Water is essential to life, yet water pollution is one of the most serious environmental threats that we face today. Our lakes and river are increasingly getting polluted. Reversing the effect of water pollution is very difficult and can take years to remove all the harmful substances from the water. Also, huge manpower and budget would be required for the same. The innovative system that we propose offers a unique and automated way to tackle water pollution by eliminating manual labour thus increasing efficiency and decreasing the cost and time needed. The main aim of this floating waste collector project is to clean the waste that gets accumulated on the surface of water bodies thus keeping the water clean hence decreasing pollution. This project being remote-operated is controlled by an RC remote using which it can be maneuverer accordingly, we use DC pumps to provide the direction control and servo motor arrangement for the steering. To make the boat self-sustainable we have implemented two Solar panels which would charge the battery. Wire gauge net is used for garbage collection.
