Pooh’s Corner; now testing the laser obstacle avoidance system for the first time (Boudreaux is a bit too conservative about hills). Also did two runs of the ATV/ERA display system; this is useful for several reasons: Testing Mobile Agents without a robot, showing use of an ATV with navigation advisor for an astronaut; showing use of display system to augment voice commanding with personal agent. Also changed cards in astronaut backpack computers to be more compatible with Tropos base station and relays.
