Week_6 & 7_Midterm_videos

Tim,James,Keith and I worked together with spiritual animals(our initial concept) which is called a meshpet during the 3 weeks of the midterm in our Collaborative Mesh Networking class.
We had a great time by learning lots of new things.
We have developed more slowly then others, but I believe that it was a good learning experience.

Week 03_Rock Paper Scissors






I am working with James now. We are struggling with the code, but it's fun to know step by step. ^^ Of course, we got some help from others.
First of all, we set up each arduino board and set the same PAN ID(feed:james'??)
We also set up another bread board for one switch and one LED to see how it works,
and then tried to apply the switch on Xbee board. Each radio works fine but at the same time when we send information by pushing the button, it is kind of messed up..
We don't know why..
I feel like I might need a tutor for programming help.
