Ocean Doctor / drone

Ocean Doctor

This design is mainly designed for ocean acidification. Ocean acidification leads to a variety of marine organisms and even ecosystems facing great threats, and we plan to address this problem through drone technology. The drone we designed can sail at sea, to detect whether there exists acidification through the bottom detection device, and then place caustic soda into the polluted sea area for improvement. Such drones are powered by solar power and can automatically fly back to the supply station to supplement caustic soda.
