2020 Season

Entry Guide

FAQ

RoboMaster Technical Challenge focuses on academic research in a certain field of robotics. It aims to encourage in-depth mining of technology, excellence, and robots to the extreme.

Rules Overview

  • RoboMaster 2020 will include the classic technical challenges for Standard and Engineer robots, as well as new technical challenges for the Sentry and Dart System. In the Technical Challenge, participants only need one or two robots to complete a challenge, which means they can greatly reduce the cost of research and development, and concentrate their manpower and funding to seek breakthroughs. For young teams, the Technical Challenge is undoubtedly a good choice to show off their skills.
  • Technical Challenge consists of four major challenges: “Dart Targeting,” “Engineer Projectile Obtaining,” “Standard Racing and Smart Firing,” and “2V2 Confrontation”.
  • Dart is a new robot for the RM2020 competition. In “Dart Targeting,” launching a dart to hit Base, the number of strikes and the strike time will all affect the score.
  • "Engineer", short for Engineer robot, goes towards the Resource Island to obtain projectile containers in the "Engineer Projectile Obtaining" challenge. The number of projectiles obtained and the speed of obtaining will affect the final scores.
  • "Standard", short for Standard robot, can launch 17mm projectiles to activate the Power Rune to obtain combat buffs. In the "Standard Racing and Smart Firing" challenge, Standard is able to rush through complex terrain of the Battlefield and activate the Power Rune.
  • The “2V2 Confrontation” is an entirely new challenge in the RM2020 Technical Challenge and it involves a tactical confrontation by Standard and Sentry on the Battlefield. The robots are operated to shoot projectiles and attack the enemy robots and Base. When the competition is finished, the side with the largest Remaining HP at the Base wins the competition.
