CSU Chico State IEEE has built an award winning autonomous robot which has won 1st place in the San Jose and Sacramento 2018 MicroMouse exhibitions. This robot is designed to navigate a 16x16 randomized maze, find its shortest path to the center, and execute a speed run in the shortest time possible. We are currently working to make our micro-mouse even faster and we hope to apply for more competitions this year.

The NATCAR Project involves an automated car that follows a white line to complete a racecourse as fast as possible. We are currently in the process of designing and testing this car before the UC Davis NATCAR Competition in March. Joining this project will help you learn more about Open CV, Circuit/PCB design, Microprocessors, and CAD designs.
