As you browse through our community forums, you may come across the term “DVL”. What is this piece of equipment and why is it useful?
Originally published in Sea Technology Magazine, Volume 61, #1, January 2020 With ocean health becoming a topic of increasing public concern, there’s a growing interest in using marine robotics and sensing to solve ocean-related problems. Marine robotics and sensing can drive public awareness, scientific understanding, and direct intervention to ocean health problems at a scale […]
Do you ever wonder what robots could do if they had minds of their own? We do, too. Meet our friend and partner, Antonella Wilby, a National Geographic Explorer whose current research focuses on developing vision-based algorithms for underwater robots. The goal of her research is to create semi-autonomous robots that are both curious and […]
Hello everyone! With the new year, we wanted to highlight all the work our engineering and production teams have been doing to make our products better.
Originally published in ROV Planet Magazine, Issue 21 As you page through the latest marine news, it’s easy to see why ROVs and other robotic marine vehicles are nearly synonymous with the industrial and commercial world. The value they provide is undeniable and worth a heavy price tag. Less obvious are the many applications where […]
Underwater robots have been an important tool for marine science, exploration, and work for the past thirty or forty years. We’ve become familiar with terms like ROV and AUV to describe types of subsea vehicles and these terms have been stable for years. However, there’s a new term cropping up in the last few years: […]
Friends! What’s better than a BlueROV2? A BlueROV2 that can run indefinitely! We are so ecstatic to announce today’s newest addition to the Blue Robotics product line – introducing the Outland Technology Power Supply for the BlueROV2! Check out the launch video below and read on for all the details! But first, watt is so […]
If you are a BlueROV2 user, you are probably familiar with the open-source software project, ArduSub, and how it can open the door for countless possibilities for your vehicle and its capabilities. But, did you know ArduSub is used for a myriad of vehicles that are NOT the BlueROV2? Our friends at SeaView Systems […]
Hi friends! We are excited to introduce the newly redesigned 2″ Locking Watertight Enclosure Series! There are lots of little changes that will make this generation of watertight housing components more robust and secure – let us share some background and explain the key features! 🔑🔒 Background The 4″ Watertight Enclosure Series was one of […]
One of our favorite things about Blue Technology is the impact it is making on ocean health and conservation efforts. While many researchers use ROVs for monitoring marine life and coral reefs, our friend, Allison Chua, is using her BlueROV2 in a multinational collaboration on oil spill research. Based out of a lab […]
