The Kafkoders group, in which some of our colleagues are involved, is one of the two winners of the first phase of the hackathon organized by NASA, called "Space Apps Challenge.

The team is formed by Álvaro Bartolomé del Canto, Luis Blázquez Miñambres, Juan David García, Carlos Martín de Arribas, Francisco Pinto Santos and two other students from the University of Salamanca Enrique Hernández Calabrés, Juan Julián Cea Morán, have designed a solution in the "Trash Cleanup" challenge, with the aim of giving a solution to the pollution in seas and oceans. 


To alleviate this problem, our colleagues have created a multi-agent system composed of three types of robots that collect, organize into clusters and collect garbage. The system is based on an algorithm that they themselves have designed.

The solution identifies the location and cleans the area, it then sends the collected data to the Ethereum-based Blockchain, to ensure its immutability and reliability. The information can be displayed in a simple and intuitive way from the iOS and Web applications.

The team has also created a donation system based on their own cryptocurrency, the "Kafcoin", which can be managed directly from the App.
