Underwater robotics is quite a less explored field & it’s interesting that Sampriti Bhattacharyya chose this space
Refreshing change to see Indians carving their niche across new spheres. Kolkata girl makes us proud by making her way into Forbes list of 30 under 30 – young change agents.
Her invention has been patented – Underwater drone [for easy understanding a robot] basically helps collect minutest data making the deep sea navigation easy. She claims that it is affordable compared to the existing options available.

For readers like me, to understand the importance of knowing ocean floor – consider the case of missing flight say MH370. It’s a huge relief to all the stakeholders involved in that unfortunate happening to know where the plane is. It can help in tracking the impact of pollution on aquatic beings.
More credit to her for thinking on the lines of making it affordable & accessible & bring robotics into our day to day life than just letting it be in labs.
Congratulations & good luck
