BrainBotics has got their hands on a Jellyfishbot which is a small robot designed to collect floating waste and oil spills. This bot is an efficient and flexible solution to water decontamination of more or less widespread and sheltered areas: ports, marinas, lakes, canals, but also leisure centers, hotel residences and industrial facilities.
– Dimensions: L 70 cm, l 70 cm, h 50 cm
– Weight: approx. 20 kg
– Working time: between 4 to 6 hours
– Remote control range: >1 km
– Maximum speed: 2 knots
– Surface: approx. 1000 m²/h (average speed: 1 knot)
– Packaging dim. : 76 x 76 x 60 cm / 35
The 80 L net is made of strong mesh fabric (1 mm mesh). Made to measure, it collects floating waste of small dimensions with 10 to 15 cm deep and has a very long lifespan. The net is attached to a removable frame allowing an easy net recovery: there is no need to take the robot out of the water. The net allows to drain the waste during its recovery.
So far the robot has been test in Skive Fjord, were we have collected samples of sea lettuce.
