+The Internet, in its current form, provides up to the minute updates on

-Paragraph about experiments that show our system works.
+Since our system was split into two major components, we were able to test
+both somewhat independently.
+The first component included physically sensing the vehicle and relaying
+the data to the backend.
+The second component involved testing the backend works for extended
+periods of time and correctly logs/recalls historical data.
+\subsection{Sensing and Sending}
+Discussion of how sensing and sending was tested
+\subsection{Backend and Frontend}
+Discussion of how the simulator tested the backend and any problems that
+arose from it.
+% Couldn't really test large scale deployment of sensor backend since we
+% had limited resources with respect to actual motes, funds to purchase
+% sonar sensors, building containers to house the sensors overnight, and
+% the ability to gather data over an extended period of time.
