Ocean Protector / Maritime Drones

Ocean Protector

This is a maritime drone that can automatically search for trash on the ocean. Marine debris, especially discarded fishing nets, is a global problem. The drone can effectively locate the "ghost fishing nets" on the surface of the sea through the AI visual recognition system, and plan the route for special cleaning vessels to clean the marine environment efficiently.
