Now Accepting Registration for ICRA 2019 RoboMaster AI Challenge


In recent years, deep learning technology has been brought up in numerous fields, reshaping the frontiers of computer vision and other areas of artificial intelligence research. In robot research, deep neural network (DNN)-based reinforcement learning enables robots to make decisions autonomously. As well-known games such as Go, Warcraft, and StarCraft are used as research platforms, the potential for the application of robotic autonomous decision-making in our daily life is unlimited.

The ICRA 2019 RoboMaster AI Challenge is Hosted by ICRA2019, DJI and organized by RoboMaster Organizing Committee. This Competition will be held in Montreal, Canada on May, 2019.


The ICRA 2019 RoboMaster AI Challenge is an international competition open to all universities. As long as your pasionate about robotics, and eager to compete, you are ready to register for the ICRA 2019 RoboMaster AI Challenge.

Rules Overview

In 2019, a standard robot platform will be provided by the competition. In the AI Challenge, each team needs to prepare one or two robots to perform fully automatic firing battles with the opposing team on a 5m × 8m competition area. During each 5-min round, a robot reduces its opponent's HP by recognizing and firing projectiles to hit the opponent's armor. At the end of each round, the team with the highest total damage output by the robots wins the round.
