ITS Campus, ITS News – The proud robotics team of the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS), ICHIRO, and IRIS have again made proud achievements on the international stage. This time, ITS won a grand total of 24 awards at once at the international FIRA RoboWorld Cup 2023 in Woftenbuettel, Germany.

The Advisory Coordinator of the ITS Robotics Team, Muhtadin ST MT said this robot competition is held by the Federation of International Robot Sports Association (FIRA) every year. This offline robot competition focuses on developing robots that can move independently and perform particular tasks in a limited area.

This time, several world-class universities from Brazil, Mexico, Malaysia, Korea, Taiwan, Germany, and Russia participated in the FIRA RoboWorld Cup competition. The ICHIRO ITS team itself has participated in this prestigious world event since 2016 in a row.

“Since then, the ITS ICHIRO Team has never been absent from defending the championship titles and awards from the various categories held,” he said.

ICHIRO ITS Team Leader, Atha Andara Utomo, explained the team established in 2012 is participating again in the Humanoid Robot Cup (Hurocup) sub-competition.

“This sub-competition focuses on developing the field of humanoid robotics involving robots to walk, balance, and perform complex movements,” he explained.

Furthermore, it was explained that Hurocup is divided into two race classes based on the size and weight of the robot. The two classes are the Hurocup Pro Adult size height of up to 180 centimeters and weight of up to 50 kilograms, and the Hurocup Pro Kid size height of up to 60 centimeters and weight of up to 20 kilograms.

“For these two classes, ICHIRO ITS came down with three superior robots, namely ICHIRO Adult Size, ICHIRO Kid 1, and ICHIRO Kid 2,” he added.

In each of these classes, there are several competition categories; Archery, Basketball, Sprint, Mini DRC, Obstacle Run, Marathon, Allround, Soccer, and Lifting Weights. From these several categories, the Adult Size robot won 1st place in the Mini DRC category, Sprint Running, Obstacle Running, Archery, Weightlifting, and Marathon, 2nd place in the All Round category, and 3rd place in the Basketball category.

The Mechanical Engineering Department student continued the second robot with the name ICHIRO Kid Size 1 won 1st place in the Football category, 2nd place in the All Round, Mini DRC, and Obstacle Running categories, and 3rd place in the Sprint Running, Weightlifting, Basketball, and Marathon categories. The last robot, ICHIRO Kid Size 2 won 2nd place in the Marathon, Weightlifting, and Soccer categories and 3rd place in the All Round, Obstacle Running, and Mini DRC categories.

This success can not be spared from the innovation of the ITS ICHIRO Team by carrying out several developments from the previous robot. For the material for adult-size robots, ICHIRO ITS uses aluminum in several parts to reduce the robot’s weight and make it easier to move.

In addition, the claws design was also adjusted to enable the ICHIRO ITS Team robot to take part in all competition categories without having to modify them first and lead them to win the All-round Champion.

Another team that is no less proud is the IRIS ITS Team, which competed in the FIRA RoboWorld Cup 2023 Simulation Autonomous Car sub-competition. The participants are challenged to create an unmanned car programming language to be able to pass through obstacles and move as fast as possible.

The programming language will be simulated so that the performance of the unmanned car can be observed. The programming language they designed successfully carried the ITS IRIS Team to win first place.

That way, Muhtadin said, the robotics team represented by ICHIRO and IRIS brought home a grand total of 24 awards in the event from 17 to 21 July. He said he was proud of this achievement.

“Mature preparation and hard work from the ITS Robotics Team finally produced satisfying results,” he concluded. (ITS PR)
