Micromouse demonstration

Micromouse is a robot competition first ran in 1979. It is an event when small robot solves 16x16 maze. the mazr is made up of a grid of 16x16 cells. Robots are completely autonomous and their task is to find their way from starting point to the center of the maze without any help. The robot needs to know where it is, discover way, map out the maze and of course detect when it has reached the goal. Afer the robots finds a way it will start to search the optimal route and then runs that route in the shortest time.
there is also new version of Micromouse competition intorduced in All Japan Micromouse Competition 2009, the maze is 32x32 and the size of cells is 1/2.

As you can see in this video, some robots can solve it really very quickly.
