2 mahasiswa Prodi Ti yaitu 2 Orang Mahasiswa Prodi TI Satria Rahmadi dan Ghiyats Hanif Iskandar mengikuti ajang Fishackathon yaitu acara marathon “coding”, dimana para peserta dituntut melakukan coding ditempat selama seharian penuh. Fishackathon Indonesia diadakan pada tanggal 5-7 juni 2015 di Gedung Graha XL Axiata. Dimulai dengan briefing dan brainstorming pada hari pertama dan kedua. Setalah fishackathon local selesai dan pemenang di tentukan, para pemenang fishackathon local di berbagai negara akan bertanding kembali di final Fishackathon global pada tanggal 20 juni 2015. Pemenang final Fishackathon akan mewakili negaranya untuk ikut serta dalam acara Mobile Congress World (MWC) 2016.

Berikut adalah deskripsi kegiatan dan dokumen selama perlombaan berlangsung.



Sea turtles demonstrate the ultimate lesson of ecology – that everything is connected. Sea turtles are part of two vital ecosystems, beaches and marine systems. If sea turtles become extinct, both the marine and beach ecosystems will weaken. And since humans use the ocean as an important source for food and use beaches for many kinds of activities, weakness in these ecosystems would have harmful effects on humans.

Though sea turtles have been living and thriving in the world’s oceans for 150 million years, they are now in danger of extinction largely because of changes brought about by humans. If we alter the oceans and beaches enough to wipe out sea turtles, will those changes make it difficult for us to survive? And if we choose to do what’s necessary to save sea turtles, might we save our own future?

one of the threats for sea turtles is egg poaching, During the nesting season, hunters comb the beaches at night looking for nesting females. Often, they will wait until the female has deposited her eggs to kill her. Then, they take both the eggs and meat. unfortunately the number of egg poaching are increasing every year, in Sangalaki, a small Island in Indonesia, this case increased by 120% compared to 2013. a local intitute, Yayasan Penyu Laut Indonesia (YPLI) said that almost 1200 egg are stolen by poacher per month in Pasemut Island during a nesting season.

Sea turtles have played vital roles in maintaining the health of the world’s oceans for more than 150 million years. These roles range from maintaining productive coral reef ecosystems to transporting essential nutrients from the oceans to beaches and coastal dunes.this case successfully made our heart sink, so we hope this little tools we made can help out to ensuring sustainability of sea turtles live. It is the right time for us to protect sea turtles and rebuild their populations to healthy levels as a vital step in ensuring healthy and resilient oceans for the future.

How it works

This Penyu (turtle) Ranger Project consist of the tool, and an android app. we called the tool as “Penyusuar” made of Raspberry pi, a proper web cam and PIR sensor. this tool built to help turtle conserver protect eggs from poacher, it can detect if there’s threats around the nest of turtle’s egg. we divided the threats into three condition, condition one, if there’s predator(animal) around the nest Penyusuar will play a dog-barking sound to drive away the predator. condition two, if there’s human around the nest our tool will define them as a threat or non-threat, if they’re considered as a non-threat our tool will only detect their faces and upload it to our dropbox. and condition three if Penyusuar define the human as a real threat, if they approaching the nest and stay there for a certain distance and amount of time our tool will inform the ranger (a name we gave to turtle conserver) via SMS so the ranger can make sure if there’s a real threat and take care of it. the android app will help ranger in order to manage the Penyusuar (located in each turtle nest) it will record the data of the tool installment including coordinate of the nest and Penyusuar location, date of installment, number of eggs on the nest and the species of the turtle. this app will also give a reminder to the ranger on the 50th day since the installment that the egg is about to Hatch, so Ranger can move the eggs to the conservatory and perform a semi-natural hatching.

Accomplishments that I’m proud of

  • We can work in pressure, and also in team
  • We can contribute to save turtle from extinction

What I learned

We learned that in order to save sea ecosystem, we cant miss a single part of it. Sea turtles have played vital roles in maintaining the health of the world’s oceans for more than 150 million years, but now they are in danger of extinction. We need to help them, that’s what we need to in order to ensuring a healthy and resilient oceans for another million years.

What’s next for Penyu Ranger

Apply this system in real-life.

Goal & Aim

  • how to help Turtle Conserver against Egg Poaching

how to develop a system that can save turtle from extinction.
