Second, PTS Siluman (Detection) team coins a prototype of an unmanned surface vessel functioning as illegal fishing detector in Indonesian waters. Third, a SBARED team makes smart arm bed for decubitus sufferers. Fourtht, REDEMPTION team designs report data energy using smart terminal and mobile.

“We proud of these four teams since they could pass to PIMNAS with high scores. UMY achieved an award of Green Campus and the ELSTOR is renewable energy. Thus, if we used the product, 300 stairs at this university can already have turned on 8-9 electronics. Besides, illegal fishing in Indonesian waters underlain the making of the PTS Siluman, an unmanned surface vessel being able to respond voices. Then, the SBARED innovates a bed for decubitus sufferers whose skin look red due to pressure or friction between skin and a bed for long time. Last, REDEMPTION coins renewable energy since the team would like to support government’s campaign,” explained Sugito. Sugito also expected that the teams can obtained medals as UMY’s tradition in joining PIMNAS.

I believe that your courage to defend your principles rationally will lead you to be the winner. Hence, you can make a history for the next generation,” he emphasized.
