Lecture Description

90% of trade is carried by sea, but the vast majority of cargo ships in use today run on the dirtiest fuel available. CargoKite addresses this problem with an innovative, patent-pending, autonomous micro cargo ship powered solely by wind energy. Robotics and automation is at the core of this 21st century version of a sailing ship. At Automatica, you will get to experience a small-scale model of the ship.
