At Blueye Robotics it is believed that millions could be saved, accidents reduced, marine life improved, and knowledge enhanced if underwater inspections were made more frequently.
Blueye Robotics believe in acting proactively versus reactively, therefore they want to empower people with user-friendly and robust underwater technology. Blueye has its roots in the highly renowned Centre for Autonomous Marine Operations and Systems (AMOS) at NTNU in Norway. Exceptional ease of use and robustness has been the overarching design goals since the beginning. Drawing on competence from world-leading marine engineers, seasoned software developers and award-winning industrial-, mechanics- and electronics designers the company has created possibly the world’s best underwater drones. Blueye was founded in 2015 by Erik Dyrkoren, Martin Ludvigsen, Christine Spiten and Erik Haugane. Erik D. came from his position with SINTEF Ocean, while Martin run NTNU AMOS – Centre for Autonomous Marine Operations and Systems. Together with Christine Spiten they joined forces to create technology that made access to what’s below the surface easier. Angel investor Erik Haugane liked the idea, came onboard and funded the foundation of the company. The company originally had the consumer market in mind but as the team never compromised on creating a user friendly and robust product, it pivoted into serving professional clients.
Blueye has delivered technology across a vast range of customer applications ranging from dam inspections, aquaculture, ship inspections, law enforcement, wastewater & drinking water management, marine surveillance, tourism and education (to mention some). Coming from Norway, serving its home market has been the focus area: still, Blueye has clients in more than 40 countries worldwide. Today, the Blueye Team consists of 20 dedicated experts from different countries, working on many levels of software, robotics, mechanical- and industrial design, underwater technology, graphics design, business development, sales and marketing.
