NAFRO / Robot


One of the special features of our robot is simple routine for separating the oil from water by using natural characteristics of the elements. In order to reach the highest stability in chaotic sea conditions, after considering hydrodynamic of multi direction movement structure, maximum fluid transporting, energy saving and good movement maneuver we design a spinning-toy shape robot. Around the robot’s main body we have suction ring with 4 separated segments with special sensors for sensing the contiguous fluid. Also in different circumstances of weather conditions on sea, this robot has special schemes for its movements.
