Bali State Polytechnic Robot Competition (PNBRC) 2022 is an event that is routinely held annually by the Bali State Polytechnic Robotics Student Activity Unit. This year’s PNBRC event carries the theme “Improving The Skill And Innovation In Technology For Preparing Society 5.0”. PNBRC 2022 involves SMA/SMK equivalent and Universities throughout Indonesia to deal with the rapid movement of the Industrial Revolution 4.0, which has now entered the Era of Society 5.0. Because of this technological development, Indonesia must be able to adapt and develop Indonesian technology in order to be able to compete, moreover, many people have created various kinds of innovations in the field of robotics.
