    1111The robot incrementally rotates two motors, covering every possible angle in multiples of ten degrees. Samples of the signal strength are collected and matched with the corresponding angles using timestamps. During this test, the robot also moves back and forth to minimize multipathing bias.

     13== Steps to run the spherical test on Linux: == 
    1414 * Download nxt-python and its required libraries from http://code.google.com/p/nxt-python/ 
    1515 * Plug the NXT brick into your computer with a USB cable.

     37== Steps to run the XY/XZ/YZ plane test on Linux: == 
     38 * Download nxt-python and its required libraries from http://code.google.com/p/nxt-python/ 
     39 * Plug the NXT brick into your computer with a USB cable. 
     40 * Plug the test receiver into your computer with another USB cable. 
     41 * Run planetest.py in Autotest. 
     42 * After that is finished, navigate to the Autotest directory in MATLAB. 
     43 * Then run the appropriate m-file to either plot the data or find the average power.
