FAQ

The RoboMaster University Technical Challenge (RMUT) focuses on the academic research of a certain technical field of robotics, and aims to encourage the participating teams to dig deeper into technology and strive for perfection in robot building. Teams need to develop just one robot to accomplish a challenge, so that they can reduce R&D costs, and centralize manpower and capital for technological breakthroughs. The RMUL is undoubtedly a good choice for start-up teams to showcase their skills!

Rules Overview

The RMUT 2021 will include technical challenges for Standard, Engineer and Dart System. It consists of three major challenges: Standard Racing and Smart Firing, Engineer Mining, and Dart Targeting.
In the “Standard Racing and Smart Firing” challenge, the Standard should race through complex terrains of the Battlefield and activate the Power Rune.
In the “Engineer Mining” challenge, the Engineer should obtain minerals at the Resource Island and reach the designated point as fast as possible. The number of minerals obtained and the speed of obtaining will affect the final scores.
In the “Dart Targeting” challenge, the Dart System should launch Darts to hit the Outpost and the Base. The number of strikes and the strike time will all affect the final scores.
