At the KRI Region II level yesterday, it is very unfortunate that the KOMPOR UPI robot team of the KRAI division represented by the ISOLAR team has not succeeded in qualifying for the National level. Nevertheless, the ISOLA_LIO team managed to pass the KRSRI Division (Indonesian Search and Rescue Robot Contest) to the national level.
From June 29 to July 3, the KOMPOR UPI SAR robot team is ready to carry out KRI at the national level at the Ten November Institute of Technology (ITS). After preparations for yesterday’s regional contest, the KRSRI division is ready to compete on the national level. According to Zahirul, the head of the KRSRI team, “The ISOLA_LIO Robot Team will hopefully be able to compete with top robot teams such as ITS, PENS, and ITB at the national level”.
Keep the spirit of the UPI KOMPOR robot team, hopefully the KRSRI ISOLA_LIO team can achieve achievements at the KRI at the National level and can make the good name of the University of Education Indonesia.
