Document marine litter using underwater drones
Scientists biggest challenge is getting access to the data they need on the conditions of the sea. Using a BluEye Robotics underwater drone, you can gather knowledge about the ocean and pollution levels. This can include mapping of marine litter or inspections of a particular area to cover potential changes over a period of time.
Plastic is sinking. Scientists have counted 1.9 million plastic pieces per square metre on the ocean floor.Source
- You can monitor the marine environment without disturbing it
- Makes it easier to collect and share data
- Can reach places that its not easy or practical for humans to go
- Information collected can be inputed into your own or larger global studies
- Time in the water may be limited by drone battery
- Expensive initial purchase price
Making a difference
With an underwater drone, their researchers are able to dive down to 150 m and reach areas where humans can’t, contributing to valuable research.
