Producer of drones, DJI is now developing RoboMaster robotics competition in China. This program is intended for students to be able to program and learn about robotics.
Reported from The Star page, Sunday (06/16/2019) to expand its program, DJI also created a robot named RoboMaster S1 to teach coding or programming languages.
RoboMaster S1’s Specifications?
This robot has 46 components such as motors, impact detectors, infrared sensors, LED lights, microphones, speakers, and much more. There are six programmable artificial intelligence modules.
The artificial intelligence is used to recognize other Robomaster S1. It also can interpret various sounds and movements made by the user. This feature was made in order to allow robots to do tasks with different complexity. All equipment and many sensors allow it to maneuver at speeds of up to seven miles per hour or 11.27 kph.
In addition, it is possible to program it for autonomic movements. It can even recognize and react to certain sounds and gestures. The manufacturer has announced that the robot’s battery will last for about half an hour.
Robots are programmed and controlled on smartphones or tablets running on Android or iOS through applications that teach two programming languages, Python and Scratch. The DJI Robomaster S1 is now available in the United States and could be purchased for USD 499.
