Cutting-edge technologies to support classroom learning
DJI RoboMaster EP Core is made of steel and finished with a sleek, futuristic design. It is also fully equipped with cutting-edge technologies :
- A durable and flexible robotic arm supporting video piloting,
- A gripper featuring convenient structural design and adjustable gripping force to firmly and reliably grasp and move objects of various shapes, weights, and sizes,
- Four Mecanum wheels, each with 12 rollers that allow omnidirectional movement, completed by front axis suspension for added versatility during operation,
- A high performance Servo which supports customized control abilities through the EP Core’s main control board and ensures high control accuracy,
Sensor Adaptors & Power Connector Modules to connect and power third-party hardware and sensors, enabling you to create custom programs and applications,
- An intelligent controller to coordinates transmission seamlessly and execute command signals,
- An infrared distance sensor with a measurement range of 0.1-10 meters which enables the EP Core to sense its environment and avoid obstacles,
- And a high-performance motor with an output torque of up to 250 mN•m and linear Hall-effect sensors for added precision.
Control and program the robot from your phone!
DJI RoboMaster EP Core is WiFi enabled and can easily be controlled from your phone. There are main panels in the app :
The app will enable you to see from your phone what the wide range camera on the robot is filming (FPV perspective). You can also use the app joysticks to easily control the robot and have it move in any direction or use the gripper to pick up an object.
The RoboMaster App offers different battle modes:
- Race mode: (1 player) Arrange vision markers as checkpoints and scan them as fast as possible to win the game
- Free-for-all mode: (2 players) Battle up within the limited time and win the game
- Conquest-mode: (multiple players) A team competition where Red and Blue teams compete to capture vision markers arranged as bases around the arena.
In addition, there is a bigger Competition Database that gives easy-to-understand rules and instructions for a wide variety of competitions such as Search and Rescue, Air-to-Ground Cooperation or Intelligent Warehouse. This database is ideal for educators willing to get games up and running with their class quickly and efficiently, testing the learning outcomes in a fun and exciting way.
