Fall 2008 – Spring 2009
Product Name: Micromouse
Team Members: Jason Wells, Ryan Bidlack
Micromouse is an autonomous self contained machine designed to get to the center of a maze in the shortest possible time. A Micromouse essentially comprises of a drive motor or motors to move it; a steering and turning method; sensors to detect the presence or absence of maze walls; sensors or control logic to oversee the action of the rest and keep the vehicle 'on track' or to solve the maze; batteries to provide power.

n A Micromouse shall be self contained.
n Micromouse must follow size constraints of 250 mm wide by 250 mm long. No height limit.
n Micromouse must not be powered by a combustion or nuclear process
n A Micromouse shall not leave anything behind while negotiating the maze.
n A Micromouse shall not jump over, climb, scratch, damage, or destroy the walls of the maze.
The Problem: To design an autonomous robot (Micromouse) with the ability to navigate its way through a maze without any human control.
