Project Start 'MtecPla'

In the research project ‘MtecPla’, planblue, together with the University of Stuttgart, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and Kurt Synowzik Werkzeug u. Maschinenbau (KSW), is advancing its technology further and taking marine litter monitoring to the next level. The aim is to develop a monitoring technology to automatically detect and visualize plastic waste on the seafloor. The partners will develop a detection software, a new hardware housing and mission planning techniques to best analyze marine litter. The technology will be tested and reiterated in laboratory, as well as lake tests with different types and sizes of plastic debris.
