Team: CHEE WHOOO Spring 08
The Team Mitchell La Puente-Project Leader Josh Miyamoto-Software Richard Ordonez-Hardware
Project Overview To create, a small autonomous robotic mouse that will: 1. Navigate it’s way safely to a central point of a maze 2. Map the maze 3. Find the shortest route from the start point to central point of the maze. Contest rules must be followed.
Learning Expectations Implement new technology into to the components Understand how to inter-connect each component and improve their functionality within circuit. Learn how to work efficiently as a team in an engineering work environment. Improve on previous autonomous robots
Discussion of Approach Explore new components 1. Pic Microcontroller vs. Rabbit Microprocessor 2. Side Sensors vs. Top-down Sensors 3. Smaller Stepper motors 4. No Voltage Regulator 5. Wheels 6. PCB board Design Micromouse 1. Schematic layout 2. PCB 3. Physical Layout 4. Software
Build 1. Transform schematic design to PCB 2. Construct chassis 3. Program Test / Debugging 1. Does everything work? 2. Does the mouse do what we want it to do?
Potential Problems Finding the right components Breaking components Using PCB software Understand how to program Pic Mictroller Writing Flood Fill program Mapping program Ordering Parts Insufficient time to build robot
Team Goals Get the Pic microcontroller to work Build a very, very small mouse Make the mouse as clean as possible Write complete tracking and mapping programs Find the Center Complete the project before the spring break deadline Go to the regional competition
