The Oxford Robotics Institute (ORI) is a research institute within the Department of Engineering Science at University of Oxford.

ORI 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 systems design.  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.
