overview
Overview
  • This semester we will be designing, fabricating, and programming a small robotic mouse to make its way to the center of a difficult 16X16 maze.
accomplishments so far
Accomplishments So Far
  • Top looking sensors
  • Made a prototype uMouse
  • General Structure of our uMouse
  • Bought most of the materials
  • Started writing some of the Algorithms
a look into the hardware
A Look into the Hardware
  • This is what we first started off with:
  • Material: 1/32 Aluminum
  • Problems:

Very thin, Not rigid

Wasted Space

No support for other

  • hardware components
our umouse now
Our uMouse Now
  • Material: 1/16 Angled Aluminum

8 Shortened M3 Screw

  • Lighter
  • Motors very close together
  • Use 8 AA batteries
  • Use Velcro to secure battery holders
  • Use “mini furniture sliders” to keep the uMouse balanced
  • Use top 2 Aluminum plates to mount circuit boards
some potential problems
Some Potential Problems
  • No Wheels
  • Can’t test height off the ground
  • Can’t test position and distance of sensor boards
  • Difficult to keep wires organized
  • Fitting the circuit boards on the chassis with the wheels
  • Finding the quickest and simplest way to find the center
  • Once to the center, how to go back to the start efficiently
  • Motors getting too hot
  • Supplying enough power for the 10 minutes
  • Time Management
tasks remaining
Tasks Remaining
  • Number of sensors to be used
  • Need to test sensors for approximate wall distance
  • Build circuit boards
  • Finish construction of uMouse
  • Program and test on uMouse
