MOD is the modulo operator, which returns the remainder after integer 
division. Actually I think the above text should be "when t MOD dt = 
first time MOD dt". Anyway the idea is to reduce the frequency with 
which data frames are taken for further processing. This can be a good 
idea for various applications, because frames close in time are 
correlated with each other.
