Y-Maze | Environmental Services



This development project entailed following mice in a Y shaped maze.

The human observer notes which arm a mouse enteres.

Our systems uses optical sensors


Technically the sensors are placed at a specific location in each arm of the maze.

We used optical sensors to locate the mouse with an arm, A, B or C.  Each maze has it own configuration file.

The system lists the sequence of arms the mouse visited, plus some time and location data.

The motion data is exported to several Excel spread sheets








In order to verify and discern inter-observatory variances I developed a tool to help explain the results of our machine compared to those of a human observer .

So now we can other observatory and decide how different mouse behaviors should be analyzed.

This screen shows the sequence of arms an individual mouse took.
