Exam #1 will be distributed this weekend. Details about the Exam can be found here.

We'll begin todays lecture with a demonstration of the EEPROM contents stored in the Chapter 4 Program EepromNavigation.bs2 . In addition, I will modify the program slightly to show how additional program variables are allocated variable memory.

Then we'll continue discussing the BoeBot beginning with Chapter 5 Tactile Navigation with Whiskers .

Side trip....go back to the EEPROM Navigation and showing how the DATA is stored in the EEPROM and it's relation to the ASCII character set. Here's an ASCII Table: ASCIITable.com. ASCII stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange and it is a standard to allow computers to represent letters, numbers, characters and control characters.
