Pacific Garbage Patch

Cleaning our oceans!


About our project

After the testing the solar panel, we received 16.8 volts which is sufficient to charge the battery.
3D printed mechanism contains two gear sets and a shaft to faciliate the rotation of the grabber.
Arduino based camera system allows us to take pictures every minute.
The RC boat includes support structures to hold the platform on top.
