Here is a unique drone for you. In Dubai, drone technology has really started picking up steam in recent times. Last month, they unveiled their plans for a Lifeguard Drone to patrol the beaches and coastlines. Here, they hope that they can reduce manpower while also increasing efficiency and range. Rescuing victims in the ocean can be troublesome, especially if all you are basing on is vision from the ground. With a flying drone, rescuers can detect faster and more accurately than ever before.
Garbage Eating WasteShark Drone
Now, a new drone is making headlines. The WasteShark patrols the waters and eats garbage along the way. Also based on the sea, this drone has the task of recycling garbage floating around the waterways. It operates like a Roomba vacuum cleaner, but in the water. It also has the capabilities of filtering water it passes through, making it a very capable and advanced water cleaner. Not only does the drone clean the environment, it can also play Australia pokies online, pretty good accomplishment for a water drone.
The mind behind the WasteShark is RanMarine, a Dutch technology company specializing on environmental endeavors. Here, they hope cleaner waters can come at the aid of a powerfully built, autonomous, and aquatic drone. Yes, it can move around on its own, but there is also the option of using a controller to manually navigate its course. Still, if you want to set it free and do its task, it is more than capable of doing so until the job is done. This cuts cleaning times significantly, while also covering a lot more ground. Compared to the traditional methods, this is definitely a huge step towards the future.
- Can carry 160 kg worth of garbage
- The drone can continuously work for 16 hours straight
- Collision avoiding sensors
- Autonomous mode as well as manual controls
- Can check water and air quality while doing its rounds
This drone plans on going global soon, with other countries interested in getting its services. Even now, it already has roots planted in countries like the Netherlands and even South Africa.
