REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, DENPASAR -- Several members of Sekeha Teruna (Youth Group) "Dharma Laksana," who are residents of Banjar Kaja Panjer in Denpasar, Bali, made an Ogoh-ogoh that can be controlled through an internet connection. The Ogoh-ogoh can be managed online using the "Google Assistant" feature in a smartphone in order to celebrate Seclusion Day in Bali, system designer Made Dwi Krisna stated here on Thursday.

Krisna noted that the Ogoh-ogoh, named Shiva Sarabha, was able to receive voice commands sent by Ogoh-ogoh operators using the "Google Assistant" feature of a smartphone. The Ogoh-ogoh translates the command into movements.

"I assembled the components of Ogoh-ogoh, such as wireless modem message receivers and processors, ethernet shields, relays, arduino, and dimmers in about two weeks," he remarked.

Krishna explained how the Ogoh-ogoh worked, with it first being connected to a smartphone using an internet connection. Thereafter, the sound is processed by components inside the Ogoh-ogoh, and it can then move according to the command.

A hydraulic tool and "drone" propeller are used to operate the Ogoh-ogoh.

However, this innovation is only for creativity and will not be included in the competition.

"We have won the Ogoh-ogoh competition two years in a row, so this is just to prove our capability in making Ogoh-ogoh," he revealed.

"Sekeha Teruna" Dharma Laksana had earlier conducted routine innovations in the making of Ogoh-ogoh using technology every Seclusion Day.

"Two years ago, we had made an Ogoh-ogoh driven by a 'bluetooth' connection. Our Ogoh-ogoh was able to move with a sound frequency sensor last year. Now, we innovate to move it by using an internet connection," he stated.
