"Physics is one of the basic sciences that has become the main driver of the development of advanced technology and has a role in producing industrial revolutions from industry 1.0 to industry 4.0 which is characterized by massive use of the internet in various activities known as the Internet of Things (IoT)," said Akhiruddin Maddu.
To increase scientific and technological literacy for students, a Coaching Clinic on Robotics and IoT was held. In this coaching clinic several types of robots and IoT devices were introduced as a result of innovations and creations of students and alumni of the Department of Physics of IPB University under the auspices of the Physics Research Club (PRC). Robotics and IoT Coaching Clinic delivered by Sejatera Ahamad, SSi, alumni of Physics Research Club (PRC). In this coaching clinic, the components and working principles of robots and IoT are explained.
Students are very enthusiastic about receiving new knowledge about robotics technology and the Internet of Things (IoT), even high school students are very interested in learning and exploring this robotics and IoT technology.
