Shuo Yang on a robotics first-person shooter competition designed to get people excited about robotics.



In this episode, Audrow Nash interviews Shuo Yang about DJI's RoboMaster first-person shooter (FPS) competition, a competition designed to get people excited about robotics. For the competition, university teams build and program a robot to go against DJI's robots in a shooting battle.
