Solar-powered robot keeps Puglia’s beaches clean

Puglia’s creative juices are flowing again. A company created by young engineers in Lecce has developed “Solarino,” described as the world’s first solar-powered robot designed to keep beaches clean. The “quiet and environmentally friendly” robot replaces loud motorized machines that could only be used at dawn and dusk.
“The hope is that Italian shore communities understand the importance of Solarino and decide to adopt it for the cleaning of the beaches,” Mauro Della Valle, president of FederBalneari Salento, told La Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno.

The website TR says the robot is manufactured by DronyX Srl of San Cassiano in Lecce. The radio-controlled robot operates solar batteries and can maneuver on both wet and dry sand.
