ITS Campus, ITS News – Strengthening its prowess in the field of robotics, the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh November (ITS) again won the title of General Champion in the 2021 Indonesian Robot Contest (KRI), which was announced online at the closing ceremony, Saturday (16/9) night. Unmitigated, ITS’s position as the General Champion in KRI is the fourth time it has been maintained since 2018.
Located at Gadjah Mada University (UGM), Prof. Dr. Eng Drs. Benyamin Kusumoputro MEng, as the Second Jury, announced that the ITS robotics team managed to win ten victories in KRI 2021. The ten wins were won by five ITS robotics special teams, namely the RIOT Team, Team IRIS, ICHIRO Team, Vi-Ros Team, and ITS Rival Team.
In the national-scale robot contest held by the National Achievement Center (Puspresnas) of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology (Kemendikbudristek), the ITS robotics team competed in five competition divisions. The first division is the Indonesian ABU Robot Contest (KRAI) which took place on 29 September – 1 October 2021. In this division, the ITS robotics team was represented by the RIOT Team.
Unmitigated, the RIOT Team has started its achievements by successfully occupying the national 1st place podium. Thus, the RIOT Team from ITS can represent Indonesia to compete in the ABU Robocon 2021 international event on December 12, 2021, online in Jimo, China.
As if not satisfied with the predicate, the RIOT Team also won the title of Best Design Robot and was named the Robot with the Best Strategy. Through this achievement, the ITS RIOT Team has the right to bring home the Sambawana Cup, a rotating trophy handed over to the KRAI winner.
The jury carried out the handover of the Sambawana Cup. They were also accompanied by representatives of the Ministry of Education and Culture, as a symbol that the ITS RIOT Team was very worthy to represent Indonesia at the ABU Robocon event. It is hoped that the ITS RIOT Team can make the nation proud, especially ITS, by showing themselves in the international arena. “This is a very proud achievement for ITS,” said ITS Chancellor Prof. Dr. Ir Mochamad Ashari MEng gratefully.
Unlike KRAI, KRI 2021 in other divisions will only be held online from October 12-16. The divisions are the Indonesian Dance Robot Contest (KRSTI), the Indonesian Football Robot Contest (KRSBI) Wheeled and Humanoid, and the Indonesian Thematic Robot Contest (KRTMI).
In the KRSTI division, the ITS Vi-Ros Team managed to amaze the jury through the dance performances, as evidenced by the success of bringing home the 3rd Place trophy. Best Strategy award.
In the KRSBI-Humanoid division, the ITS ICHIRO Team won three championship titles at once. Among them is the 1st place prize in the dribbling competition category, 2nd place title in the robot cooperation competition category, and 3rd place title in the running competition category.
With the accumulation of these winners, no doubt the ITS ICHIRO Team won 1st place overall from the KRSBI-Humanoid division. While in the KRTMI division, the ITS Rival Team was able to reap achievements by eliminating all teams to crowned the first champions.
Responding to all the achievements made by the ITS robotics team, the ITS Chancellor, who is also an alumnus of ITS Electrical Engineering, expressed his gratitude to all team members involved. Remembering, through hard work and achievements, ITS can firmly be crowned as the General Champion of KRI at the national level.
This achievement, which seems to have become a tradition of the ITS robotics team, proves that ITS is the best university in robotics that has a significant influence on a national scale, even internationally. “ITS kids are amazing!” he said proudly.
Not to forget, the Chancellor, who is familiarly called Ashari, expressed his gratitude to the Ministry of Education and Culture, in particular the Puspresnas and the implementing committee, for organizing this KRI event. “So that students from all over Indonesia can develop their potential in the field of robotics,” he said.
In the end, Ashari, who was present at the closing ceremony and ITS high leaders, expressed his optimism in defending the overall title for the KRI performance in 2022. According to him, ITS is likely to continue the title, considering that the existing regeneration has student resources with enormous potential.
The professor of Electrical Engineering also hopes that this potential will continue to be developed, especially in terms of robotics, including programming, strategy, and mechanics. “Hopefully, with guidance by supervisors and support from ITS, it will bring victory in the KRI competition next year and so on,” he concluded optimistically.
