 The International Micro Robot Maze Contest (MAZE) has been held in Nagoya since 1991, which is in parallel with the International Symposium on Micro Mechatronics and Human Science (MHS). We are expecting the discussion and innovation of the micromachine and micromechatronics technologies through our robot contest.

 The MAZE provides 5 types of competitions:
- Category 0: Micro Robot Racer by 1 cm cube robot
- Category 1: Teleoperated Micro Robot Maze by 1 cm cube robot
- Category 2: Autonomous Micro Robot Maze by 1 inch cube robot
- Category 3: Legged Micro Robot
- Category 4: Free Performance by Micro Robot
Please check Regulations for the details.

Cancellation Announcement of MAZE2020 due to COVID-19.

In order to prevent the spreading of the COVID-19-infected Pneumonia, we have decided to cancel the MAZE2020. Now, Japanese government requests 14-days-quarantine for all immigrants to Japan. This is quiet long time to participate the MAZE contest. We considered the online contest, but it is difficult to prepare the courses of each category for all members and country. So, we are really sorry to announce the cancellation of MAZE2020.

 

The updates of our event will be announced on this website.
