MindoroBots is a research project which aims to map Coral Reefs around the island of Mindoro, Philippines using a Swarm of Oceanographic Robots. Funded by GHELC, we shall work with experts from Scoutbots and Ecotone Resilience to build and test these robots in Hong Kong from September to December 2017.

I, along with Mr. Sidhant Gupta, under the guidance of Dr. K.S Lui and Mr. Cesar Harada, initiated the MindoRobots project.

In January 2018, using the massive amount of data that we generate in Mindoro, we will work with environmentalists and researchers to determine a safe coral protection baseline, which will serve as a guideline to the government when designating tourist areas in Mindoro.

Further, this data that we generate as well as the robots would be made open source, and shall go a long way in initiating, supporting and growing similar projects across the world for negligible cost.
