Frequently Asked Questions
The RoboMaster 2019 Technical Challenge is derived from the RoboMaster 2019 Robotics Competition, focusing on academic research in a certain field of robotics. It aims to encourage in-depth mining of technology, excellence, and robots to the extreme. The event will be held concurrently with the RoboMaster 2019 Robotics Competition.
The single Technical Challenge tests the functionality of a particular robotic unit in the RoboMaster 2019 Robotics Competition. The single Technical Challenge is set according to the time consumed by the robot to complete the specified task, the accuracy and speed of the completion. The subject examined by each robot is a project. Teams can choose to participate in one or more of the challenges.
