SAS Robotics Team won 2nd place in Singapore Robotic Games 2018 competition. SAS Robotics Team supervised by Mr. Muhammad Ikhsan and Mr. Simon Siregar won second place in Open Category competition category. The Singapore Robotic Games 2018 (SRG2018) competition was held on Thursday, January 25th, 2018 at Annexe Hall 1, Science Center, Singapore.
SAS Robotics Team consists of Dzikri Hasbialloh (D3 Computer Engineering), M.Muchlis Kurnia (D3 Computer Engineering), Amalia Tamarizka Sihombing (D3 Computer Engineering), Icha Inggrid (D3 Computer Engineering), Lutfi Anota Sirpa (D3 Computer Engineering), Daud Al Adumy (D3Teknik Telekomunikasi) and M. Zein Ersyad (D3Informatika) managed to get rid of its competitors from various countries in ASEAN such as Indonesia , Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines.
In this race Robotics team featuring robot Angklung and robot Dirigen. Robot Angklung can play the song of Indonesia Raya and Majulah Singapore synchronize with the movement of the robot Dirigen. Angklung robot are connected with electric motors that can move in accordance with the music. In this open category came out as the winner is a team from Nanyang Polytechnic Singapore.
Muhammad Ikhsan as the lecturer of the SAS team explained that from Telkom Unviersity, there are 5 teams competing in this competition, in 5 categories: Open Category, RC Underwater Robot, Autonomous Underwater Robot, RC Sumo Robot and Autonomous Sumo Robot. In addition to the Faculty of Applied Sciences, also participated is robot team from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering.
“We (SAS team) have been preparing for this competition since September 2017, Angklung robot and Dirigen robot by SAS team from Faculty of Applied Sciences won second prize of Open Category.”
Ikhsan added that this competition provides valuable international experience in the field of robotics technology for members of the Robotic SAS team. “We are grateful to be able to defend the Open Category II championship, but we learned a lot from teams in ASEAN, there is still much to be done to improve the performance of our robots and the capabilities of the pilot / operator robot, in the future we wish to reach more achievements in the international competition, “he said.
Congratulations to the Robotics team!
