Nissa and the team chose the Environment competition with work named “U-trush: Automatic Waste Disposal Machine for Household Based on Internet of Things to Increase the Selling Value of Waste”.
“Environment topic will be easier for us to analyze the problem. The solution we offer is very unique that collaborates IoT, economics, and the environment. We make a kind of IoT integration between application and machine, the final result of our work is a waste prototype design,” Nissa said about the reasons why she chose that title work.
Congratulations to Nissa and the team who have represented Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia in the international competition and won the silver medal. Hopefully, it can be motivation, especially for Computer Science Education Department’s students to reach an achievement.
