ITS Campus, ITS News – The Sapuangin Team of Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) again made an international scale achievement. By developing the track and driving scheme through programming. The ITS team won second place in the Asia 2021 Shell Eco-Marathon (SEM) Autonomous Programming competition which announces online. Friday (26/3).
In this competition, ITS Sapuangin Team showed more performance Electrical Division. As explained by the Head of the Electrical Division (Kadiv) of the ITS Sapuangin Team, Muhammad Samsul Arifin, his team developed the track, perception, and control algorithm for autonomous vehicles in this competition using the Melodic version of the Robot Operating System (ROS).
Furthermore, He explained that the code was created from ROS, run using Microsoft Airsim on Unreal engine. The Head of the Electrical Division, Who is familiarly called Samsul, also said that the programming languages used were C ++ and Python, based on the Ubuntu Linux 18.04 operating system.
This eighth-semester student of the Engineering Physics Department said He also admitted that the work in this competition was new work that had never been made by the Sapuangin Team before. “Our team started from scratch in building simulations for this competition,” claims Samsul. Even though this is the first time participating in this kind of Autonomous Programming competition, the Sapuangin ITS Team still managed to prove its skills.
Also added by ITS Sapuangin Team External Relations Staff Rida Ayu Arfianti. The SEM Asia 2021 competition, usually held offline has been switched online due to the pandemic. This competition takes place from January to March 2021. Since a month before this competition, this 32-member team has prepared many things, from studying the competition rules, preparing the space required to the required hardware.
However, Rida revealed, the pandemic situation and campus lockdown at that time made the team’s activities and communication limited, online only. Besides, at first, the hardware specifications for this competition had become an obstacle. Behind the existing obstacles, the team guided by Ir Witantyo MEngSc and Dr. Ir Atok Setiyawan MEngSc managed to become the team with the second most effective trajectory and energy consumption, setting aside 100 teams from all regions.
Rida then explained the assessment category in this competition. She said the efficiency assessment was divided into four, namely regarding the time and distance traveled, energy consumption, and CPU Usage. In addition to efficiency, the goals obtained during the simulation are also assessed. The points from the two are then accumulated to become the final point. “Our team earned 41 points and finally won second place,” said the student from Blitar.
The expression of the ITS Sapuangin Team’s happiness when it won the champion award that was given onlineAfter winning a competition that had never been participated in before, Rida hopes that in the future the Sapuangin Team can participate in similar competitions. “The work that we have made will be saved and become a benchmark for development for next year’s competition,” concluded the 2018 class student.
