SeaClear project develops the first autonomous robots for underwater litter collection

News - 23 March 2021 - Webredactie 3mE

Today's oceans contain 26-66 million tons of waste, with approximately 94% located on the seafloor. So far, collection efforts have focused mostly on surface waste, with only a few local efforts to gather underwater waste, always using human divers. No solution exists that exploits autonomous robots for underwater litter collection; the SeaClear project will develop the first. Check this animation to explore how are we planning to achieve this ambitious goal!
