A number of international competitions for mobile robots have been created and conducted over the last 20 years. This article discusses three of the arguably most prominent event series. We highlight scope, rules, robot designs and robot evolution over the years for the Micromouse Contest, AAAI Mobile Robot Competition and RoboCup Robot Soccer and discuss their contributions to mobile robot research.
