Winner: Spirit of Shell Eco-marathon Asia Award
Team Apatte 62 wanted to utilise their STEM skills and research to develop innovative solutions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Together with the Task Force of Universitas Brawijaya they developed "Satgas COVID-19 UB", a remote-controlled robot designed to help sterilize surrounding areas by emitting UV rays that have been found to be effective in killing bacteria and viruses such as COVID-19.
As passionate energy efficiency enthusiasts, the team also organised discussions and brainstorming sessions with other teams in the region on how to reduce vehicle emissions. Together with teams such as Antasena and Garnesa, Team Apatte 62 developed innovative solutions to reducing shipping emissions, working with other teams to help produce prototype parts.
