UQ MARS is proud to announce that we will be hosting a MicroMouse competition on November 27th, 2021 right here at UQ!
MicroMouse is a competition to create an autonomous robot capable of reaching the centre of the maze. The goal is to reach the centre in the fastest time, however for first-time competitors, reaching the centre is in itself a very respectable achievement.
The maze layout is unknown before the competition. Therefore, the mouse must be programmed to initially map the maze, starting from one corner and finding an optimum path to the centre. The build runs very similar to a team project with up to four people, and various design challenges making the goal easier said than done.
