Oystamaran: This Robot Can Flip Heavy Bags of Oysters

Robotic Gizmos

Here is a robot designed to work with oyster farmers to flip heavy floating bags of oysters to help the shellfish grow and stay healthy. This process “allows “algae, barnacles, and other “biofouling” organisms” on the other side of the bag to be exposed to air and light. The Oystamaran simply has a flipping mechanism between its 2 hulls.

This robot has a vision system with a forward looking part to determine the positioning and a downward part to find the baskets.
