DJI is a world leader in aerial robotics and imaging systems. For the last six years it has put on the RoboMaster competition in Shenzhen, China. Teams’ robots battle across an arena to attack the enemy base and complete technical challenges. The main unit on the field is called a rover, and much of the hardware for this vehicle is supplied by RoboMaster. In the tournament, these four wheeled rovers are operated by human pilot. They have a launcher which is used to fire small 17mm plastic projectiles at the opposing team. To visit past games videos here.​

ICRA’s RoboMaster challenge asks teams to use the same hardware to build one or a pair of these rovers. Instead of human pilots, these rovers must be fully autonomous. The AI challenge asks teams to develop rovers that can sense the environment around themselves, navigate an arena, and engage in combat with the opposing team. Rovers will need to move around the battlefield, a nearly five by eight meters space, launching projectiles and trying to avoid incoming hits. At the end of match, the team that has scored the most hits on their opponents will be declared the winner. The grand prize winner will receive a $20,000 prize.

Teams purchase hardware from RoboMaster and code their own autonomous systems. After signing up, teams must submit the technical report including photos, videos, and documentation that track their progress. Teams that demonstrate their ability to design fully functioning and autonomous rover units will qualify for the competition. 

The competition is open to any interested groups. As long as you are a robot enthusiast or interested in RoboMaster AI Challenge, you are welcome to set up a team with no more than twelve members to sign up for the Challenge. The RoboMaster Organizing Committee will provide invitation letters for qualifying teams in order to expedite travel and visa applications to France.
