> 3. Professor Bongard suggests that we talk to Sentient (company that

> sensor donations.
> 4. Professor Wu mentioned that we could potentially get funding from
> Undergraduate Research Funds. I'll try to meet with him before drafting

> 5. Tucci, if you have the time, do you want to do some reading on
> satellite based GPS devices and see how much it would cost to get

> that the GPS information is accessible and that text messages have

> configure apache & mysql to have a testable work environment.
> I'll send updates as the night goes on. Cheers!
