Mobile Autonomy: A Pervasive Technology

The Oxford Robotics Institute – Autonomous Systems researches all aspects of land based mobile autonomy. We invent the technologies that allow machines to ask and answer “Where am I?”, “What surrounds me?” and “What should I do next?” These three  key questions underpin all that we do. They force us to confront fundamental questions in navigation, perception, machine learning and dynamic robotics.  We are proud of the way we validate our thinking and challenge ourselves by deploying and running large robotics systems. These “flagship” projects, drawn from many application domains are central to our mission – we solve real world robotics problems. In 2014 a spin-out company called Oxbotica was launched to drive commercialisation and cross domain impact  of our work.
