Ahead of the industrial revolution 4.0, robotics technology has developed rapidly in the past few decades. Development of n Automation and use of robots in industry and other fields is predicted to keep increase in the future. Automation and use of robots will greatly help in increasing the efficiency of a process and the process will be more economical. The Development of Automation and Robotics Technology now widely used to help human activities. Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) as one of the center of technology in Indonesia also helped to develop automation and robotics technology through ITS Robotics Center.
ITS through the Directorate of Research and Community Service (DRPM) formed the Robotics Laboratory to advance robotics technology research to face challenges that may appear in the industrial revolution.
The Robotics Laboratory was established at the end of 2009. After inaugurated by Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, This laboratory begin to active on December 14th, 2010. Until now, ITS Robotics Center has four laboratories in operation, namely:
• Intelligent Robot Laboratory
• Production Robot Laboratory
• Industrial Sensor Laboratory
• Robot Control Laboratory.
In term of Robotics, ITS has pioneered research, development and education. This is marked by the success of ITS in winning national, regional and international competition and also Indonesian Robot Contests (KRI). ITS Robotics Centers through its studies, research, and applications have made several innovation that can be used to help and fulfill the society needs.
