ITS Campus, ITS News – Institut Teknologi Sepuluh November (ITS) once again made a brilliant achievement in the world of national robotics. Unmitigated, this time the ITS Bayucaraka team managed to win eight titles in the 2021 Indonesian Flying Robot Contest (KRTI) organized by the National Achievement Center of the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture in collaboration with Sebelas Maret University (UNS) Surakarta for six days and ended on Saturday (Saturday). 20/11) ago.

Bagus Alifah Hasyim, General Manager of ITS Bayucaraka, explained that the ITS Bayucaraka team was deployed in four competition divisions in this competition. Among them are the Racing Plane (RP), Fixed Wing (FW), Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL), and Technology Development (TD) divisions. “While the TD division itself has three subdivisions, namely TD Propulsion System, TD Air Frame Innovation, and TD Flight Controller,” said Bagus.

Experiencing an increase in the championship title compared to the previous year, the flying robot Jatayujet_10 carried by the ITS Bayucaraka team succeeded in bringing the first winner in the Racing Plane division. Bagus considered that the increase was due to the previous year’s improvisation of designs and rides. “In addition, we are also trying to develop strategies for control system techniques,” said the ITS Mechanical Engineering Department student.

There is a job desk division in the Racing Plane, continued Bagus. Namely, the mechanic in charge of carrying out the manufacturing process, the electronics division in charge of arranging the electronics used, and the Ground Control Station (GCS) division in charge of making arrangements for the vehicle’s mission. “Here, the electronics division is the most crucial division because it plays a role in determining the performance of the robot,” he explained.

In the VTOL division, the ITS Bayucaraka team also won the Best Design winner and the 2nd winner. The Soeromiber squad, which is the name of this division team, had to compete indoors and was not allowed to use the Global Positioning System (GPS), so the rides had to be done with image processing or a complete program. In the VTOL division, the Soeromiber team was asked to place the load accurately at the specified point even though there were obstacles or obstacles.

In terms of performance, Bagus considers that there has been a significant increase in research this year in the VTOL division. This is because his team was able to carry out missions using image processing this year. However, the Soeromiber team experienced a slight difference from the opposing team when viewed from the position and speed. “Even so, we are quite satisfied because we can consistently and perfectly excel at every stage,” said the young man from Depok, West Java.

Meanwhile, the Bayusuta team, representing the TD division, continued Heri, winning the predicate in each competition subdivision. The Bayusuta team managed to get third place in the TD Air Frame Innovation this time. While in the TD Propulsion System, ITS has increased its title to become the second winner. “In the Propulsion System division, the Bayusuta robot was tested from the motor’s ability to perform thrust, current, and pressure when the motor worked optimally,” said Bagus.

Not only that, he continued, the Bayusuta team also managed to get the first runner-up on the TD Flight Controller. In this category, the team developed from the previous year by doing modules for drones and planning all the use of sensors. Meanwhile, they also got the same title in the TD GCS subdivision. At GCS, the team was asked to create a GCS box and an application on a website.

In the TD Flight Controller division, the Bayusuta team brought propeller innovation using cigarette butt waste injection molding method. However, Bagus considered that the invention was less than optimal. The reason is, when testing using a vehicle, the motor continues to vibrate and break in the air because it is unable to withstand a high enough load due to vibration. “In the future, we have to set a strategy to produce a higher quality motorcycle,” he said.

In the Fixed Wing division, the Anaryadirga team that represented it was quite satisfied because it could win the first prize, different from the previous year, which was only able to complete the mission. The plane made by this team had to fly as far as 5 kilometers to carry out aerial mapping, dropping, and monitoring. In addition, aircraft in this division are required to drop a small package measuring 5x5x5 cm in the designated zone and then return to the take-off place.

According to Bagus, his team experienced problems due to the Covid-19 pandemic, so it wasn’t easy to research. In addition, the lack of readiness in studying the Standard Operational Procedure (SOP) is also an obstacle in conducting competition. “So there is one division where we feel the SOP is lacking, so during the competition, its performance also decreases,” said Bagus.

Even so, Bagus admitted that he was pretty satisfied with the Bayucaraka team’s achievements at the 2021 KRTI. He felt that the team’s readiness to face this competition was quite good. However, he hopes to improve in the coming year, especially during presentations and meetings with the judges. “In the future, we are targeting to be able to get the overall champion like last year and be able to continue to fight in other prestigious competitions,” he concluded optimistically.
