I participated CAMM 2013 last weekend, generally that was a pretty good event, and I had lots of fun there after all.
Since the competition starts at 8:00 AM Sunday, May 12th, UCSD IEEE provided a practice session from Saturday 10AM until 8:00 AM Sunday.
My conclusion for all Mice this year:
1. More Mice are designed on PCB instead of perfboard makes more professional and reliable.
2. 3D printing is widely used for better component mounting.
3. Majority are still using Arduino based MicroController such as Arduino, Teensy and maple.[......]
CAMM(California Micromouse Competition) will take place on Sunday May 12th, 2013 at University of California, San Diego. The Competition is currently open to college students only, and lots of team will compete in this event even include team from China and Europe.

In order to keep mouse stay in proper position all the time when in the maze, some calibration other than PID are need to reduce the chance to crash.
It will a good chance to re-adjust the position of your mouse when entering the dead end(the mouse need to turn back). Both front and side walls ar[......]
As a matter of fact, most of the Micromouse use infrared sensor to keep distance with wall when running, and it’s very easy to be affected by environmental light(noise) consequently cause crash. This is obviously something you don’t want to see, and there are some ways to reduce the change from happ[......]
IEEE Region 2 Student Activities Conference 2013

West Virginia University is thrilled to be hosting the 2013 IEEE Region 2 Student Activities Conference! The conference will be held April 20th in Morgantown, West Virginia. We hope all of the student chap[......]
As we all know, STM32 doesn’t build in EEPROM in the package. When I was designing my current mouse, I added a external I2C interface EEPROM to save explored maze to prevent crash. Unfortunately, the EEPROM library from ST is too complected for me to use, so I have to give up on using external EEPRO[......]
Spring quarter is always the season for regional micromouse competitions in United States for college students. Here is the information for incoming region 6 Micromouse Competitions host at each area. Region 6 is mostly the west part of USA include Hawaii and Alaska.
