Center (ER2C) is a Research Center at Electronic Engineering Polytechnic
Institute of Surabaya (EEPIS) which focusing in Robotics study, design and
implementation. ER2C started from the robotics community at EEPIS which
participate national and international robotics competition.
ER2C Vision is to be an Advenced Research Center in Robotics-Related field
not only nationally but also internationally as well.
Together we want to advance our research by conducting practical research in
robotics to resolve industrial and community problems. ER2C strives to
provide high quality research in robotic-related fields based on applied
approach which can enhance human's quality of live.
Electronic Engineering Politechnic Institute of Surabaya (EEPIS)
- The Electronic Engineering Polytechnic Institute of
Surabaya (EEPIS) (known locally as Politeknik Elektronika Negeri Surabaya
(PENS)) is a technical institution located in Indonesia. EEPIS strives to
provide high quality education in professional engineering in
electronic-related fields in order to produce engineers who will be
competitive in a global market. It also aims to serve its community by
conducting practical research to resolve industrial and community problems.
EEPIS Vision is to be a 'center of excellent' of professional engineering
education in electronic-related field nationally and internationally as
EEPIS Mission are
- To produce professional and open-minded graduation, ready to compete in
global market, by providing an excellent academic atmosphere for the
- To actively involved in development and enhancement of Indonesian
Polytechnic Education system as EEPIS being the National Resources
- To carry out an applied oriented research which actually solve the
industrial problem and community services to the society; both of them are
the synergetic activities of EEPIS as professional education provider. To
develop and implement the academic moral ethic values.
- EEPIS building has a floor area of approximately 25.000
m2, located in a 6 ha area and it is a part of ITS campus in Surabaya. The
EEPIS buildings consist of administration offices, labs, workshops, final
project rooms, lecture and seminar rooms, libraries, a student dormitory, a
canteen. EEPIS is also supported by a large parking area & Small Mosques
In line with its target to produce skilled and knowledgeable middle
management technicians, EEPIS is fully equipped with sophisticated study
facilities, for all practice and theory purposes. The modern labs have
up-to-date equipment, like a full range of standard measuring instruments,
electronics-related trainers and demo tools, communication equipment
currently used in the industry, micro computers, over-head and video
projectors, and also data projectors.
- The institute was founded with the support and assistance
of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), who sent a team in
1985 to assess the need for aid. In 1987, construction of the institution
began. Japan also provided training for EEPIS instructors, both before and
after the opening of the school, in Indonesia and Japan. It was officially
inaugurated on June 2, 1988 by the Indonesian president Suharto.
Since its inception, the institution has held several names. When it opened,
it was the Politeknik Elektronika & Telekomunikasi. From 1992 to 1991 it was
entitled Politeknik Elektronika Surabaya, at which time it came under the
umbrella of Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember. In 1996, it was retitled to
Politeknik Elektronika Negeri Surabaya (PENS).
- EEPIS offers two degrees, Diploma III is a three-year
degree course, while Diploma IV is a four-year course. The departments that
EEPIS offers are:
Diploma III: Electronics Engineering, Telecommunications Engineering,
Electro-industrial Engineering, Informatics Engineering, Multimedia
Diploma IV: Electronics Engineering, Telecommunications Engineering,
Electro-industrial Engineering, Informatics Engineering, Mechatronics
Engineering, Computer Engineering.
Soon EEPIS will open Master Program to enhance the education system focusing
on the Applied Engineering Area.
- ER2C Motto is 24seven Innovations which mean that we
try to do with our best in delivering a non-stop innovation in
- EEPIS already joined the annual Robocon events from
1991, since it still hosted by Nippon Hōsō Kyōkai (NHK). In 2001, EEPIS Team
namely B-Cak got the first price in the competition themed "Cubic Bingo
World Championship" by beating out twenty competitors from Japan, China, New
Zealand, USA, France, and Thailand. Start from 2002 the Robocon events has
been hosted by Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU).

he Asia-Pacific Robot Contest (ABU Robocon) is an Asian Oceanian College
robot competition, founded in 2002 by Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union. In
the competition robots compete to complete a task within a set period of
time. The contest aims to create friendship among young people with similar
interests who will lead their countries in the 21st century, as well as help
advance engineering and broadcasting technologies in the region. The event
is broadcast in many countries through ABU member broadcasters.
Each year the competition has different topics, but generally speaking three
or more robots must be used to complete the tasks. The best robots usually
weight more than 10kg and span in one square meter area. To build the
robots, contestants, who are restricted to be undergraduate students, must
possess rich knowledge in programming, mechanical design and electronic

Fire Fighting Robot Contest
- In 2004 Indonesian Intelligent Robot Contest (KRCI)
has been held for the first time in order to encourage quality improvement,
especially in robotic control systems. The theme for the competition is fire
fighting robot contest which rules are accommodated from Trinity College
Fire Fighting Home Robot Contest.
The objective is to build an autonomous robot that can navigate through a
maze resembling the floor plan of a house, locate a burning candle and
extinguish the flame in the shortest time allowed.
The contest is unique because the robots must be autonomous - no joysticks,
remote controls or manual assistance.
There are two divisions in this contest, wheeled and legged robot.
EEEPIS Intelligent Legged Robot (EILERO)
- EILERO is Robotics Team in EEPIS who participate in
Indonesian Fire Fighting Robot Contest in Legged Division.
It is an animaloid robot based and hexapod type design. Most of the
actuators are using servo type motor with 3 motors in its each leg.
EILERO is able to move autonomously through the labirynth in finding the
candle position. The starting position and orientation, door location and
candle position is randomly placed. And then after put out the candle's
fire, it must return to the starting position autonomously. Started in 2012,
we moved to ARM based embedded system as the robot's main controller. We
continously develope the robot performance and stability in handling the
EEPIS Art Robot (ERISA)
- ERISA is Robotics Team in EEPIS who participate in
Indonesian Art Robot Contest.
It is a humanoid type robot which purpose is to perform Indonesian
traditional dance by following the given music background.
EEPIS Robo Soccer (EROS)
- EROS is humanoid robot wich designed to play the game
in the Humanoid League Robot Soccer. In this game, two teams are fighting to
score more goals. The number of robots in each team is 3. They can be
deployed in the game field as a ball keeper, striker or middle field player.
EROS was firstly designed in 2010. Currently we develope the third version
which implement more robust mechanical design to increase its speed and
- Designed to participate Indonesian Intelligent Robot
Contest which rules are derived from Trinity College Fire-Fighting Robot
ER2C Robotic Art
- ER2C Robot that inspired from the life creatures which is
built in the sense of art in mind.
