Containment Boom / robot

Containment Boom
Containment Boom

When marine oil spills took place, humans have to spend a lot of money cleaning up traces of oil. What’s more, marine oil spills will bring tremendous damage to the ecological environment. Containment Boom is a robot which can prevent the spread of oil rapidly after the accident. The robots will surround the oil in the area, so that cleaners can suck out the oil directly.

Containment Boom can be deployed from a helicopter or boat and accomplish its mission through the multi-robot control algorithms.
