Clear Blue Sea Internship

Embedded Systems Engineer

During the summer of 2019, I was given the opportunity to intern at Clear Blue Sea and to enhance mini FRED, a floating robot for eliminating debris. FRED is designed to eliminate plastic pollution from the oceans. FRED runs off solar power and is semi-autonomous. Our team was responsible for enhancing FRED's debris collection subsystem, data collection subsystem, and telemetry range.The team and I successfully added leak sensors, a temperature sensor, and a camera to transmit live video feed. We were also able to increase the telemetry range by adding a drone antenna that communicated up to 20 miles.
