Here are a few micromouse videos from Nicovideo at the 2012 All Japan Micromouse Contest. The event was streamed and recorded professionally throughout the weekend. Unfortunately, the source does not allow generic embedding so you will have to link out to these yourself: UPDATE - embedded videos are in the post…
The full results and maze details for the 2012 All Japan Micromouse contest, held at Shibaura Institute for Technology, Toyosa Campus in Tokyo have now been posted on the New Technology Foundation web site
The line following contest at the annual All Japan Micromouse event is an exciting event. Simple rules, brutal timing constraints and a long, challenging course make for a great competition. While I already knew there were plenty of other robotic contest in Japan, I had not realised there was a whole line following event separate to the one I had seen. (more…)
With the sensors installed and the robot pretty well complete, it is time to see if they can actually do the job they were designed for. the idea is that the line of sensors will be able to measure the robots offset from the centre of the line over as wide a range as possible.
