RoboMaster Armies in China

RoboMaster Armies in China

Shenzhen, the capital of China has been invaded by battling robots. RoboMaster pits engineers and their robots against each other in golf ball slinging conflicts, according to BBC News on August 4, 2017.

The conflict pitch would involve a number of robots and drones working either as a team or against each other. Some robots would be refueling and others would be attacking the opponent in order to get to the base. The whole procedure involves tactical team work, where various robots are performing different tasks, implied to them. In order to win, a robot is either required to take down the base of its opponents, eliminating all the health points present on different robots. Or whichever robot has the highest health points left, would be declared the winner of the golf ball slinging conflict.

Drone maker DJI launched RoboMaster in 2013 as a private event for its own engineers. It later on introduced the event to college students in China and now are approaching international contestants. The victors will share a large money prize and DJI is likely to employ the best of them, as it has employed several past winners. The most important skill is learning how to collaborate in a big team where different people have different expertise.

The company has mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, app developers and programmers, all under the same roof. All these different talents come together to achieve the same goal.

This year’s finals would be streamed on Twitch for the first time, as RoboMaster seeks a wider audience. In 2018, DJI plans to open its event at universities across the globe to drive further awareness.

This battling of robots shows great scope for future robotics and its purposes, and would sooner or later be modified and used in real-life war as well, outcomes of which might not be all that positive and exciting as is the RoboMaster game.
