The match will start when a robot is placed in the start point, and starts to move trying to discover maze and get the right path to the maze end (exit) automatically. The maze is randomly constructed. So, there will be a new path to discover at every new match. Every competition’s category has its own mission according to the following scheme:
- Class A mission is to arrive the end of the maze at the shortest time possible.
- Class B mission is to arrive the end of the maze and go back to the start point following the shortest discovered path.
