Welcome to the UCLA IEEE Micromouse wiki!
Micromouse is a project where students build an autonomous maze-solving robot. It gives students a chance to build and exercise skills in circuit design, microcontroller programming, circuit debugging, feedback control, and sensor fusion. This wiki is specifically for the UCLA Micromouse project, hosted by UCLA IEEE. Here you can find information about mice built in the past as well as presentations and information from the current iteration of the program.
This year, we are using a Micromouse Piazza for participants to freely and anonymously ask questions for either the instructors or their fellow participants to answer.
Applications are closed for 2017-2018.

If you're really impatient and can't wait to get started with micromouse, here are some links to the previous years of Micromouse including presentations and mini projects:
There is also a note about Project Futura here, if you're interested in seeing a more advanced mouse.
Lab hours and officer schedules can be found here.
