The WasteShark is an aquadrone that removes plastics and other floating debris from the water surface. It was designed especially for use in ports and harbors. Shaped like a catamaran, WasteShark can collect up to 350 kg of trash at a time. The electrically propelled drone produces zero carbon emissions and is compact and agile. RanMarine Technology developed the design and prototype through a start-up accelerator program for port innovators in Rotterdam.
The algorithms supplied by DFKI will enable the drone to find it’s way back from the harbor basin to a docking station, where it can deposit the collected trash and re-charge it’s batteries.

Lockheed Martin and General Motors are developing the next generation of lunar rovers for NASA's Artemis mission.
Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) are poised to revolutionize human transportation by making it more safe, comfortable, and reliable. From passenger travel to cargo transportation, AVs equipped with AI and sensors offer tremendous potential. As technology continues to advance, the remarkable impact of AVs in human lives is becoming increasingly evident.
This research predicts the adaptive cruise control set speed profile in the user-defined range for the future time steps, optimizing the engine operating point (EOP) in real-time. The prediction of EOP was made by a deep learning model using all the parameters affecting the engine performance.
