Algae in Watson Lake present a risk to the wildlife and has a negative impact on recreational activities. Clumps of algae floating on the surface present problems to boats out on the lake. Algae clogs up motors and makes fishing a pain. NARWHAL Robotics decided to take on the challenge of removing the dead algae on the lake. “Navigating Autonomous Robot, which Handles Aquatic Litter” (NARWHAL) is an idea for a robot that would be able to skim Watson Lake in Prescott, Arizona and collect and dispose of dead algae or trash floating on the surface.
