Brea-Ocean / Diver Propulsion Vehicle


Abandoned fishing nets damage eco-environment seriously when they are floating in the ocean. This behavior is called “Ghost fishing”. Some divers clean up and salvage the nets under the sea, but the remaining amount of nets is still huge that it can put divers in danger and costs a great deal of time. Thus, by considering the problems from the process, Brea-Ocean, a devise combining Propeller, Nets Collection Device, and Artificial Intelligence (AI), is designed. This device can help divers move faster and clean up the nets more efficiency under the sea. By helping humans reduce those ocean wastes, Brea-Ocean can make our ocean breath again.
