With incorrect disposal of plastics and other materials, the ocean has quickly become a place of pollution. Over time, trash accumulates onto beaches, which affect both wildlife and people. Cleaning up our beaches is often a costly and timely process, which this project attempts to help with. The goal of the beach clean-up rover project at UCI is to design, build, and test an autonomous rover that can route along the beach and passively sift through sand to collect trash. During operation, the rover will collect and store any trash for later disposal.
