SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

Water Waste Collection Drone

post-image

I'm planning to create a drone that goes across water bodies and collects waste. It's going to use a conveyor belt mechanism that will remove the waste from the body and store it safely in a compartment. I've chosen a 'catamaran' boat design that will provide adequate floating. 

I'm thinking of Modifying an existing drone and attaching that motor to my device. 

I also need some advice on materials. I'm currently thinking of using fibreglass to create the body of the drone. 

Any ideas on how I'm going to improve this will be appreciated. 

What do you think?

What a clever idea!  The following organisations have provided support and retweeted your major design project.  I suggest reaching out to further develop your idea:

  • Additive Manufacturing Australia
  • Manufacturing Industry 4
  • Innovative Manufacturing
  • Manufacturing Today
  • The Journal Australia

This reminds me of a similar drone,

Would probably be a good idea to check it out for some more ideas, but a great idea still!

Well spotted Deyan. The drone you mention was posted on IdeaSpies. The catamaran design may be a design improvement.  https://www.ideaspies.com/posts/an-aquatic-vacuum-cleaner
