Oil and Gas

In the oil & gas sector, SeeByte has developed tools to automate complex subsea tasks. In order to lessen the demands placed upon operators, smart software technology can be used to make operations more efficient and consistent. Through SeeByte’s software capabilities, operators can focus on the job at hand with a higher level of confidence in vehicle control, improving quality and reducing the time and cost of performing a range of subsea tasks.


SeeByte is increasingly partnering with leading hardware manufacturers to provide enhanced capabilities for their sensors and systems. These partnerships are changing the subsea industry by providing turn-key robotic solutions, capable of carrying out complex and often risky operations in a safe and more efficient manner.
