Blue Frog Robotics, developer of BUDDY, “The Emotional Robot”, was founded by former CRIIF (Robotics lab) Executive Director Rodolphe Hasselvander, Serial Entrepreneur. Founded as a spin-off of the CRIIF, we have extensive experience in industrial and service robotics. We bring BUDDY to the world by opening the platform to developers, universities, educational institutes and research laboratories. Because you can develop your own applications, BUDDY will continue to grow and interact with you more than you can imagine! Our goal is to design and develop robots that are accessible to everyone and help people live easier and safer, and have fun.
