MICROMOUSE CHALLENGE: In this contest the contestant or team of contestants design and build small self-controlled robots (MicroMouse) to negotiate a maze in the shortest possible time. The challenge of the competition is to make a robot that can move on track and reach the finish as soon as possible.The competition area has is a special place defined for the robots operation (hereafter COMPETITION FIELD).The participants must create an autonomous vehicle (hereafter ROBOT), that will move on the COMPETITION FIELD and do certain tasks.The ROBOT which will start on the START tile and reach the FINISH tile in the shortest time will be nominated as winner. DefinitionsRace clock:There are optical sensors that detect the robots start and stop movement. When the robot starts off from the START tile, the timer automatically starts to count the race time. As the robot reaches the FINISH tile, the timer automatically stops and the recorded time value is saved. Trials:Every team will have 2 trial runs. After the trials are over, the fastest time achieved during those trials will be chosen for the team. One trial should not last more than five minutes. After the trial time is over, the TIME-UP BUZZER will sound and the team will be asked to remove the robot from the COMPETITION FIELD. If the robot is on the field half way and operating during the TIME-UP BUZZER sound, the team will be given 2 more minutes so the robot operation is not interrupted. HIGHLIGHTS: 200+ teams participating in Micro Mouse Championship Challenge. All participants will get certification of Participation from All India Council for Robotics & Automation and Department of Science & Technology, Govt of India. Cash awards INR 100,000/- to winner teams.
