The Micromouse Contest is a game in which self-contained robots, made by participants, autonomously explore a maze (by themselves) and compete for the shortest time to reach the goal.
This contest started with the advice of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) in 1977 and was held annually as "All Japan Micromouse Contest" since 1980. As the first "Robocon" in Japan, the contest is the most historical robot competition in the world.
Currently it is a de facto world tournament, since many other high-tech robots come from other Asian countries, Europe, and the United States.
MathWorks supports this competition by providing tools in any of the following Micromouse leagues.
- Micromouse Contest
- Classicmouse Contest
- Robotrace Contest
Students can take advantage of MATLAB, Simulink, Robotics System Toolbox, and other products to develop algorithms, test them in simulation, and deploy them to hardware.
