minos micromouse logoWith Minos only a couple of weeks away, we now have a draft programme of presentations. If you have not yet registered, there is still time or you can do so on the day. I’m sure we can squeeze in some more speakers, so if you would like a slot to show off your latest toy then please let me know and we’ll add you. I’ve put a show-and-tell session at the end to allow people to just stand up for a minute or two.


Here is the draft programme – something for everyone here I think:



10:30 Registration and coffee
11:00 Adrian Johnstone – Welcome and Administrivia
11:05 Dave Otten – Shiny walls and accelerometer progress
11:45 Gary Bulmer – Robot friendly arduinos
12:15 Duncan Louttit – DC motors and encoderless odometry

12:45 Lunch and maze practice

14:00 Peter Harrison – Contest Roundup
14:30 Rob Probin – Debugging Techniques
15:00 Ken Hewitt – Easier Maze Building

15:25 Afternoon coffee

15:30 David Hannaford – Tuning the maze solver
16:00 Alan Dibley – Improved diagonal path generation
16:30 Martin Barratt – Power Supplies
17:00 Show and Tell
Close and maze practice
—– Dinner – location to be advised


     Breakfast in hall
10:00 Practice and heats
11:00 Competition
12.00 Prize ceremony

If you are on the list and need your time or title changing, contact me and I will sort it out.


Looking forward to seeing you all.

    Hi Pete,

    I’m thinking of coming to Minos this year (I’ve not been before). Unfortunately I haven’t registered and can only make the Saturday. Am I to late or can I just turn up on the day? If it’s ok to come on the day can you let me have the Post Code and some instructions on how to find you all.

    Looks like an interesting program.

    By all means turn up on the day.

    There is a nominal charge for the facilities made by Royal Holloway but I am on holiday at present and I am not sure how much that is.

    The address is:

    Royal Holloway, University of London, Egham, Surrey TW20 0EX

    There are generally sign up in the grounds when you arrive.

    Where do we report when we arrive on the Campus?
