ROBOMO, the St. Louis (Missouri) Area Robotics Group, has an interesting robot maze solving competition scheduled for April 28th. So if you're a budding robot builder, or an experienced hand, and happen to live within driving distance, then there is still time to enter, compete, and - if you're lucky - go home with some neat prizes.
The competition rules and sample maze look very straight forward, yet challenging enough to trigger some real competition. There are already quite a few robots entered and range from Lego Mindstorms based bots to full custom designs. It should be a lot of good fun. We're looking forward to hearing about how it went, and seeing some photos, after the competition.
