DJI recruiting participants for Global Robotics Competition

Robotics experts, this is all you.


Are you a talented roboticist? Want to win $75,000? You may want to enter RoboMaster, drone manufacturer DJI's annual robotics competition.

For the fifth year running, the outfit is looking for engineers to participate in the 2019 RoboMaster Competition. It's an international competition that welcomes all universities and students interested in technology and engineering. You can sign up here, if you think you've got what it takes, but be advised you'll be up against some pretty stiff competition.

The competition takes place each year and will give away $75,000 for the winning team, $45,000 for second place, and $15,000 for third. Teams can consist of full-time college and university students, instructors, and eternal advisors. Competitors will need to submit engineering proposals and achieve technical milestones while preparing their robotics, and after they've been shortlisted, they'll have the opportunity to create their own robots.

If you know a group of awesome, talented creators and are looking to get into the robotics game, check out the full set of rules here. The fifth year of competition is bound to be pretty fierce. And hey – if you're planning to participate, make sure you let us know so we can all cheer you on!
