ITS Campus, ITS News – Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) has never been slack in producing various innovations and technologies. Recently, the Creative Center Design Team from the Directorate of Innovation and Technology Science Area (DIKST) was awarded the 2022 Good Design Indonesia (GDI) award by the Ministry of Trade of the Republic of Indonesia (RI), last Thursday (8/12).
At the national-scale award event held at the BPPEI Building Auditorium, Jakarta, ITS won awards in the Indonesian Good Design category through three of its products. These include LRT Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Bekasi (Jabodebek); GESITS M1 Mini E-Scooter; and GESITS MD Series Medium E-Scooter.
The Chief Designer of the ITS Creative Center Design Team, Dr Agus Windarto, DEA PhD, revealed that this achievement was also the result of ITS collaboration with several partners. “We are working with PT INKA in realizing the Jabodebek LRT and with PT WIKA Industri Manufaktur in developing GESITS,” said Agus.
The first product that Agus and his team sparked was the Jabodebek LRT. Agus explained the Jabodebek LRT has many superior features and technological updates. “The Jabodebek LRT is the first light rail car in Indonesia,” he explained.
He revealed that the Jabodebek LRT designed by his team and PT INKA has a relatively light load, namely 30-35 tons. This step was taken to make the infrastructure used in LRT cheaper but balanced with high quality and solidity. “The Jabodebek LRT is prepared to become a fast, safe and comfortable LRT,” he said.
Furthermore, he also said that the Jabodebek LRT downstream had entered the trial phase. “It’s already in Jakarta and is being tested. Hopefully, it can be used massively soon,” said the innovation design practitioner and lecturer at the ITS Industrial Product Design Department.
Furthermore, the second product is the GESITS M1 Mini E-Scooter. This product is a modification of the first GESITS variation by changing the shape to smaller and slimmer. Adopting a contradictory concept, namely the retro-modern concept, this new version of GESITS is designed to comfort users. “The GESITS M1 Mini E-Scooter is designed to be a multi-gender vehicle,” he explained.
The final product is GESITS MD Series Medium E-Scooter. Agus explained that the medium and mini-series did not have such a significant difference. He added the only difference is in the completeness of the features and performance improvements. “In addition to the larger size, the capacity presented is also twice that of the mini-series,” he added.
Finally, the man who had spent six years in Europe added that the downstream of the two GESITS series is still preparing for production. He hopes that the launching process of these two products will be published in 2023.
The ITS DIKST creative manager said that the great and brilliant innovation that won this prestigious award would not have been possible without the golden hands behind it. Namely the design, engineering, marketing, and prototyping teams. “This achievement would not have been possible without the support of a great team,” he said proudly. (ITS Public Relations)
