TrashCam - UAV´s for marine litter mapping
Purpose and goal
The aims of the project is to increase knowledge about marine litter and enable mapping of longer coastlines for litter on beaches. The goal of the project is to develop a cost-effective monitoring method for marine litter with a specially modified drone for beaches in the Baltic Sea.
Expected results and effects
The project likes to develop and test a droner based and AI-supported methodology to monitor beach litter in the Baltic Sea.
Planned approach and implementation
Work Package 1. Mapping of marine litter on a number of Baltic Sea beaches with droners and comparing results with manual traditional monitoring. Work Package 2. Test auto identification of litter items in a test bench as well as on pilot beaches.
