BANDUNG-Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) through a joint team with South Korean students succeeded in making a tool to perform health tracking based on turbidity and color of urine called Re-Lease.
It turns out that the tool managed to become champion in the event of Engineering Education Festa 2017 Capstone Design Fair International Session (E2FESTA 2017) which took place in South Korea recently.
The competition is held at Kimdaejung Convention Center, Gwangju, South Korea and initiated by Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy South Korea and Korea Association of Innovation Centers for Engineering Education.
Being one of the participants of the Indonesian delegation team, the ITB team managed to defeat a number of other superior competitors from Asia. Recorded as participants in this competition include ITB (Indonesia), PENS (Indonesia), Tel-U (Indonesia), KLE TECH (India), HKUST (Hong Kong), NUS (Singapore), NTU (Singapore), RMUTT Thailand), SCUT (China), KIT (Japan), CBNU (South Korea), CNU (South Korea), JNU (South Korea), NCKU (Taiwan), and UKM (Malaysia).
Re-Lease ITB team went through a long journey in preparing the concept of this device, about 6 months ie 4 months to finalize the idea and 2 months for product workmanship. Progress report is also carried out regularly every week on the faculty lecturer from the course of Mechanical Engineering and Product Design.
Through this competition each participant will learn to integrate every discipline to build a useful product. The most important thing of this race is teamwork that is built because the team must consist of cross-discipline, cross-cultural, and cross country so that communication ability of a team must really build so that the quality of product can be maximized.
"Through this race, we are very pleased not only because the Grand Prize is obtained but the idea of our products is acceptable to the international community," said Freddy Kurniawan, a member of this ITB team. Jo
