Default MicroMouse finishes maze in record time cares nothing about foolish cheese

With all my recent robot planning, designing, and learning. I found this very interesting and amazingly impressive.
Watch the video in the article.

The mouse by itself gets multiple runs. The number 5 comes to mind.
The mouse must keep track of where it is and where it has been.
By watching other videos you can see that the mice will actually speed up when it knows where it is.

That mouse was on it's final run and beat the current world record.

Found another video of the same mouse.


This video shows the mouse learning the maze then making an speedy run at the end. Even a crash at the very end.
