The objective of the competition is to build and design a small robot to navigate a 16x16 maze, traveling from a random corner of the maze to the center in the shortest time. The competition is open to any undergraduate group, and 2017 is the sixth year that we have participated at the Brown University IEEE Robotics Olympiad.
Our team claimed First Place in the 2016 Brown IEEE Micromouse Competition. Our robot managed to solve the maze in less than half the time it took the second place robot to do so!
In 2017, our team placed 2nd at the Brown IEEE Micromouse Competition and also won the Best Design award!
