The emphasis on the autonomy of all production facilities is increasing. It is normal that the company's goal is to constantly increase its profits and thanks to automation to win the competition. In order to verify real solutions, simulation models could often be created before a real project. This saves time and investment in development. Deployment of a robotic mouse (micromouse) in production or other processes is becoming an increasingly common step. This article describes one of the ways to create a simulation model of a micromouse that will move around the labyrinth. The task of the robot is to reach the target position in the uncharted labyrinth. The goal is for the robot to avoids all obstacles on its way from the starting position to the end. The current program needs human intervention in control. However, we can say that this environment serves as a “cornerstone” for the further development of an autonomous control system. So far, we are considering the simple complexity of the labyrinth.


Keywords –micromouse, labyrinth, collision detection.
