A robotics team from the Computer University (Unikom) in Bandung, West Java, was named on Sunday the best team in the RoboWaiter category during the 19th Trinity College Robot Contest at Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut, in the United States.

Team leader Yusrilla Kerlooza told The Jakarta Post that the team won two first places and two second places in the international competition. "Thank God," Yusrila said in a text message sent to the Post from the US just after the competition on Saturday local time.

The same team won the first place in the advanced class and the first and second places in the standard class in the same category last year.
