Ocean Garbage Cleanup Drone / New application of drone

Ocean Garbage Cleanup Drone
Ocean Garbage Cleanup Drone

This product is designed to clean up the garbage of the ocean with drones by improving its basic structure. Conventional cleanup methods including using vessels and nets are not efficient and can take decades, but in the other side, ocean garbage is accumulating in a rapid speed every year, and it has reached more than 3 million square kilometers for the Pacific Ocean alone, which is even larger than India. This product provides a new idea to solve this problem, in order to protect the marine ecosystem.
