Assisted navigation

Underwater navigation is a tricky nut to crack, and the Blueye App is designed specifically to assist you in knowing where you are headed at all times. Assisted navigation with a compass ensures minimal drifting and more precision when needed. A 3D visualization of the drone illustrates the course of the drone relative to your own.

Assisted navigation

With the additional Blueye Observer app, you can share your inspections with colleagues as they happen. Once downloaded to your iOS or Android device, simply connect to the drones WiFi network and launch the Blueye Observer app. The live video stream from the underwater drone will appear immediately.
