Introducing RoboMaster Tello Talent
The new RoboMaster TT Tello Talent drone provides flight, programming and in-flight data processing capabilities.
DJI Education expands globally and plans to work with schools to provide students and teachers with extensive STEAM resources
Introducing the new RoboMaster TT Tello Talent drone new flight, programming and in-flight processing capabilities. RoboMaster TT enhances the original Tello EDU drone with AI and one-touch drone group programming, as well as an open source ESP32 computing chip, 256 LED dot matrix display and ToF sensor for obstacle detection. RoboMaster TT makes it easy to enter the world of robotics and artificial intelligence technologies. A funny miniature drone with a convenient and intuitive application will be a powerful tool in learning how to work with technology.
“We are excited to introduce a new product and our education support system. We have expanded DJI Education to enable educators and students around the world to experiment with exciting and flexible technologies that will be a great tool for a new generation of tech innovators,” said Jianrong Gao, CEO of DJI Education. “RoboMaster TT is designed for students to expand their knowledge and skills in artificial intelligence, robotics and programming in a fun and understandable way. This tool will help you move from simple experiments to developing real world-changing applications.”
Powerful hardware with advanced software
RoboMaster Tello Talent, designed to improve the skills and talents of students in the field of robotics, features a powerful ESP32 microcontroller board to provide open source Arduino and MicroPython platforms that support offline coding. Users will see their codes come to life by changing the color and frequency of the RoboMaster TT’s 256 programmable color LEDs. You can also create simple shapes, animations and a ticker effect on the red and blue 8×8 LED dot matrix display on the RoboMaster TT.
Ideal for school use, the RoboMaster TT features an optional infrared Time of Flight (ToF) sensor similar to the sensor built into the DJI RS 2, Inspire 2 and Mavic 2 Pro. It provides detection at a distance of up to two meters. The ToF sensor allows you to recognize nearby obstacles, ensuring indoor flight safety.
You will also be able to program a group of drones to perform individual tasks using programming languages such as Scratch, Swift and Python using the new software.
DJI Education was launched in Australia in 2020, providing students with Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) opportunities, helping to incorporate cutting-edge technology into student and STEAM curricula. DJI has made initial investments in the form of donations, cash prizes, subsidies, marketing funds and sponsorship for the first round of an educational campaign at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). DJI Education is expanding around the world, working with schools to provide students from all over the world with the same opportunities.
DJI began investing in robotics education back in 2013 with the first University Robotics Summer Camp. DJI hosted the first RoboMaster tournament for university teams in 2015. The teams had to program squads of robots to fight each other. Every year, DJI expands the size of the tournament, providing an arena for students from all over the world to realize their passion for science and technology and showcase their talents. DJI has continued to build and release products focused on STEAM education with the launch of the Tello EDU drone in 2018, the RoboMaster S1 robot in 2019, and the RoboMaster EP Core robot in 2020.
One stop shop for educators
DJI Education has also created a new center for educators to incorporate technical education into their curriculum. The Center is a convenient one-stop-shop for everything STEAM-related, complete with a web platform, classroom management system, machine-graded exams, discussion forums, and learning materials. Teachers can give homework assignments, run online competitions, and even incorporate the powerful DJI simulator into their curriculum, delivering and assessing knowledge in a fun and understandable way. The center is also compatible with third-party resources, providing great educational opportunities. For details, please visit: https://edu.dji.com/hub/
