Robotic solutions to tackle humanity’s toughest environmental problems

Estimates for how long plastic endures range from 450 years to forever.

Manual plastic collection is a linear solution to an exponential problem.


Our Solution

F.L.O.A.T.I.B.O.I.

Floating Long-term Oceanic Autonomous Trawler Incorporating Buoyant Object Identification

F.L.O.A.T.I.B.O.I is a nearshore autonomous trash collecting robot.

It incorporates an intelligent material identification system that will allow it to actively search and identify plastic debris. It then captures and stores the plastic it identifies. Ultimately, the garbage will be collected at docking stations and recycled and/or up-cycled by local waste management services.
