ITS Campus, ITS News – The Ichiro robot team, proud of the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh November (ITS), again made a proud achievement in the international arena. Carrying the name ITS, the Ichiro Team won 13 awards simultaneously in the annual international FIRA Humanoid Robot Cup (HuroCup) 2022, which was announced after the final ended Tuesday (23/8).
Muhammad Afdhil Islammy, Ichiro ITS Team Leader, said the HuroCup competition is held by the Federation of International Robot Sports Association (FIRA) every year. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s competition will still be held online. The EuroCup competition focuses on developing the field of humanoid robotics, which designs robots to walk, balance, and perform complex movements.
The ITS Ichiro team itself has participated in this prestigious world event since 2016 in a row. Since 2016, the ITS Ichiro Team has never been absent to defend the championship and awards from various categories held. “The participation of the ITS Ichiro Team for the first time in 2016 won 10 awards and continues to grow every year,” said the student who is often called Afdhil.
Participated by various world-class universities from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Russia, and Malaysia, in the FIRA HuroCup 2022 competition, each team competed in five categories of competition. “The five categories, namely Archery, Basketball, Triple Jump, Sprint, and Weightlifting and the ITS Ichiro Team itself follows the four categories except for Triple Jump,” said this Physics Engineering Department student.
This fourth-year student explained that in the Archery category, the robots of the participants were challenged to do an archery sport where the arrow closest to the target, the robot will get the highest points. “Then for the Basketball category, robots are challenged to be able to put the ball into the basketball hoop with different distances and points,” explained Afdhil.
Furthermore, Afdhil explained, the Sprint category requires the robot to run forwards and backward as quickly as possible. While in the Weightlifting category, the robot will lift several loads in the form of a Compact Disc (CD). “In the Weightlifting category, the winner is determined by how much weight the robot can lift,” he added.
The ITS Ichiro team, founded in 2012, has deployed three superior robots divided into Adult Size and Kid Size classes. First, Robot Ichiro Adult Size, which has a height of about 75 centimeters and 8 kilograms, won 1st Place in Sprint, 2nd Place in Weightlifting, 2nd Place in Basketball, 3rd Place in Archery, and 2nd All-round (General) Champion.
The second robot, Ichiro Kid Size 1, which has a height of 50 centimeters and weighs 5 kilograms, won 2nd Place in Basketball, 3rd Place in Sprint, 3rd Place in Weightlifting, and 3rd Place in All-round. The last robot, Ichiro Kid Size 2, won 1st Place in Weightlifting, 2nd Place in Sprint, 3rd Place in Basketball, and 2nd All-round Champion. “That way, Team Ichiro won 13 awards at the 2022 FIRA HuroCup,” Afdhil said proudly.
According to Afdhil, this success did not escape the innovations developed by the ITS Ichiro Team. Innovations in the robotic claws made of type 7 aluminum and an efficient design have brought the ITS Ichiro Team success. “With the claw design, the ITS Ichiro Team robot can participate in all competition categories without having to modify it first, so that it can lead the ITS Ichiro Team to win the All-round Champion,” he continued.
Responding to the proud achievements, Afdhil hopes that the ITS Ichiro Team will always be consistent in developing robotic innovations. “In addition, hopefully, next year, the FIFA HuroCup event can take place offline so that the ITS Ichiro Team can win more awards due to our many leading categories competed offline,” he concluded.
