Blue Robotics’ story started in 2014 when they established a Kickstarter campaign for their original T100 thruster unit. Seeing the gap in the market for low-cost, modular and rugged thrusters, and an avid interest from hobbyists through to robotics companies, they set out to design a thruster unlike anything else available.
Since that memorable year, Blue Robotics has been on a mission to enable the future of marine robotics and now offers over 300 low-cost, high-quality components and systems including the BlueROV2 and the new T500 Thruster. Their stellar team has worked hard to make marine robotics components accessible with their open-source philosophy, community forums, and well-documented products.
Thanks to their hard work and innovative thinking, Blue Robotics has been recognised by the Society of Underwater Technology (SUT). The highly competitive Gwyn Griffiths Award for Underwater Robotics 2022 was given to Blue Robotics CEO Rustom (Rusty) Jehangir, which he shared is an accomplishment for the whole team.
Their dedication and passion for underwater exploration are why RS Aqua is ecstatic to be a Blue Robotics partner. Opening a great deal of modularity for our customers, their products are also already used on some of our existing systems like the T200 thruster on the YUCO Micro-AUV.
On the partnership, Martin, Managing Director at RS Aqua commented: “Over the last five years, RS Aqua have been building our robotics and autonomy capabilities with new partners like Seaber and Seamor and many new projects across the industry. Partnering with Blue Robotics is the next step for us in the field as it opens a new window of opportunity with super-configurable, low-cost robotic platforms, perfect for a diversity of projects across the blue economy”
We are looking forward to partnering up with Blue Robotics’ as a distributor and joining forces to enable safe and sustainable exploration of the oceans, our greatest and most valuable resource.
