Competition Overview

Maze dimensions schematic.

  • Undergraduate teams of 1-9 students build autonomous maze solving robots.

  • Generally follows the rules of the IEEE’s Micromouse competition (though not an IEEE sponsored event).

  • Robot design constraints: under $500, smaller than 20cm x 20cm x 20cm.

  • The maze: 16x16 unit squares, each unit square is 16.8 cm x 16.8 cm (not including the thickness of the walls). The walls of the maze are 5 cm high and 1.2 cm thick.

  • The center of the maze (2x2 unit cells of empty space at the center) is the finish.

  • Each robot is allotted 12 minutes in the maze. The objective is to have the shortest time from start to finish. The timing starts when the robot leaves the first unit square and ends once it is at the center of the maze. The robot may make as many runs in the allotted time as possible.
