The Jellyfishbot is a robot that collects floating waste and hydrocarbons on the surface of waterbodies.
The initiative aims to propose a robot solution to facilitate the protection of the marine environment from pollution resulting mainly from human activity near water bodies. Most of these pollutants are plastics (bottles, bags, packaging, cotton stems ...) but also glass (bottles), metal (cans, boxes) as well as releases of oil (iridescence on the surface of the water). The existing solutions against these daily pollutions are either inefficient or too expensive to implement daily; some are even harmful to the environment (for example the toxicity of dispersants for oils). The Jellyfishbot is the solution proposed by IADYS to address these issues: a small remote-controlled robot (20 kg) to recover surface pollution and able to sneak into the nooks and crannies where the waste is concentrated. Low cost and with 4 to 6 hours autonomy, it allows the cleaning of 1000 m2 / hour at the average speed of 1 knot. The current projet aims at developping the autonomous version, capable of evolving in a fleet in order to clean coastal or river water bodies more regularly and efficiently and thus prevent pollution from dispersing at sea.
