Although we communicate regularly via e-mail, Facebook, and other social networking channels, the All Japan Micromouse Competition 2009 was a rare opportunity for us to get together face-to-face, and swap stories, experiences, and observations.
This year our after-dinner session on the final night of the competition was almost totally focused on the surprising performance turned in by Kato-san’s TETRA micromouse design. David Otten already explained how we suspect TETRA was able to achieve its lightening fast speeds. Here are the impressions of the other members of our elite group of foreigners at the world’s leading micromouse event.
