Jetson TX2 Powers Top Two Teams in RoboMaster AI Challenge

Take the best and brightest engineers on the planet. Give them a challenge that’s equal parts engineering, strategy and teamwork. Bring them to a battlefield in front of hundreds of roboticists and researchers. And throw in a healthy bounty of prizes for the winners. Now kick it up a notch with robots and AI.

This is RoboMaster, a robotics competition that pits university students against each other in a battle of engineering and smarts. This year’s winner, I Hiter, and runner-up, Critical HIT, both built their robots on the NVIDIA Jetson TX2 supercomputer on a module. NVIDIA also sponsored the event, officially known as the DJI RoboMaster AI Challenge, which took place last week at ICRA, the premier forum for robotics research, in Brisbane, Australia.
