26th All Japan Micromouse Contest – MIN4 (Video)

Image00392
Ng Beng Kiat from Ngee Ann Polytechnic in Singapore is almost a legend in the Japan Micromouse competitions having taken first place in the Expert Class competitions for the past several years. His robot designs are always surprising and a thing of beauty to watch in action. This year was no exception.


Because his micromouse – MIN4A – had the best time during Saturday’s competition, it had the honor of running after everyone else during the Sunday finals. In the end it missed taking first place by just a small fraction of a second, but Ng Beng Kiat still walked away with 2nd place, a cash prize, a trophy, a big smile, and his well earned reputation still intact.

This video shows MIN4A during its search run (it really does the search that fast – faster than most robots do their speed runs), and then during two speed runs.

    Absolutely phenomenal speed, I just can’t believe they don’t crash. All they need to do is make them seek fuel and breed and we have developed a better mouse than nature did, well almost, but it’s faster round a maze :)
