IWRobotX specializes in the development of autonomous sea cleaning, pollution monitoring, and research vessels, with the flagship vessel named Doris.

Doris is the world's first sea cleaning vessel with an autonomy level of 5. Leveraging cameras and autonomous radar/LIDAR sensors, Doris detects and reports waste on the sea surface.

The vessel, operating at Autonomous Level-5, collects waste data, transfers it to the internet, and can be remotely operated in real-time through cloud-based software. Doris operates autonomously for up to 36 hours, with the capability of traveling at 20 miles/hour. The vessel's carbon emissions are significantly lower than traditional methods, making it an eco-friendly solution.

Our vision at Doris is to lead the way in sustainable marine cleaning technology, revolutionizing coastal management practices globally to ensure cleaner oceans, thriving ecosystems, and healthier communities.

This component uses Transforms (Move Down 100%) to hide and show modal (on Tablet) so that filters apply once the user hits the apply button (optimal UX). Using the display: hidden will prevent the apply button from working.

To show and hide the modal for editing purposes on Tablet:
  • Select the filters1_filters-wrapper inside the parent div filters1_layout div.
  • Hit the Hide button and it will show (yes this is counterintuitive).
