Mysteries remain on this path

During the CASTAWAY Field Test, we came across a path that lead to somewhere, but we couldn't see where. This is the perfect opportunity for this robot to show us where it goes!

We set up the bot and operated it along the path. Watch it here:


Our adventure was cut short when the antenna on the Xbee snagged on one of the bushes, and thus severed the communications link. Shucks!

We'll make some improvements (ie, find a box that covers the electronics and antenna), and try this again.

Until then, whatever mysteries that remain on that path still have yet to be discovered
