Documentation Status

RoboMasterPy is a RoboMaster Python SDK and framework:

  • Python SDK: inspect and control your Robomaster, remotely;
  • framework: development framework providing and regularising control flow and data flow, resolving common needs like pulling and parsing on video stream, events and pushes, decoupling boilerplate codes like controlling loop, logging, graceful shutdown. You may rely on the framework, implement your business logic with ease of mind and less manual labor.

The SDK(client) is straightforward to use:

>>> import robomasterpy as rm

# IP of RoboMaster is detected under router mode
>>> cmd = rm.Commander()

# check RoboMaster's API version
>>> cmd.version()

>>> cmd.get_robot_mode()

# ensure your Robomaster has enough room to move
>>> cmd.chassis_move(x=-1, z=30)

# activate video streaming,
# which can be handled by the framework.

# activate gimbal attitude push at 5Hz,
# which can be handled by the framework.
>>> cmd.gimbal_push_on(attitude_freq=5)

# Watch out!
>>> cmd.blaster_fire()

The framework lets you create complicated application easier, e.g.:

RoboMasterPy Goalkeeper


RoboMasterPy requires Python 3.6 and above.

Install Dependencies First

If you are using Python 3.6.x, you need to install dataclasses, which is already included in Python 3.7 and better:

pip install dataclasses

Install OpenCV of your flavor, suggestion::

# if you are using conda
conda install -c conda-forge opencv

# if you are using pip only
pip install opencv-contrib-python

Install RoboMasterPy

pip install robomasterpy
