  1. Communication packets

Attendees: Jamey, Josh, Ian, Bart

Sarah is busy working on the [usbfs2] driver, and the PPC board was absent. So the rest of us talked about software architecture.

(Later, Andrew and Tim gave the whole group a soldering tutorial.)

Communication packets

Long term: Kalman filters on at least Z-axis

Short term: communication layer, simulation by writing .

Moving away from CAN, we have much more flexibility in how we transmit data.

USB connections are point-to-point, so we don't need to have node ids in the packet.

Note: USB transfers have a kernel log.

Minimum requirements: * packet length * message (unique between nodes?) * data
