Rosemery Robot won second place in the 2023 National Level Indonesian Robot Contest (KRI) at the Indonesian Dance Robot Contest (KRSTI) held offline on June 22-25, 2023, at the Universitas Semarang (USM). KRI was attended by 191 universities, with 393 teams divided into 7 categories.
KRI is a design and engineering competition in robotics organized by the National Achievement Center, Ministry of Education Culture Research and Technology. There are seven categories, namely the Indonesian ABU Robot Contest (KRAI), Indonesian SAR Robot Contest (KRSRI), Indonesian Football Robot Contest (KRSBI) Wheeled, Indonesian Football Robot Contest (KRSBI) Humanoid, Indonesian Dance Robot Contest (KRSTI), Indonesian Thematic Robot Contest (KRTMI), and Indonesian Underwater Robot Contest (KRBAI).
Rosemery consists of two beautiful humanoid twin robots that can dance according to this year's KRSTI theme, the Denok Dance from Semarang, Central Java. The Denok dance was successfully performed with agility and flexibility by these two twin robots. Rosemery Team Leader Dotu Perangga Sakti said that preparation was not only done on the two robots but also on the quality of the team.
The Rosemery Team's journey to this stage began with submitting proposals for prospective KRI teams. Teams that pass the first stage of proposal selection participate in the second stage by showing their robot performance online: sending a performance video or showing their robot in real-time through a video conference.
After that, the participants were divided into 2 regions, Rosemery Team was in Region I. This Regional stage selection is conducted to select robot teams that will be invited to live / offline at the 2023 National Level Indonesian Robot Contest at the University of Semarang (USM). The Rosemery UNY Team won 1st place in the Indonesian Dance Robot Contest at the Regional level so that they can participate in the Indonesian Dance Robot Contest at the National Level.
At the national level, the Rosemery UNY Team competed with 17 teams from 17 different universities throughout Indonesia. The Rosemery Team's struggle paid off by winning second place in the National Indonesian Dance Robot Contest (KRSTI).
