Singapore (19/01/17) – Telkom University relisted achievement in International robot championship in Singapore, Thursday afternoon (19/1). The two categories that managed to bring the name of Indonesia in the Singapore Science Centre were Open Category and RC Underwater Robot Category.
The robot patrons Telkom University, Muhammad Ikhsan Sani and Simon Siregar said the Singapore Robotic Games 2017 (SRG2017) was a prestigious annual competition – the collaboration of IEEE Robotics and Automation Society. This event was followed by many reputable Universities and schools from all over the world, and this event goes to 24th times this year.
“It’s not easy to reach this stage, but with hard work and support from other parties, we are grateful to be able to carve the record champions in Singapore.
