About RoboMaster

info-img

The RoboMaster University Series (RMU) is a platform for robotic competitions and academic exchange founded by Da-Jiang Innovations (DJI) and specially designed for global technology enthusiasts. Since its establishment in 2013, RoboMaster has been committed to its mission – "empowering young learners to transform their world with the power of engineering and technology" , in order to attract engineering talents with interdisciplinary abilities and showcase the possibilities of technological innovation to audiences around the globe.

It requires participants to go beyond their textbooks to form a robotics team, develop a diverse fleet of robots and participate in team battles. Through the intense competition, students gain invaluable industrial practice and strategic planning skills. This helps to combine their book knowledge with practice in this field, and enables the most advanced and intelligent robots to be built. At present, it has developed into three major competition series: the RoboMaster University Series for university students, the RoboMaster Youth Championship for K12 students, and the RoboMaster Open Tournament for the general public. Among them, the RoboMaster University Series has been expanding its influence year by year, attracting more than 400 colleges and universities around the world to participate annually and nurturing the engineering talents of over 35,000 young learners. RoboMaster has also continued to develop various training and laboratory co-construction programs with hundreds of colleges and universities.

Feature

  • Both sides need to develop their own robots of different types and functions for tactical confrontation in a designated battlefield.
  • The competition mode the same as that of RMUC. Teams can also advance to the RMUC through the Scoring and Ranking system.
  • Teams can choose from multiple challenges and only need to develop one robot for a challenge, so that they can focus on technological breakthroughs in a single field.
  • The RMUA focuses on competition of mobile robotics algorithm. Teams need to master multiple aspects of algorithm knowledge, such as positioning, motion planning, target detection, autonomous decision-making and automatic control.

Mode

  • 7V7 live-firing (multiple types of robots)
  • 3V3 live-firing (three types of robots)
  • Technical challenge for a single robot
  • 2V2 live-firing (two automatic robots from each side)

Participant

  • Suitable for teams that have made a certain level of achievements in previous seasons as well as experienced teams
  • Suitable for start-up or newly-formed teams that wish to take part in the RMUC in the future
  • Suitable for teams with less funding, manpower, intended to focus on technological breakthroughs in a single field.
  • Senior undergraduate and graduate students are recommended to participate as core team members

Talent Cultivation

Operation Costs Saved:
By 2021, the RMOC has helped participating teams save more than RMB 30,000,000 in operation costs through providing dedicated material discounts.
R&D Ability
The competition rules integrate a variety of robotics disciplines, such as machine vision, embedded system design, mechanical control, inertial navigation, and human-computer interaction. Through participating the project-based RoboMaster program, participants can improve their professional and technical capabilities, accumulate engineering experiences, and lay a solid foundation before stepping into the society.
Comprehensive Ability
The RoboMaster Training System encompasses the Participant Training Guide, R&D knowledge base, course salons, open source materials, etc. After the one-year long preparation and practice, participants can hone their team-work abilities, overall planning skills and flexibility so as to grow into an innovative talent with integrative competence and hands-on experiences.

Exclusive Recruitment Channel

The RoboMaster program hopes to cultivate innovative, persistent, visionary and enterprising young engineers. In order to broaden the recruitment channels for outstanding team members, DJI has opened an exclusive recruitment channel for RoboMaster participants.Outstanding participants will have priority to obtain internal referral for DJI positions.
