This paper introduces the concept of an autonomous machine designed to search a candle inside a maze. The shape and dimensions of the maze, as well as the height of the candle are given. The robot has three proximity sensors: left, right and front. Using these sensors, the robot adjusts its position relative to the walls. The electric compass and the sensors for reading the white tape delimiting the room exits are used to determine the starting room. Once this phase is completed, the robot follows a pre-established pattern and searches the candle in every room. Once the candle is found the robot switches on an extinguishing fan.
