SHORVAC is an environmentally sensitive robotic vacuum cleaner that assists cleaning specialists with the task of removing unwanted debris along coastal environments. The purpose of this product is to help protect wildlife and the environment by removing items that are considered hazardous. Composed of a sifting shovel and a robotic hexapod vacuum cleaner, Shorvac improves the cleaning process of small discarded items that are difficult to access and remove with conventional beach cleaning equipment. The hexapod design of the vacuum unit makes the product mobile without disturbing the environment which facilitates and accelerates the cleanup.
