Akabotics provides autonomous robotic solutions for continuous maintenance dredging of waterways.
Akabotics is the producer of the Microdredger system. The Microdredger is a robotic system that will perform routine maintenance dredging on waterways much more efficiently than current systems. It has been called “the Roomba of the waterways”, after the popular autonomous vacuum cleaner robot. The Microdredger is comprised of two separate robotic platforms that work together to remove sediment buildup in waterways. The system is relatively compact in size (approximately 10 feet long) and can operate autonomously, allowing for extended use and maneuverability in smaller, harder to clean waterways that are historically difficult to dredge. This could allow for constant dredging maintenance reducing the risk of flooding damage and expensive deferred maintenance work.
