The robot was developed by Fareza Rizky Ramadhan (Electrical Engineering 2013), Dewa Satria Irawan (Electrical Engineering 2013), Aditya Putra Laksana (Electrical Engineering 2013), Amar Ma’ruf (Electrical Engineering 2014), and Swido Gari Tidargo (Electrical Engineering 2014).
As for KRSTI category, SAS Badaya team won 2nd place with Doi and Brew robot. Two robots were created by M. Abid Irwan (D3 Telecommunication Engineering 2014), Aris Pujud Kurniawan (Computer Systems 2015), M. Agung Baskoro (D3 Computer Engineering in 2013), and Lutfi Fauzi (D3 Telecommunication Engineering (2015). In making Doi and Brew robot, the team was also assisted by Megatari Wahyuningrum (D3 Computer Engineering), Indah Trizkiyani (D3 Computer Engineering), Rakhmi (Computer Systems), and Ryan Febriansyah (D3 Telecommunication Engineering).
KRSTI Category set Mask Betawi Dancer Robot as the theme. Each team is required to make a humanoid robot with a maximum of two automated robots and able to dance follow the music of Mask Betawi arts.
