UK Micromouse Championship
Sat. 29th June 2013
The International UK Micromouse Championship has been held at
Birmingham since 2004. Our 10th anniversary competition will
be bigger than ever!
Birmingham Group Meetings : The Midlands Micromouse and Robotics Club
incorporating the TEE Robotics and Intelligent Systems
UK Micromouse championship is an international robotics competition, that has been held every year in the UK since 1980.
Similar events are also held in the USA, Japan, Singapore, Korea,
India, and elsewhere. Autonomous robot 'mice' race against the clock to search the centre of a maze in the shortest time.
The maze consists of 256 squares (cells) arranged in a 16 x 16
format, on a 180mm grid. Each wall is 50mm high and 12mm thick,
hence the minimum distance from wall to wall is 168mm.
The competition is open to
all-comers, and would-be mouse builders or interested
spectators are very welcome. Beginners might like to enter the wall follower category first and then progress to the full micromouse maze-solving competition later.
The championship has been supported by a variety of organisations and academic institutions including Euromicro, the Institute of Electrical Engineers, the University of East London, the RAC, the University of Manchester, Loughborough University, the BBC, University of Exeter, University of Bristol, the Computer Science Department at Royal Holloway and others.
The competition has been hosted and funded by Birmingham City
University since 2004.
