Build it from Scratch

The robust RoboMaster S1 Educational Robot can easily be built from scratch with all its parts and screws. This will provide a hands-on experience with all the parts and definitely makes it so much more exciting while you at it.

Intelligent Controller

The intelligent controller provided is equipped with powerful technology, making it suitable to perform high-end functions. The controller is powered with an advanced CPU, and it can simultaneously control functions such as low-latency high-definition image transmission, AI computing, and programming development. Having all of this featuring in the intelligent controller, makes this unit extraordinary as it can also coordinate transmission seamlessly to accomplish command signals.

S1 Blaster

The DJI RoboMaster S1 Educational Robot features many functions and exciting stuff to do, one of them being the Blaster that utilises LED lights to outline launch trajectories for its gel beads and infrared beams. When firing, the blaster also incorporates sound effects and recoil action added to give the feel of being in a real battle simulation.

2-Axis Mechanical Gimbal

While enjoying yourself and having endless battles against opponents, the RoboMaster S1 from DJI also sports a 2-axis mechanical gimbal that provides a yaw/pitch rotation of 540 x 64, offering an expansive field of view for the FPV camera built-in. Powering the 2-axis mechanical gimbal: a built-in direct drive brushless motor along with the IMU and advanced algorithms to perform the gimbal movements with a vibration control accuracy with 0.02, for an absolute smooth image transmission and smooth operation.

Mecanum Wheels

Featuring 4 tough Mecanum wheels, with each of them having 12 rollers to permit omnidirectional movement and accurate control. The front axis suspension of the RoboMaster S1 from DJI allows for added versatility while operating the RoboMaster S1 Robot.

High-Performance & Powerful Motor

Built-in to this education robot is a customised M3508I motor that ensures speed and many more functions, with an integrated FOC ESC with an output torque of up to 250 mN.m. Continuing with its success, the DJI RoboMaster S1 is also powered with Linear Hall-effects sensors along with advanced algorithms that enables closed-loop control for added accuracy.

Intelligent Sensing Armor

The construction of the RoboMaster S1 is equipped with six intelligent Armor panels, covering the S1 to detect gel bead or infrared beam strikes. It also features a referee system that can detect and communicate hit data straight into the real-time and gameplay.

Scratch & Python Programming

The educational robot allows youngsters that are willing to better their knowledge and develop custom skills, with Scratch 3.0 and Python programming languages. Take your knowledge & abilities to the next level whether you a beginner or a pro.

AI Technology for Advanced Features

Experience a variety of high-performance features in the DJI RoboMaster S1 Educational Robot, all thanks to advanced AI Technology that it implements. The AI Technology is advance enough to recognise sounds, gestures, and even other DJI S1 Robots. Some features of the AI Technology include Line Recognition; Vision Marker Recognition; People Recognitions, Clapping Recognition; Gesture Recognitions & S1 Robot Recognition.
