We are expanding our RoBi-Xpert team of world-class freelance robotic experts who can join our high-level robotic design and development projects under our RoBi-X program. Here we engage with globally leading partners and create the robotic products of tomorrow. We invite you to be part of it all.

At Blue Ocean Robotics we create and commercialize robots. We apply robot technology to create solutions and innovation for end-users and new businesses in partnerships. In Blue Ocean Robotics we are proud of creating tomorrow's robots, whether it is a patient lifting robot, a roboticized lobster production system or a UV-Disinfection robot. Robots which will create value and sense for humans in a joint partnership, from our RoBi-X partnership program.

The RoBi-X Partnership program in Blue Ocean Robotics

Our RoBi-X Partnerships consist of six sequential phases where our team of specialists is taking lead in designing and developing new robot solutions that address unmatched user needs, problem statements and business opportunities. Our freelance robotics experts are mainly tapping into our RoBi-Roadmap, RoBi-Design and RoBi-Develop projects.

1. RoBi-Roadmap

In this first phase the RoBi-Roadmap analyses an entire system of business processes as well as the market and business aspects related to the operation. We identify opportunities for transforming processes to more automated processes by using robotic technology (so-called RPA’s) and we combine those into system level concepts (so-called SLC’s). Altogether these are assessed- according to risk, the investment required, business potential, timeline, etc. and are then prioritized and laid out on a roadmap for the development and implementation onwards. For those of our partners which not only have a single process or product opportunity but an entire system to be considered the RoBi-Roadmap is an ideal place to start the RoBi-X Partnership program.

2. RoBi-Design

As the second phase, RoBi-Design aims at investigating the business potential of developing a new robot solution for a specific application in the market – and as well to develop a robot concept and supportive business plan to realize the business opportunity. Hence, the RoBi-Design is an ideal starting point for kickstarting the innovation process.

For our RoBi-Design phase we have developed a methodology based on the principles of Front-End Innovation and Co-Creation, which partly aims to analyze the specific pain, Job-To-Be-Done, user needs, business case etc. from a technical- and business-oriented perspective – and partly to develop a robot concept and business plan by involving end-users, stakeholders and market experts.

3. RoBi-Develop

The RoBi-Develop phase partly aims to develop a robot concept into a range of final product versions – and partly to prepare for commercialization through marketing and pre-sales activities. RoBi-Develop is an opportunity when venture capital has been fundraised for an R&D project, thus it is an ideal continuation of a RoBi-Design project.

Our RoBi-Develop phase is based on the latest innovation methodologies for high-tech products. The product development is achieved through build-test-revise iterations with continuous involvement from end-users and other stakeholders to ensure a high level of value creation.
