ITS Rector  Prof. Dr. Ir Mochamad Ashari MEng said that the conducted discussion extends ITS collaboration with Panasonic. The Rector, familiarly called Ashari, explained that four clusters at ITS could work with Panasonic. Such as Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Robotics cluster, Maritime cluster, Automotive cluster, and Creative Design cluster. “Therefore, this discussion activity is carried out so that collaboration can occur between the ITS clusters and Panasonic,” he said.

In response to this, the Vice President Director of PT Panasonic Gobel Life Solutions Manufacture Indonesia Heru Santoso also said that ITS always prioritizes its development, especially in innovation and research. “We want to see what forms of cooperation can be done with ITS in the future,” said Heru.

In the discussion session, the ITS Information Technology, Communication, and Robotics Innovation Cluster Unit Manager (ITS Robotics), Dr. Ir Endroyono DEA, hoped that Panasonic could work closely with the cluster he leads at ITS at this time. “Panasonic can assist in certifying more than 300 talent development from ICT Robotics,” explained the Department of Electrical Engineering lecturer.

In addition, he added that Panasonic could help ITS develop research products into products that are ready for mass production by the industry. Endroyono also revealed that ITS students could support realizing small programs owned by Panasonic.

Meanwhile, the Director of Research and Community Service (DRPM) ITS, Agus Muhammad Hatta ST MSi PhD explained that there are still many ship accessories in Indonesia imported from abroad. Therefore, he hopes that Panasonic can cooperate with ITS to create its ship accessories. “This is to reduce the import activity,” he said.

Hatta also explained that ITS students had researched insect repellent lamps. Therefore, he also expects assistance from Panasonic to develop the tool to be ready for industrial production. “We just need to determine what color can repel these pests,” said a lecturer at the Engineering Physics Department.

Not stopping there, Hatta proposed a commemoration day, specifically the International Day of Light. They commemorated the day by installing lights throughout Surabaya with the concept of night landscaping on May 16, 2022. “In this activity, street lights in Surabaya will be fitted with lamps from Panasonic and facilitated by 5G features,” explained the alumni from the Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland.

At the end of the discussion session, Ashari hoped that ITS could do an internship at Panasonic to realize the Independent Learning program launched by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology (Kemendikbudristek) RI. In addition, this professor of Electrical Engineering also hopes that all research and technology development can be assisted and accompanied by Panasonic. “Hopefully, this cooperation can be realized and continue to be well established,” concluded Ashari optimistically.
