WifiComm allows multi-robot peer-2-peer style communication. The discovery node works together with olsrd to publish information related to available neighbors. A library is also available to allow for easy opening and closing of foreign_relays, the method by which local topics are published on a foreign roscore, thus providing the communication channel.
