DJI Digital FPV System

First-person view drone flying is getting more popular by the day. But delivering HD video feed from the flying gadget to the pilot in a low-latency way has been deemed an impossible task so far. Today’s analog video signal only offers low video quality resulting in an overall poor FPV experience.

DJI’s Digital FPV System is the next-gen solution to this and promises to move the FPV experience towards the future as DJI have designed a new digital FPV Transmission System with low latency.

This system consists of four highly integrated components.

First off, the lightweight and compact DJI FPV Air Unit is easy to install and features an internal HD video recorder with a robust FPV HD Camera that features a 2.1mm lens. You can view the feed with the FPV goggles that are comfortable to wear and display the video feed in HD resolution in super-smooth 120 frames per second. And an integrated video recorder lets you capture what the pilot sees on the ground.

The 8-channel remote controller is configurable via the goggles so FPV pilots can enjoy a better flying experience that combines HD video quality with low latency. The 8-channel support allows eight pilots to race simultaneously and an easy-to-use audience mode lets spectators enjoy the action effortlessly.

DJI really put this together as a full package thing. It’s all integrated. It’s all ready to go. You’re good.

It’s really durable and allows you to fly faster, with more confidence, with better vision and enjoy an immersive FPV flying experience. Truly impressive.

DJI RoboMaster S1 Educational Robot

DJI RoboMaster S1 Educational RobotFirst steps in robotics? Do you want to learn more about science, math, physics, and programming? Welcome to the world of RoboMaster S1 from DJI, an educational robot built to unlock the potential in every learner. A modular design lets you build your S1 from the ground up, furthering the fun and providing hands-on experience with every screw and wire.

DJI, the master of drones, has spent the last few years running a well-known robotic competition in China “RoboMasters”, where students build and code robots that do battle in the arena. Now it’s time for the company to release a more approachable version of the robot to kids and everyone in the world, and the result is the educational toy robot tank called the RoboMaster S1.

The S1 is both a camera-equipped remote-controlled car and educational platform, using hardware and software muscles. It can be driven using a mobile app or coded to move on its own. It’s equipped with 31 sensors that help it map its environment, and it can move in 360 degrees thanks to cleverly-designed wheels. The robot can recognize and respond to gestures and sounds, or track objects, all using computer vision.

The interesting thing is, the S1 can shoot projectiles in the form of little gel bead bullets. These beads come in super small form but puff up once submerged in water for a few hours; they’re nontoxic, but will require some cleanup after use. The RoboMaster S1 can also be driven with a controller, though that will be sold separately in an add-on package that includes an extra battery and more gel beads, which will be available at a later date.

The S1 comes disassembled, so you have to put almost every piece together just to get started. “The hope is that robotics will become a major sport, like football, basketball. That’s our vision for this product,” told Shuo Yang, the head of the S1 project.
