Abstract

Beaches across the globe are being polluted by human trash. While there are solutions to remove pollution from beaches, they mostly entail large machines that are not environmentally friendly and require a human operator. The goal of this MQP is to develop a robotic solution to clean these beaches effectively. This project aims to develop building blocks for later MQPs including the development of one small robot, a base station with a beach mapping system, and the communication methods between them.
