Description

At Robot Missions, we are harnessing the power of robots to clean our shorelines.


During the interactive Field Test, you will operate the robot, and help set up tasks to measure advanced features. Sub-groups will note observations and monitor the robot. Watch this video to see a Field Test in action!

Our Field Test is a look at the future the roles robots will play in addressing the challenge of the harm to our environment done by increasing amounts of pollution on shorelines.


Open for all ages — if you are passionate about the environment and robotics, join us! You do not need any prior robot experience. This is a great introduction, combining STEM education and the environment in a hands-on way.


Tiny trash debris on shoreline


Field Tests are an experiment! We're taking a look at the future of environmental stewardship by inventing new tools. There are times when the robot might not work perfectly, and other times where we observe interesting emergent features. Through this is how we learn.


Location: Sunnyside Beach by the Humber River (43.632784, -79.469379)

Map of the location

Goals for this Field Test include:

• Beach is cleaner (both robot and manual efforts)

• Straight-line collect mode - robot can scoop debris 10 times in a row; stops when it detects marker

• Measure two areas at the beach to count the tiny-trash shoreline debris in one area

• Getting @David_67's replicated robot rolling

• Using @rglenn's new operator controller


We'll be taking photos and videos during the event for our social media and making a YouTube video. If you do not want to be included, please inform Erin prior to / at the event.
