The public tests on Aug 25th and 26th went quite well. The museum was fairly crowded, and provided an ideal worst-case testing environment. On the 25th the museum had live bats nearby where we were planning to run Zaza. During a startup test the robot began firing her sonars and the bats went berzerk! Fortunately, they didn't seem to mind when we operated the robot a little further away.

The simulator is coming along nicely, but still needs some work before public testing can be allowed.

I have started work on enhancing the Java applet to give client-side control of map zoom level.
