Announcing UC Riverside MICROMOUSE COMPETITION
|March 31, 2015||Posted by COMauthor under COMSOC, CS, EDCAS, EmpNet||
The IEEE UC Riverside Student Branch
will be hosting
the UC Riverside Micromouse Robotics Competition
April 5th, Sunday, from 9am to 12pm.
The Micromouse competition is a national college level robotics competition for students to build, design, and program a robot from scratch, and then have it autonomously solve a maze in the fastest time possible. Design, build, and prove that your micromouse works. There are currently 10 student teams from UCR involved in preparation for this competition, with teams ranging from 2-5 students each.
The competition is a precursor (and a dry-run event)for students to prepare for the larger Micromouse Robotics Competitions held annually at UCSD and UCLA. These later competitions will be held in May 2015, dates TBA. This April 5, 2015 competition is open currently to internal UC Riverside students as well as members of the other IEEE Student Branches in the IEEE Foothill Section area. If there are student teams from local universities throughout the Southern California area, they are also welcome to compete.
There is a guideline documentation about this micromouse competition which is available for student review. For a softcopy of this guideline, as well as answers to any further questions about this event(campus building number, room #, campus parking, etc), please feel free to contact Rex Lu, the IEEE Robotics Coordinator for UC Riverside, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that UC Riverside will have a live-stream of the competition. A recording will be made for viewing after the competition is completed.
