The IEEE SDSU Micromouse team was founded to compete in the IEEE Region 6 Micromouse Competition. The team intends to instruct its’ members on various principles of engineering and expose them to the design and lifecycle of a product. A big focus will be on teaching students about embedded systems, maze-solving algorithms, and PCB design. The goal of this year’s Micromouse team is to build a mouse that successfully completes a 16×16 maze. One of the big focuses of this year’s team will be leaving detailed documentation for next year’s participants, so that subsequent SDSU IEEE teams will be able to improve upon this team’s design. The main purpose for this year’s team is to determine the difficulties of building a Micromouse firsthand and learn what will be needed to compete successfully.
