Document marine litter using underwater drones

Underwater drone

Scientists biggest challenge is getting access to the data they need on the conditions of the sea. Using a BluEye Robotics underwater drone, you can gather knowledge about the ocean and pollution levels. This can include mapping of marine litter or inspections of a particular area to cover potential changes over a period of time.

Plastic is sinking. Scientists have counted 1.9 million plastic pieces per square metre on the ocean floor.



  • You can monitor the marine environment without disturbing it
  • Makes it easier to collect and share data
  • Can reach places that its not easy or practical for humans to go
  • Information collected can be inputed into your own or larger global studies


  • Time in the water may be limited by drone battery
  • Expensive initial purchase price

Making a difference

With an underwater drone, their researchers are able to dive down to 150 m and reach areas where humans can’t, contributing to valuable research.

There are hundreds of other ways to solve plastic pollution
