Not only is the remote-controlled robot running on the ground integrated with normal cameras, DJI's RoboMaster S1 has also been launched as a toy for children to approach programming, automating through self-coding Its operation process. With a selling price from today at $ 499, S1 is integrated with 31 sensors, allowing it to map the surroundings, moving 360 degrees on wheels designed to run countless dimensions and works with the software on the phone or installs the code available for self-operation.
Similar to the drones that DJI has previously released, RoboMaster S1 also has the ability to recognize and respond to gestures, user control sounds, can track objects or analyze images themselves. "See" to make an active decision. In front of S1 is a 120-degree f2.4 aperture camera, which supports the recording and streaming of the image it receives on the phone application via wifi.
As a toy, RoboMaster S1 also has a "gun barrel with the ability to fire soft gel bullets like tanks." The initial S1 bullets will be very small in size, but will be inflated for a few hours with water. Of course, there is no toxic substance, but it is natural to play it. Basically, one can control S1 through a controller. It allows mounting extra batteries or cartridges.
In addition, people can control S1 through the screen on the phone. The latency of the images sent from the camera on S1 is extremely low, according to some of the attendees who came out to talk about it. S1 gives players many different operating scenarios, be it to bring multiple cars to the race, or shoot each other, or to do a certain task, … In battle mode, players will control their S1 shot into an area with sensor S1 of the opponent, then the score is calculated. The shot S1s will "lose blood" and can regain or gain special abilities immediately by scanning the predetermined images in the play area.
Years ago, DJI organized a robot tournament called the RoboMasters in China, allowing students to create and program robots to fight. With S1, they want to expand this model to many regions of the world. Therefore, the highly customizable ability is notable for this robot. Users can remove and attach various accessories. Users can write code in Scratch 3.0 or Python to control the operation of many parts of the car, from the movement of the wheel, engine, gun, …
For those who are new, DJI has a library of videos and tutorials available for users to learn how to program the most basic things. They say that people who never know the code can still do it and the goal is to turn sports such as soccer, basketball, etc. can also be robotized.
