Entry Guide

FAQ

RoboMaster Robotics Competition focuses on the comprehensive application and engineering practice ability of the participating members in science and engineering disciplines, fully integrating many robot related technical disciplines such as "machine vision", "embedded system design", "mechanical control", "inertial navigation", "human-computer interaction", etc. At the same time, the innovative combination of e-sports presentation and robotic competition makes the robot confrontation more intuitive and intense, attracting the attention and participation of many technology enthusiasts and the public.

Rules Overview

The participating teams independently develop different types of robots, and launch projectiles in the complex battlefield. The robots need to cooperate with each other and work together. At the end of the match, the team with the highest remaining Base HP wins the match.

Starting a team

Participating students should be from universities, studying in mechanical, electronic, control, software, computer, public relations and other related fields. Interested students should form a research and development team. The participating universities must be full-time junior, undergraduate, and postgraduate universities. Participants must be junior college students, undergraduates, postgraduates, or doctoral students enrolled before August 2020.
Number of people per team: 10-35
Note: In principle, only one team in the same school is eligible to participate. Two to five schools that do not have separate teams can form an intercollegiate team.

Register for the competition

Complete the registration of the personal information and team information on the RoboMaster website from 12:00(Beijing time) October 15, 2019 to 12:00(Beijing time)November 15, 2019. You can choose to create a new team or join an existing one.

Get support

Materials discount support: The participating teams can purchase the materials required for the competition at the education discount price, and can be exempted from the shipping and customs duties; For the details see:<RoboMaster 2020 Instructions for Purchasing Materials>;
Materials gift support: A Chinese team that satisfies the conditions can receive a gift of a RoboMaster Racing Robot 2020 parts kit, while teams from Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan and Overseas can additionally receive $1,000 to $1,500 worth of basic materials for the competition; see the following for the details: Description of the Materials Gifted for RoboMaster 2020; For the details see:<RoboMaster 2020 Gift Materials Manual>;
Travel support: Transportation reception and accommodations are provided during the International Regional Competition, Wild Card Competition and Final Tournament; a subsidy for round-trip airplane tickets will also be provided for foreign teams;
Participation support: The Organizing Committee will provide overall support including team project management, commercial affairs, promotion and technology research and development. Please contact Wechat: rmsaiwu.

Technical assessment

In the research and development cycle, the participating teams must pass the technical assessment by submitting videos, pictures, documents, etc. at the specified time, and show the progress of the preparation to the organizing committee.
The organizing committee will review whether the qualification of the team is qualified according to the completion degree of robot development embodied in each technical assessment node. At the same time, the team that passes the technical assessment nodes on time will receive further material support from the organizing committee.

Obtain qualification

The performed well teams in the technical assessment will be eligible for the Chinese Regional Competitions or the International Regional Competition.
After fierce competition in the Regional Competitions, the winning team will be directly qualified to qualify for the Final Tournament. The remaining teams that are eligible for Wild Card Competition will have to go through the fierce confrontation of the Wild Card Competition and compete for the valuable seats in the Final Tournament.

Q1: How do I obtain the official information issued by the Organizing Committee?

A1: The Organizing Committee will update the important information on the RoboMaster official website and official forum. After you have successfully registered, the Organizing Committee will contact you and synchronize the important information through the official channel.

Q2: What technical backgrounds are needed to form a team? How many people are needed?

A2: Mechanical group: Give the robot the "body". The machine is the foundation and core of the whole team. The demand for mechanical personnel is around 6;

Electrical group: Give the robot the "soul", which allows the robot to move flexibly according to the instructions.

The electronic control is divided into hardware direction and software direction. The hardware direction is mainly responsible for the design and production of the circuit. It requires about 3 hardware circuit design experiences.

The software direction is mainly responsible for writing the control code of the robot action execution. The robots of each service type are responsible for at least one software direction. The total number is generally about five.

Algorithm Group: Gives the robot a "brain" that allows the robot to automatically recognize the corresponding image and react accordingly. Need to be responsible for image processing algorithms about 3 people.

Q3: Where are the competition venues?

A3: The venues for the regional competitions will be announced after subsequent confirmation. The venue for the Final Tournament is located in Shenzhen.

Q4: How much should my team budget for materials and travel expenses?

A4: Materials: Depending on how much funding is actually available, the funds may be between 100,000 and 500,000 yuan. The investment per robot is approximately 10,000 to 20,000 yuan. For the details see the <RoboMaster 2020 Reference budget table>.

Travel: A travel budget is created based on a team’s distance from the competition region.
