DJI sponsors and supports the RoboMaster annual robotics competition for teams of aspiring engineers to design and build next-generation robots to compete for supremacy. The 2018 competition concluded this past July with the team from South China University of Technology bagging the gold trophy. Close to 200 teams and 10,000 young engineers from around the world signed up for the competition, with 32 teams battling it out in the final round at the Shenzhen Bay Stadium in Shenzhen, China.
RoboMaster 2019 will comprise the RoboMaster Robotics Competition, the RoboMaster Technical Challenge and the ICRA RoboMaster AI Challenge.
In 2019, two competing teams are required to independently develop a Standard robot, a Hero robot, an Engineer robot, an Aerial robot and a Sentry robot. The aim is to launch projectiles and attack their opponent’s robots and Base. The teams must plan and conduct a strategic battle with these robots against their opponent. Operators are allowed to control their robots through a first person view. Matches will last up to 7 minutes; the team with the highest remaining Base HP by the end of the match will be the winner.
The RoboMaster 2019 Robotics Competition will hold several Chinese Regional Competitions, an International Regional Competition, a Wild Card Competition and a Final Tournament in Shenzhen, China. The world’s strongest 32 teams shortlisted will gather in Shenzhen to compete for the ultimate 2019 Championship Title.
