           Introductions
 Vicky- coordinator,
  software/hardware
 Bryce-morale booster,
  software/hardware
 Ruffer-time keeper,
  software/hardware
 Sean-rule enforcer,
  software/hardware
              Overview
 Make  a robotic mouse as a group
 Be able to find the center of a maze
  as fast as possible
 Do so without crashing into a wall
     Discussion of Approach
 Top  Down Sensors
 Using a Wall Hugger as the maze
  solver
 If time permits, try different
  algorithms to find the center of maze
 Research previous programs in aid
  for mapping the maze
 Research previous micromouse
  projects in aid for design
           Potential Problems
 Faulty Parts
 Finding the center of the maze

 Mapping the maze

 Mouse crashing into a wall

 Mouse not able to turn at
  intersections
 Mouse not able to reverse
        What We Will Learn
 Learn how to program the mouse to move
  where it should go
 Better programming skills/techniques
  using C compiler
 Effectively use components such as
  resistors, capacitors, stepper motors, etc…
 Learn how to put together a finished
  product
 Improve team/group skills. i.e. use time
  efficiently
          Deliverable Goals
 Write an effective algorithm to find
  the center of the maze
 Build/design a chassis

 Build the final product

 Make the mouse move and turn
                      Schedule
   Feb 8
    – Start working on lab
    – Brainstorm ideas on the best design for the mouse
   Mar 8
    – Have the design for the mouse completed
    – Have basic shell for the mouse built
    – Work on programming/debugging the rabbit
   Mar 31
    – Have a mouse that can go around a corner
    – Make alterations for the mouse to be more efficient
    – Continue debugging/programming to improve the mouse
   May 1
    – Have a finished mouse that can find the center of the
      maze
