Accelerating Accident Handling, Engineering Student Wins Turkey International Competition

ACTOR Team has made another achievement at the international level. This time, six students of Electrical Engineering (TE) and Informatics Engineering UB managed to get a Gold Medal and Grand Prize in the Innovation category at 1 Idea 1 World 1|1W – International Innovation, Design, and Startup Competition.

This international competition is being held by the Turkish Inventors Association (TUMMIAD) on 23-28 February 2021, and the winners are announced online on 7 March 2021.

This team won the award with their work, ACTOR (ACcident DetecTOR). This work can speed up the handling time of traffic accident victims.

“We think ACTOR can bring a big impact on society, and this has brought us to the best position in the field of innovation in this competition,” said Dary Rafi Brafianto (TE’18) as Team Leader.

Led by Dary, the team consists of Ajeng Kusuma Dewi (TE’19), Anak Agung Sagung Gede Paramitha Wardhana (TE’19), Alfathan Dandy Pradana (TE’18), Vira Zafarin (TE’18), and Ersya Nadia Candra (Engineering Informatics ’18) and supervised by Eka Maulana, ST, MT, M.Eng.

Previously, the ACTOR Team also won a Gold Medal and Favorite Champion on the last Indonesia Inventors Day 2020.

ACTOR itself consists of hardware in the form of a CCTV camera integrated with Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things to detect traffic accidents and then send them to the application in real-time.

ACTOR allows the nearest hospital and police to receive accident location information and direct it to the location with the fastest and closest route.

Thus, police and medical personnel can deal with traffic accidents more quickly. (mic)
