Our Solution

A clever trash worker

Human assistance

Engage with the public on the beach


We present a swarm of robots that jointly search for litter. BeachBot (.BB) and MAPP are designed for outdoor work, such as on beaches and in parks. They are programmed with artificial intelligence to efficiently map and collect litter.

By using our game app, anyone with a smartphone can contribute to make the robots smarter.

Highlights

MAPP DETECTION ROBOTS

July 15th 2021

Meet our newest Project.BB family member: MAPP. The MAPP detection robots are designed to operate in outdoor areas, like beaches and parks. They are programmed with artificial intelligence (AI) to efficiently map and collect litter data. Our MAPP-robots can communicate with each other to collaboratively hunt for litter. Soon you will be able to meet MAPP in real life!

Test drive on the beach

July 11 2020

BB's first performance on the beach (Beachclub Down Under Beach, Zwarte Pad Scheveningen). It was great to take the robot for a spin and get feedback from beachgoers. We will be out there for another test in August and a demo in September.

small litter, big challenge

Small litter that roams around on the beach effects the health of sea water, species and eventually our food chain.

Did you know that one cigarette filter can poison hundreds liters of water? Filters won't tear down and breakdown into microplastics.

Experience the amount of litter

Augmented Reality shows the amount of litter collected on one day
