Our company name is pronounced as Bee–X.
‘Bee’ reminds us to never forget our foundational roots; the struggles at the beginning, the people who believe in us. It is the hard work put in by 7 generations of BumbleBee, the autonomous marine robotics team we started at the National University of Singapore.
‘X ‘ encapsulates our present and our future. Solving for the unknown is what we do. Our team decided on being trail-blazers. We are on a difficult but exciting discovery journey, overcoming challenges on the way. X is the long-term benefits of our work that goes beyond now; where we are striving to enable our customers to surpass status quo.
Our logo (designed by our software engineer Wei Hong) features 4 quadrants, indicating our specialization in hoover capable systems. Our vehicles will stay at a fixed position when programmed to do so. This is more challenging than traditional single-thruster systems, because we have to do a lot more hardware and software engineering. Incidentally, bees also have 2 pair of wings 🙂
Bees are an important part of our ecosystem on Earth, and is a natural enabler for life. They are hardworking and their honey makes our lives sweeter and better. That is our multi-disciplinary team, working together tirelessly to deliver the best outcomes for our customers.
This is the beginning of us, and we look forward to sharing more of our work!
