Three Rivers Waterkeeper Partners with Platypus, LLC to Expand Monitoring and Enforcement Capabilities

Three Rivers Waterkeeper is partnering with Platypus, LLC, formed by a team of CMU Robotics Institute researchers, to bring another tool to the citizen clean water watchdog. Platypus was formed to commercialize the use of small, low cost autonomous boats that are powered remotely through Android phones.  The boats include sensors to measure water properties and respond to cues of contamination or danger.
