Min7 Micromouse Robot Solves Maze Under 4 Seconds, Real Mice out of a Job

by Conner Flynn

Are you geek enough to realize that there is actually an annual Micromouse Robot Competition? It’s where a bunch of small robots face off against each other not in the ring, but in a labyrinth. The goal is to solve the maze as quickly as possible.

That means that they need to be fast and turn quickly. And I mean fast. Check out the videos to see these little guys just zip around these mazes like The Flash after a visit to Starbucks. The current king of the competition is Ng Bent Kiat, with his mouse robot called the Min7.

The Min7 is the first 4-wheeled robot Ng has created, which I suppose says a lot about his skill. It weighs 90 grams and measures just 10 x 7.5 x 2.5cm, with a straight line speed of 3.5m/s. It’s brain is a 20MHz Hitachi 2633R processor. Initially, the robot first enters the maze and do some recon, slowly mapping it out.

Then comes the timed run where they navigate the maze as quickly as possible:

Boy, these things sure can move!
