Forbes “30U30 Europe”: 5 entrepreneurs in aerial / underwater/ space/land drones and robots.

5 talents are dedicating their time and energy to the use of robots, or drones, or driverless cars, or micro-satellites to make it happen and bring positive impact:

  • TRIK: real-time 3D mapping and a 3D reporting system for structural inspections using drones
  • Novelty RPAS: Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems for civil and police-related applications
  • Blueye Robotics: underwater drones operated from a smartphone that can explore 150 meters below the ocean’s surface
  • Siddartha Khastgir, PhD Researcher: Research on standards for driverless vehicles
  • ICEYE: constellation of radar micro-satellites that provides near-real-time imagery from space

Forbes issued on January 22 its 2018 edition of the “30 under 30” Europe, featuring 300 young entrepreneurs and talents who, across a wide range of categories from Arts & Culture, Finance, Technology to Industry, have demonstrated their capability and drive to make a difference and lead change in their industry.

Trik,  United Kingdom

Pae Natwilai, Founder

Natwilai is the founder of Trik, which provides real-time 3D mapping and a 3D reporting system for structural inspections using drones. The company’s drones use advanced computer vision technology together with a data management system that automatically turns drone photos into an interactive 3D model. This makes it easier to search look through the structural history of a building and plan repairs or maintenance.

Novelty RPAS, Poland

Tomasz Siwy, Cofounder

Siwy is the CEO of Novelty RPAS, which manufactures Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems for civil and police-related applications. The company was founded in 2013 and opened its current facility in 2016. The company’s products have been used by a variety of customers in Poland for applications such as inspection of industrial sites.

Blueye Robotics, Norway

Christine Spiten, Cofounder

Christine Spiten cofounded and runs business strategy, brand and professional relations for Blueye, a startup that develops and sells underwater drones operated from a smartphone that can explore 150 meters (about the height of London’s BT Tower) below the ocean’s surface. Founded in 2015, the startup has 19 full-time staff and has received 600 pre-orders for its drones. Five NGOs have used its prototypes for ocean mapping and cleanups in Norway, the U.S. and Australia. It’s currently raising new money in a Series A round.

Siddartha Khastgir, Research on standards for driverless vehicles, United Kingdom

PhD Researcher, University of Warwick

Khastgir is a PhD researcher at the University of Warwick, where his work is focused on developing standards for driverless vehicles and developing test methodologies for driverless systems. He is also a UK representative to the ISO technical committee responsible for creating standards in the field of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems and Automated Driving.

ICEYE, Finland

Pekka Laurila, 29, Rafal Modrzewski, 28

Literally an eye in the sky, ICEYE has developed a constellation of radar micro-satellites that provides near-real-time imagery from space. The startup’s proprietary tech allows it to capture images even without sunlight, giving it access to images anywhere on Earth and at any time. The company’s first microsatellite was launched into space to start operations in January 2018.
