RoboMaster, the annual robotics competition created by DJI, has begun recruiting engineers to join the 2019 RoboMaster Competition.
The programme is an international robotics competition open to all universities and students passionate about engineering and robotics.
The 2018 competition concluded in July with a team from the South China University of Technology going home victorious.
Close to 200 teams and 10,000 young engineers from around the world signed up for the competition, with 32 teams battling it out in the final round at the Shenzhen Bay Stadium in China.
The 2018 final competition attracted over 990,000 views on Twitch from audiences in 30 countries.
Roger Luo, president at DJI, commented on the competition, he said: “What’s unique about the RoboMaster competition is really the experience participants go through during the nine months of teamwork, constant problem-solving and putting their theoretical learnings to the test.”
He added: “The competition is a great platform for young engineers to demonstrate their skills and showcase robotics in an entertaining and engaging way. More importantly, what they learn here might one day lead to real-life applications and solutions that could bring positive changes to the world.”
A RoboMaster team may consist of full-time college and university students, their instructors, and external advisors.
To officially participate in the competition, teams need to submit engineering proposals and achieve certain technical milestones during preparation of their robots.
Each successfully shortlisted team will have an opportunity to develop ground and aerial robots using advanced technology from DJI.
