The Competition

The competition will take place in May 2017.

Sign-ups for the competition will begin in January 2017.

The California Micromouse competition (CAMM) has been around since its introduction by IEEE in 1977. The original competition featured a 10x10 grid maze and was led by a dumb wall-following mouse. Our competition today features a 16x16 grid maze and much fiercer competition, as technology has come a long way! Feeling up to the challenge? Stay tuned for more announcements as competition day draws closer!

The Project

Annual project applications have closed. Please check in next year in Fall Quarter for our next round of projects.

Every year, IEEE [at] UCSD sponsors approximately ten UCSD-based teams to attend its competition. Applicants are put in teams of five and go through the process of designing, fabricating, testing and competing with their mouse. Along the way, participants will learn collaboration and research skills that come with team-based projects while being able to apply their academic knowledge in a competitive environment. At the end of the project, the team has access to their team website and live demos of their robot, allowing them to show off their work to impress both recruiters and friends.
