Overall, MouseKraft performed up to expectations. It was able to find both the dim as well as the bright house as well was able to maneuver the corridor system with great ease due to our simple, yet suffice navigation/detection system. Unfortunately, it was disappointing that, due to uncontrollable fluctuations in light brightness levels being displayed on the appropriate homes, in order to have an acceptable success rate in finding the appropriate home, extremely precise calibration was needed. Possibly, in future attempts, one should account for human error when calibrating brightness levels by possibly adding a larger error term to the calibration step.


The physical robustness of KraftMouse was quite admirable. Due to its simplistic design with minimal parts, KraftMouse was virtually indestructible, except for its flimsy bumpers. A problem we found with our design was that when KraftMouse was close to an obstruction on the side of it, the wheel would often get jammed on the wall. We corrected this problem with the use of bumpers at 45 degrees on the front of KraftMouse, but due to limitations with Lego, this 45 degree orientation was not structurally sound and would continuously need to be corrected after nearly every collision, but it did perform it's duty of preventing wheel sticking.


As mentioned earlier, a limitation in our design was that extreme care was needed when calibrating KraftMouse.
