> Your team will be given a pre-built micromouse robot to program 1 week before the competition. The robot will include various sensors to help you navigate the maze. The programming will consist of Arduino based code.
> The micromouse competition is judged based on how well your micromouse performs on the maze (i.e. time of completion, how close you were to solving the maze, etc.). The maze is designed and built by a dedicated committee sworn to secrecy so no one will know the final maze design until competition day, ensuring fairness. The maze will follow closely, but not exactly, with official micromouse competition guidelines.
> A practice maze will be available at various times beginning the Monday before the competition up until the competition.
> At least one team member should be present at the kick-off meeting to pick-up your robot, get an overview of the rules, and learn basic functions of the robot. Missing this meeting will put you at a disadvantage.
Kick-off meeting. Thursday April 17th 5:30 PM location TBA. We will email you further details.
