The technology described herein is a smart robotic autonomous platform and water sampler, with the ability to operate with minimal manual support. The platform constantly monitors the water quality of the entire water body as it propels around, increasing the efficiency of water sampling while reducing the costs involved. It utilises a cloud-based network to feed the data collected in real-time to the User for analysis, as well as incorporating various intelligent mission planning algorithms which then decides the next best route it should take to collect the necessary data. The platform aims to ensure that this important resource - water - remains optimal and safe to use, drink and enjoy, while reducing the carbon footprint to the environment.
This technology is applicable in the following industries:
