The dedicated app comes with simple controls with easy-to-navigate menus, and a wealth of tutorials. It’s easy to use for children and newcomers alike. S1 is equipped with multiple sensors, 31 sensors to be exact, to help map the world around it, including six sensors on its intelligent body armor that detects hits. At the top of this robot, there’s a first-person view (FPV) camera that sends a live feed from S1 to the app. Using camera and machine vision technology, this robot is able to identify different objects automatically, it recognizes and responds to sounds, it is able to receive signals from other S1 units. It can perform six intelligent recognition functions, such as line follow, vision marker recognition, follow mode, clap recognition, gesture recognition, and S1 recognition.
Partnering with many schools, robotics clubs, organizations, DJI will also host the first RoboMaster S1 Challenge in August 2019 during RoboMaster finals in Shenzhen, China.
