According to statistics, due to the insufficiency and uneven distribution of water, African people spend more than 40 billion hours every year on obtaining it, about one-third of them spend 2 to 6 hours on walking each day for reaching the source of it. Furthermore, the lack of clean drinking water leads to 60% of disease that African people get.

Loxodon is a 2030 unmanned water-collecting vehicle that based on the concept of the African elephant. The name Loxodon means elephants. African elephants have a very strong body and always walk for a long distance in order to obtain water resources. They also have a very docile personality and can be trained for human use.
