Here are a few use cases for this project:

  1. Ocean Cleanup Initiatives: Marine groups, environmental bodies, and ocean cleanup organizations could use this model to identify and locate floating marine litter in large bodies of water, accelerating cleanup efforts and monitoring ocean pollution levels over time.

  2. Automatic Waste Collection Systems: This model can be used to develop autonomous marine drones or robots that can identify and collect specific types of litter in water bodies, greatly aiding in marine conservation attempts.

  3. Marine Animal Conservation: Organizations working for the protection of marine life could use the model to monitor areas highly affected by plastic pollution. This would help in assessing potential threats to marine animals and aid in taking necessary actions to protect these species.

  4. Educational and Awareness Programs: The model can be used in environmental education and awareness campaigns to show changing pollution trends in marine ecosystems, highlighting the urgency of responsible waste management.

  5. Research on Pollution Sources and Patterns: Environmental researchers and scientists could use the model to better understand pollution patterns, trace source points of marine litter, and study their impact on marine ecosystems.
