In this program, ITS collaborates with PT Pelindo TPK to create technology that can support training for employees at the company to recognize potential dangers in their surroundings. There are seven ITS lecturers and 12 ITS DTSI students who joined as researchers in developing this technology. The results of this collaboration were brought by the ITS and PT Pelindo TPK teams to compete in KIDE 2023 which was held for three days, starting last November 30.

The lecturer, who is usually called Adith, revealed that at KIDE 2023, MF Kedaireka ITS x PT Pelindo TPK brought two innovations to compete with 398 other innovative works from 30 different countries. “The two innovations are K3I.verse which competes in the Educational Item category and Bandar Safety which competes in the Information Communication Technology and Media category,” said the lecturer at the DTSI ITS Ergonomics and Work Systems Design (EPSK) Laboratory.
