It has been a couple of weeks since returning from Taiwan. I would have written about it sooner but things did not go quite to plan robot-wise and I wanted to find out exactly what happened.
Results from the 2016 Taiwan Micromouse and Intelligent Robot Contest
It is hard to believe that I have just visited Taiwan for the fifth time. After a couple of fairly unimpressive performances at the last couple of Taiwan micromouse contests, I was determined to do better and there have been a lot of improvements to Decimus4B.
Exploration is a critical task for a micromouse. The maze must be explored quickly, thoroughly and without error.

Lunghua University of Science and Technology hosted the annual Taiwan Micromouse and Intelligent Robot Contest on September 15th 2013. One again, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend and compete with some of the best micromouse builders around.
Here are some selected photos from the Taiwan 2013 micromouse and intelligent robot contest.

Unfortunately so does everyone else. The contestants in this event are the best there are and the… Read More »

Normally, I leave two evenings to gather all the bits, arrange the packing and make sure I am actually ready to go. This time, I had only one evening and that didn’t go… Read More »
