Frequently Asked Questions
In 2019, the RoboMaster Organizing Committee will continue to host the ICRA 2019 RoboMaster AI Challenge in conjunction with the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation. The event will be held in May 2019 in Montreal, Canada.
The game adopts the form of “automatic robot launching confrontation”. The venue is full of functional organs. The participating teams need to use the official robot platform to conduct motion planning and control by sensing the environmental information of the battlefield and making decisions based on the situation on the field. The fully automatic robots launch projectiles against the enemy robots. At the end of the game, the team with the highest blood of the robots won the game.
