In 2021 the MAELSTROM project received funding from the H2020 research program of the European Union to produce an innovative technology for marine litter removal.
MAELSTROM created a robotic seabed cleaning platform, the system consists of a movable floating platform, a cable robot, a set of sensors, a drudge and a gripper. Based on the latest robotics and AI advancements, it allows to reach the seabed of lagoons and coastal areas to remove #marinelitter specifically macro #plastics.
Tested in Venice in September 2022, the Robotic Seabed Cleaning Platform will be presented during summer 2023 in dedicated events. In the meantime, see and hear the people and the voices behind the incredible work of designing and producing practical and #sustainable solutions to face societal challenges such as marine litter.
