The goal was to make an autonomous maze solving robot that was restricted by its dimensions down to a 10 x 10 cm platform. We chose to mount two stepper motors to a piece of carbon fiber, use 4 infrared sensorsfor guidance, and a lithium polymer battery for power. I did all the machining,welding, and fabrication as well as design most of the mouse. The programmersfor the project transferred to UCSB and took the mouse with them.

Micro-Mouse Maze Project (to design and build a computer-controlled robotic mouse to travel in a maze to a target area (for example, to locate and put out a fire)
