The specific challenge of the International Fire Fighting Robot Contest is to build a computer-controlled robot that can move through a model floor plan structure of a house, find a lit candle and then extinguish it in the shortest time possible. Contest guidelines stipulate that the contest is meant to simulate the real-world operation of a robot performing fire protection functions in an actual home. The candle represents the uncontrolled fire, and the "maze" stands for the dynamic variations and problems that may be encountered in a real fire emergency.
