Marine Drone - Underwater Vehicle that Seeks Out and Collects Ocean Garbage


This concept underwater drone was designed to help tackle ocean garbage. Mainly the goal of the drone is to seek out and gather garbage such as plastic bottles from the ocean environment.

Dubbed Marine Drone, the device would autonomously travel across the ocean, being powered by special waterproof batteries and a silent electric motor that will not scare the marine life.

Once the Marine Drone become full of trash, it travels to a special floating dock, where a group of people would pick up the garbage for later wise disposal.

The idea to create the Marine Drone concept came to Elie Ahovi and his team at the French International School of Design.
