The lecturer of the Department of Computer Engineering explained that ITS as the implementing committee worked together to support the implementation of the KRI by utilizing the facilities from the existing labs. His party tried to give their best efforts, including providing a system for checking in and out of the match area in real-time to keep the room sterile from parties not related to the implementation of the competition.

The Acting Head of the National Achievement Center (Puspresnas), also the Head of the Indonesian Talent Development Center, Asep Sukmayadi SIP MSi, conveyed his pride in the surge in enthusiasm for the implementation of KRI 2022, which was shown by the increase in the number of participants.

Not to forget, Asep expressed his appreciation for the ITS Barunastra Team, who became the overall champion in the 2022 International Roboboat Competition (IRC) in Florida, United States, at the end of last June. “As the host, ITS gave us positive energy by catapulting Indonesia’s name into the international robotics scene,” he said proudly.

Asep emphasized that technological progress will challenge human work and work in the future. “Advances in robotics do not replace the role of humans as a whole but open up opportunities to allocate human resources to more valuable jobs,” he stressed.

Asep said his party wants to ensure superior talents can still actualize their potential and achievements in various situations and conditions. He hopes this year can continue to encourage achievements and find the best skills to be further prepared in technology. “Hopefully, the KRI 2022 event can also be enjoyed by the community and become an inspiration for mastering technology in the future,” he said.

ITS Chancellor Prof. Dr. Ir Mochamad Ashari MEng IPU AEng said that KRI is not only a place to show to facilitate student interests, ideas, and creativity in robotics technology. More than that, KRI prepares Indonesian human resources, especially in working with the nation to face the era of the industrial revolution 4.0, which is already running.

The Chancellor, familiarly called Ashari, continued that the KRI event will be continued at an international competition, namely the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU). Therefore, KRI is the first step to showing the number of Indonesian robotic talents. “KRI is a mirror of internationally recognized capabilities that our nation’s children are extraordinary in the field of robotics technology,” he said optimistically.
