Prestasi membanggakan di kancah internasional kembali datang dari bidang robotika Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS). Kali ini, tim Barunastra ITS yang merupakan tim kapal robotika atau roboboat berhasil memborong juara di ajang International Roboboat Competition (IRC) 2021 yang diselenggarakan oleh RoboNation, lembaga yang berfokus pada pengembangan teknologi robotik dan berbasis di Amerika Serikat, yang digelar secara daring, Senin (28/6). Mengusung Nala Poseidon, roboboat virtual tersebut berhasil membawa tim Barunastra ITS menuju kemenangan pada kompetisi yang diikuti 14 peserta dari enam negara di dunia. Nala Poseidon berhasil membawa kembali juara dalam tiga kategori yang ada pada IRC 2021. Juara 1 pada kategori Skills Video (Hull Design), Juara 1 kategori Website, dan Juara 2 kategori Technical Design Report. Marisa Prawoto, Staf Hubungan Masyarakat (Humas) Eksternal Barunastra ITS, menjelaskan bahwa pada lomba kali ini kategori lomba tersebut adalah tiga output final yang akhirnya akan dilombakan dengan 14 tim lainnya. Ketiga output inilah yang kemudian akan menjelaskan kinerja kapal, desain yang digunakan, dan juga teknologi yang diimplementasikan. “Jadi output ini akan menjelaskan bagaimana ketiga hal itu bisa berpengaruh dan membantu kapal nanti ketika menjalankan misi,” jelasnya. Marisa menambahkan, terdapat total enam misi yang harus dijalankan oleh Nala Poseidon, yaitu Mandatory Navigation Channel, Speed Gate, Obstacle Channel, Obstacle Field, Acoustic Docking, dan Object Delivery. Semua misi yang ada merupakan sebuah pemodelan dari masalah yang terjadi secara rutin pada industri maritim. “Melalui Technical Design Report dan Skills Video, Barunastra ITS menjelaskan strateginya dalam menjalankan misi yang ada,” tutur mahasiswi asal Jakarta ini. Meskipun dalam kondisi pandemi Covid-19 dan lomba yang diadakan secara daring, tidak menyurutkan semangat tim Barunastra dalam merancang Nala Poseidon. Pada perlombaan kali ini, para peserta tidak perlu membuat prototipe secara fisik, melainkan hanya sebuah desain kapal mutakhir untuk menjalankan misi yang ada. Semua hasil karya tim yang terdiri dari 23 orang ini dapat diakses melalui situs barunastra.its.ac.id/IRC2021.html. Nala Poseidon sendiri merupakan pengembangan dari versi sebelumnya Nala G4. Nala Poseidon bisa mengerjakan semua misi dengan lancar sesuai dengan penjelasan pada Skills Video di situs tersebut. Menurut Marisa, IRC ini sendiri sudah secara rutin diikuti oleh tim Barunastra ITS, namun perbedaan terbesar dari perlombaan tahun ini yaitu diadakannya secara daring. Pada tahun ini, lomba diadakan sejak akhir April hingga Juni 2021. Meski dalam rentang waktu yang cukup lama, tim Barunastra ITS tetap melakukan persiapan matang guna mempersembahkan hasil yang terbaik kepada dewan juri. “Tim Barunastra tetap mengadakan upgrading dan monitoring secara berkala tiap minggunya,” ungkap mahasiswa Departemen Kimia ini. Ke depannya, tim Barunastra ITS masih bertekad untuk mempertahankan prestasi dan meningkatkan performanya dalam berbagai kompetisi baik di kancah nasional maupun internasional. Mereka optimistis bahwa riset yang mendalam dan kinerja tim yang baik akan membuka banyak kesempatan bagi tim ini. Barunastra akan kembali mengasah kemampuannya untuk mengokohkan posisinya sebagai salah satu tim robotik terbaik di dunia. (HUMAS ITS) Reporter: Muhammad Miftah Fakhrizal

ITS Campus, ITS News – Another proud achievement in the international arena has come from the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS). This time, the ITS Barunastra team, a robotics ship or roboboat team, managed to win a winner at the 2021 International Roboboat Competition (IRC) organized by RoboNation. This institution focuses on developing robotic technology-based in the United States, which was held online, Monday ( 28/6).

Carrying Nala Poseidon, the virtual roboboat succeeded in bringing the ITS Barunastra team to victory in the competition, which was attended by 14 participants from six countries worldwide. Nala Poseidon managed to get back the winners in the three categories at IRC 2021. 1st place in the Skills Video (Hull Design) type, 1st place in the Website category, and 2nd place in the Technical Design Report category.

Marisa Prawoto, External Public Relations (Humas) staff of Barunastra ITS, explained that the competition categories are three final outputs in this competition, which will eventually be contested with 14 other teams. These three outputs will then explain the ship’s performance, the design used, and the technology implemented. “So this output will explain how these three things can affect and help ships later when carrying out missions,” he explained.

Marisa added a total of six missions that must be carried out by Nala Poseidon, namely Mandatory Navigation Channel, Speed ​​Gate, Obstacle Channel, Obstacle Field, Acoustic Docking, and Object Delivery. All missions are a model of the problems that occur routinely in the maritime industry. “Through the Technical Design Report and Skills Video, Barunastra ITS explained its strategy in carrying out the existing mission,” said the student from Jakarta.

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic and the online competition, it did not dampen the enthusiasm of the Barunastra team in designing Nala Poseidon. In this competition, the participants do not need to make a physical prototype, but only a sophisticated ship design to carry out the existing mission.

All the work of the team consisting of 23 people can be accessed through the site barunastra.its.ac.id/IRC2021.html. Nala Poseidon itself is a development of the previous version of Nala G4. According to the explanation on the Skills Video on the site, Nala Poseidon can carry out all missions smoothly.

According to Marisa, IRC itself has been routinely followed by the ITS Barunastra team, but the most significant difference from this year’s competition is that it is held online. This year, the competition was born from the end of April to June 2021. Although the ITS Barunastra team still made careful preparations to present the best results to the jury in an extended period. “The Barunastra team continues to carry out regular upgrading and monitoring every week,” said this Chemistry Department student.

In the future, the ITS Barunastra team is still determined to maintain its achievements and improve its performance in various competitions both nationally and internationally. They are optimistic that in-depth research and good team performance will open up many opportunities for this team. Barunastra will again hone his skills to solidify his position as one of the best robotics teams in the world. (ITS Public Relation)
