Carlton J. Kell High School InvenTeam
Remotely-operated oil removal watercraft
We will invent a remotely operated vehicle for the purpose of skimming oil in shallow water. A conveyor system will be attached at the front of the chassis for use in oil collection. The conveyor will transfer the oil into a containment unit on the chassis. A tread system will be used to conquer minor hazards found in shallow waters and a GPS and camera will aid in navigation. Solar panels on top of the craft will allow for a longer period of use. The craft will be light enough to be carried by 6 people yet sturdy enough to be deployed by large ship equipment.
