CLIFF RANGER / Trash Collecting Drone

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2018

The development of tourism is usually accompanied by damage to the environment. A lot of plastic rubbish is left on the mountain, greatly harming the environment, and steep cliffs make it hard and dangerous clean.

That is what the CLIFF RANGER is made for. With its agile mechanical claw system and the NIR plastic detecting system, the CLIFF RANGER can free the manual cleaner from risking lives.

Left over trash at high altitudes is a growing problem. This is a well-presented concept to deal with that problem.
Jury-Statement
We are so delighted to receive this good news. It is surely a great excitation to us, and a great motivation for us as well. We will work hard in our future design career.
