Drone manufacturer DJI has unveiled its first ground-based product in the form of the DJI RoboMaster S1 robot which has been designed to provide an intelligent educational robot, inspired by DJI’s annual RoboMaster robotics competition. “The S1 provides users with an in-depth understanding of science, math, physics, programming, and more through captivating gameplay modes and intelligent features”. The robot is powered by a 2,400-mAh battery capable of providing up to 35 minutes of use of the brushless motors and on-board AI system.
Check out the announcement trailer below to learn more about what you can expect from the DJI robot which includes 46 programmable components, six programmable AI modules, Low-latency HD FPV, support for Scratch and Python Coding, 4WD Omnidirectional Movement, Intelligent Sensing Armor, Multiple Exciting Battle Modes and Innovative Hands-On Learning, says DJI.
“The RoboMaster S1 bridges the digital world with the real one, bringing abstract theories to life through practical operations. The S1 supports Scratch and Python programming languages, allowing users to experience math, physics, and AI technology in a cutting-edge and inspiring way. Up to 46 customizable components give you unlimited space for innovation, helping you grow and learn in an exciting way that expands the capabilities of your S1, and yourself. Six PWM ports support customized accessories, allowing you to explore the unlimited possibilities of the S1 and the magic of the robotic world.”
“By utilizing Vision Markers to create “traffic lights” and other obstacles, users can write their own programs that allow the S1 to drive automatically and execute complex tasks. Explore mathematical principles involving robotic control and motion mechanics through the S1’s six programmable artificial intelligence modules. Get an in-depth understanding of AI as you develop these skills and many more.”
The DJI RoboMaster S1 robot is now available to purchase throughout the United States from today priced at $499. As soon as DJI start rolling out the new robot to other worldwide markets we will keep you up to speed as always.
