Marine nurse / drone

Marine nurse

Nowadays, marine garbage is becoming an increasingly serious problem. These wastes have long been floating and accumulated in the sea, seriously threatening the marine ecology and affect the navigation of ships. Therefore, the task of cleaning up marine garbage is already imminent. However, the removal of marine garbage is not as easy as that on land, which is dangerous and requires a lot of time and effort. “Marine Nurse“, a drone designed for marine garbage removal, applies two salvage methods that improve the current situation of manual cleaning, which is conducive to marine environmental protection for more safe and efficient effects.
