Through the DRONIC project, the consortium will showcase a new, innovative blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) monitoring and treatment robotic system, that can localize hotpots of blue-green algae blooms and only treats the part of the lake which is experiencing blue-green algae bloom. Because of the direct and localized treatment, the system is environmentally friendly, with a minimal impact on the ecology of the lake. The new water robot concerns the retrieval, prevention and abatement of harmful algae.
