While we are progressing with the science and technology involved in cleaning up the litter from the seafloor, we took the chance to popularize the ideas behind the SEACLEAR project through participation in several trade and science fairs this summer. Here is a short overview of where was SEACLEAR featured:
This event took place in Munich from 21st to 24th of June 2022, and SEACLEAR had to be there. We arranged for an exhibition of the Tortuga collection robot, equipped with the gripper developed by TUM. The visitors could ask questions about the system, and they could see live how does the algorithm detect litter and distinguishes it from lifeforms.
Our partners from Subsea Tech, responsible for the beloved SEACLEAR robots, recently celebrated Open Day 2022! On 17th of June, they opened the doors of the company to the public, and they engaged with all the curious people that wanted to know more about what the company does.
What is our underwater robot doing at The Design Museum? SEACLEAR is part of an exhibition that marks the 20th anniversary of the Pinakothek der Moderne. Representative of each year is an object that addresses a development that has changed design or serves as the basis for current design movements. The exhibition is going to run until 15th January 2023, so if you happen to be in Munich until then, come visit us!
Our partners from Fraunhofer CML was present at one of the largest maritime fairs — SMM Hamburg. For nearly 60 years SMM has been a magnet for shipowners, suppliers, shipyards, and industry visitors from all around the world.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 871295.
The SEACLEAR project spans four years, running from January 1st, 2020 to December 31st, 2023.
