Alfarobi, one of the robots produced by students of Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) is declared to get through to the National Indonesian Robotic Contest to be held in July 2017 at Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia, Bandung. Alfarobi passed the selection after being declared the third winner of Regional 4 Indonesian Robotic Contest at Universitas Brawijaya, Malang, from 4 - 6 May 2017.
Ilham Nur Ahmad from Gadjah Mada Robotic Team said Alfarobi became the third winner in the Football Robotic category, the first and second winners were Ichiro robot from ITS and Eros robot from PENS.
"We were excited with the win, and we went through to the National Robotic Contest (KRI) so we still have time for evaluation," said Ilham at Fortakgama room, UGM, on Tuesday (9/5).
Ilham explained the Alafarobi robot competed with five other robots from ITS, PENS, UAD, UNY and Universitas Brawijaya at Regional IV area because there were not many competing in this category in Regional III.
Ilham said the KRSBI contest at Universitas Brawijaya was done in half-season league system, hence the six teams would have the chance to compete with each other. Of five competitions, Alfarobi robot lost one and made four draws.
"We earned 4 points, equal with UAD and UB. So, an additional game was added on to determine the third and fourth winner through penalties. Of three kick trials, Alfarobi scored two whilst UAD and UB nil,” he said.
