Could Marine Robots Clean Up Ocean Trash?
The Veolia Drone concept by Elie Ahovi addresses the global issue of pollution within the world's largest ecosystems.
Created in response to the world-wide issue of ocean pollution, Veolia is a concept by Elie Ahovi, an industrial design student at the French International School of Design.
There are five major oceanic gyres created by the ocean currents over the planet. In each, and most famously in the North Pacific Gyre, a particularly intense accumulation of man-made debris has been drawn in and trapped by the whirlpool movement of the waters.
The North Pacific Gyre is the worlds largest ecosystem, and the growing amount of plastics and trash is detrimental to the life within it.
