Floating Horizon - Robotic-Skimmer collecting marine litter samples, particles & data from the ocean surface

4,022 views

Published on

http://www.floatinghorizon.org _ Marine Litter is a serious and complex problem. Project Floating Horizon evaluates if and how robotic solutions could support the reduction of marine litter.
Stage 01: In a first stage in 2010 a concept idea was developed discussing if recovery of ocean litter would be desirable, viable and feasible. The results was that the use of robots could lower running costs, material invest and time significantly. But for the time being no answer could be given how the protection of sea life. In addition and based on the vague data existing it became obvious that the collection of offshore debris is still costly and not profitable (cost are at approx. 30€ per Kilogram if all runs well). Even more as value chains do not exist today.
Stage 02: But still robots are able to lower the mission costs and lower the risk to human beings acting in one of the most demanding environments on this planet. Robots designed to filter particles can help to monitor and understand the problem of marine litter as today very little data is existing to allow information based decision making.

To research and develop those technologies a team of enthusiasts have created a new incubation platform called OCP (Ocean Collaboration Platform) which provides an open organizational backbone for various projects (like Floating Horizon) dealing with the mission to develop marine protection supporting technologies in an open innovation kind of way.

This peecha kucha presentation was given at the plastics fair in Düsseldorf, Germany 2013.

Most of the options shown are concepts and not commercially used.

This project is a private project.
