ITS Campus, ITS News – The Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology (ITS) Robot Team is again ready to show resilience in the national and international robot contest, in the near future. Maintaining the championship was the target of the team under the auspices of the Robotics Student Activity Unit (UKM).
In 2019, the ITS robot team will again take part in two prestigious competition events at national and international levels. The first is the national level Indonesian Robot Contest (KRI) 2019 which will be held on June 20-23, 2019 at Dian Nuswantoro University (Udinus), Semarang.
There were five teams sent in this event, namely Team Ichiro (category of humanoid soccer robot), Team Iris (category of wheeled soccer robot), Team Abinara-1 (category of fire fighting robot), Team Vi-Rose (category of Indonesian dance robots) , and Tim Risma (ABU Indonesia robot category).
The ITS Robotics Team Supervisor, Muhtadin ST MT explained, four of the five teams sent had won the Regional IV KRI 2019, so they got a ticket to the 2019 National KRI. As for Team Ichiro, they received an invitation directly to 2019 National KRI. “This is certainly a challenge for us (ITS robot team, red) to give the best in the competition later,” he said.
In addition to participating in the national robot contest, ITS will also send its robot team in the Robocup 2019 competition held in Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre Darling Harbour, Sydney, Australia on July 2 – 8, 2019.
In the competition, ITS as the only representative from Indonesia who sent three teams, namely the team of humanoid soccer robots Ichiro Kid size and Ichiro Teen size, who will compete in the Humanoid Robot Soccer category. In addition there is also a team of wheeled soccer robots, Iris, who will compete in the Middle Size League Robot Soccer category.
Regarding the preparation in facing these two prestigious events, the man who is also the supervisor of the UKM Robotics ITS explained that he had made repairs to mechanical robots, electronic robot systems, and robot software. With this improvement, Ichiro Robot has a more agile movement in chasing the ball, and has the ability to kick the ball better, with the farther distance.
“Improvements in the software side can also cause robots to have a better ability to recognize the ball and estimate the position of robots in the soccer field,” said the lecturer of Computer Engineering Faculty of Electrical Engineering.
Meanwhile, the ITS Chancellor Prof Dr Ir Mochamad Ashari who released this team to compete said, he greatly appreciated the hard work of the ITS robot team so far in preparing themselves for these two prestigious events. High hopes were expressed to win all the titles of the contests joined. “Most importantly we remain proud of the achievements of this team that has raised the names of ITS and Indonesia in the international arena,” he concluded praising.
