A Smarter Underwater Drone

By integrating smarter and more autonomous technology with underwater robotics, Youcan Robot opens the door to nearly anyone to explore.

Underwater Image Recognition

When the Intelligent Tracking Mode is enabled, BW-Space's underwater camera uses cutting-edge image recognition technology to identify any person in view.

Smart Diver Tracking Mode

Once initiated, Intelligent Tracking Mode will automatically follow that person throughout the water wherever they go without any user piloting control required.

Intelligent Underwater Lighting

When the 'Smart Auto-Adjust Lighting Mode' is enabled, BW-Space's powerful Dual LED Lights automatically adjust anywhere from 0 to 1,380 Lumens to maintain optimal lighting.

Stunning Underwater Photography

Even without the autonomy and intelligent lighting, BW-Space's underwater cinematography is impressive with its superior image quality.

Got A Question?

Check out some frequently asked questions about BW-Space drones.

  • What are the differences between BW Space and BW 1?

    BW1 does not include auto-tracking, BW Space is the first of our line that offers this feature. BW Space also includes automatic light adjustment with BW Space having 2 1380lm LED lights, while BW1 is has 1 1200lm bulb.

  • Does BW Space can track any sea creatures in smart tracking mode?

    No, at present, BW Space's intelligent tracking mode is intelligent tracking of people's appearance, which can track divers and swimmers, and can not track the unique forms of any sea creatures.

  • Can BW Space track multiple people simultaneously in smart tracking mode?

    No, BW Space can only try to lock one person in the picture, when you turn on smart tracking mode. If there are multiple people in the screen, it may not be possible to lock on your target person. If the smart tracking mode is enabled, multiple similar objects appear on the screen, which may result in the failure of the smart tracking mode. Manual control needs to be enabled to restart the smart tracking function.

  • What is the valid range of target recognition in intelligent tracking mode?

    0.5-5m

  • Can BW Space automatically avoid obstacles?

    No, it is not currently possible to automatically avoid obstacles.

  • How does BW Space's automatic light adjustment function work?

    After turning on the automatic light adjustment function, BW Space can automatically adjust the brightness of the light according to the external light perception, making the shooting smoother.

  • What is the use of the tether?

    The tether is used to transmit the BW Space's video signal to the WIFI base station. Because video signals can not be transmitted in water, cables are needed to keep underwater and surface communications. At the same time the tether can also prevent the loss of BW Space.

  • What is the maximum working time for BW Space?

    BW Space can reach 5 hours of battery life under normal use. Because BW Space is neutral buoyancy, BW Space can shoot up to 7 hours with less propeller work.

  • What is the capacity of the BW Space’s SD card? Can users change it independently?

    The built-in SD card of BW Space is 64G or 128G, and users cannot change it independently.

  • Where can I get the app to control BW Space?

    The app is available for iPhone/Android phone/iPad/Android pad and is available from the App Store & Google Play.

  • What is the BW Space’s tether strength?

    The work tensile strength is 50kgf, fracture work intensity is160kgf. If BW Space is out of power, you can pull the tether to recover it.

  • Does BW Space ship to my country? How much is the shipping fee?

    We ship worldwide! Shipping to the US /Japan/China (except Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) is free. Shipping to the rest of the world is $30.

  • Can BW Space's battery be replaced?
