Thursdays, 6:30 P.M. - 8:30 P.M.
Room: IEEE Lab
What we do:
Micromouse is a robotics division focused on developing miniature robotic "mice" to autonomously navigate a maze, with the team that is the fastest to reach the center being declared the winner. There are various different constraints, such as size and budget, that competitors will have to work around to ultimately determine the best approach. There is no prior kit or recommended parts list given by competition organizers, so the contestants are free to utilize whatever hardware they see fit to satisfy the constraints. The club itself will assist members in learning about some basic methods to get started and provide parts for construction. This club is an excellent place to become more familiar with different kinds of small electronic components, such as sensors and microcontrollers, and members will learn how to integrate these components using Arduino software.
