    ITS’ Anargya Team Ready to Compete in FSAE Japan 2024

    The Anargya team from Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) is gearing up for the next Formula SAE Japan 2024, where they will compete once more. As part of the preparations, the team is actively working on developing an electric formula car and seeking help from Indonesia’s President, Mr. Joko Widodo. Rafi Ahmad Fadilah, the Non-technical Manager of the Anargya team, highlighted the significance of FSAEJ as a global competition for students creating electric formula cars. The event is scheduled to take place on September 9, 2024 at Aichi Sky Expo in Japan. To ensure their readiness for the competition, both technical and non-technical aspects are being thoroughly addressed.

    This year marks the third participation of the Anargya ITS team in FSAEJ, and according to Rafi Ahmad Fadilah, their technical preparations encompass three main stages: design, manufacturing, and testing. The design phase commenced in October 2023, followed by ongoing manufacturing, with a particular focus on mechanical aspects this year. Ahmad, a student of the Department of Materials and Metallurgy Engineering, emphasized that alongside technical efforts, the team is also engaging in non-technical initiatives such as building collaborations with various stakeholders. These partnerships have provided the team with support and opportunities to showcase their innovation, Anargya EV Mark 3.0, at the 2024 Periklindo Electric Vehicle Show (PEVS) in Jakarta.

    During the PEVS, the Anargya team met President Joko Widodo, who expressed strong support for their endeavors in electric vehicle technology. This encouragement from the President, along with backing from various stakeholders, has motivated the team to strive for excellence in FSAEJ 2024. Ahmad hopes that their preparations will lead to a successful performance in the competition, aiming for optimal car performance and the ability to compete effectively in the Dynamic Event. He concluded with optimism, hoping that their efforts would yield significant achievements.
