On the 4th of May 2012 our theoretical simulations were proven to be correct by Raphael Domjan and his boat Planetsolar, thanks to generous sponsorship by Candido Swiss watches and Immosolar, leaders in the field of solar energy management.

 

We live in a century of rapid technological advancement, where almost anything is possible. Our mission is to take robotics to sea to make the oceans a safer place for humans and to help reduce reliance on diesel fuels - especially for marine cargo transport.
