We have covered different types of Drones that is used for different purposes. But till now, we haven’t covered any news or concept of such drone that destroys pollution. Today, we’re going to cover such one. Elie Ahovi and his team have come up with the Marine Drone concept. Marine Drone is such a drone that is designed to capture underwater or oceanic pollution.

The garbage under water doesn’t go anywhere. Rather it slowly decomposes and contaminates our oceans. France-based industrial design student Elie Ahovi and his classmates from the French International School of Design decided to come up with a new drone concept called Marine Drone. Marine Drone is designed to operate underwater.

In Marine Drone, there is an electric motor through which the garbage hunter moves silently in the water. The garbage hunter will patrol the oceans autonomously. Rather in search for enemy targets, it’ll search for waterborne garbage. As soon as it finds any garbage like plastic bottles or waterborne garbage, it will devour that. To ensure only trash goes in, there is a sonic emitter that sends out an irritating signal to deter aquatic life. When the hunter’s stomach becomes full, a nearby mothership will pick up the drone from under water and collect the garbage and destroy the collected garbage.

The Marine Drone has 6 ballasts, integrated handles, water-proof batteries, electric motor and many more things for which it could be a perfect underwater garbage hunter in future.
