Robots Helping Nature
FIELD TEST! July 6th – more details
We are makers and environmentalists collaborating to improve our environment through community driven missions.
Working at the intersection of technology and nature, applying ways for both fields to help each other reach further.
Together, we embark on audacious pursuits and missions that challenge us to deploy, test, iterate our tech in the field.
Deploy the robot. Accomplish the tasks. Analyse and share the results.
Mission tasks are set by humanitarians, deciding on ways to help improve the environment at the specific location.
This will involve working together with the humanitarians to formulate an understanding of the natural ecosystem in order to develop the necessary capabilities of the robot.
Mission #1 Launching in Spring 2016:
Clearing debris from shoreline and monitoring the local environment
Field tests and design iterations are currently underway. Learn More
We encourage all robots to participate in a “leave no trace” policy when going into the field
Join our community on Facebook — start a discussion about how you can help the project!
The robot platform will allow robot makers to apply their skills to building robots to clear shoreline debris.
It is currently in the prototyping phase and will become an open source kit for robot makers. Learn More
