Summer school students visit ORI

ORI was delighted to host a group of international summer school students who were taking part in the Oxford Tradition.  We spent a wonderful afternoon introducing them to the exciting world of robotics research and were very impressed with their knowledge and enthusiasm.  A demonstration of our Snake Arm Robot was particularly well received.  The [...]

New project with Navtech!

In an exciting new project with Navtech Radar we are developing a sensor for autonomous vehicles which will provide 360-degree high resolution coverage in all weather conditions. This will significantly improve the capabilities and safety of the machines in difficult driving conditions, when safe and reliable transportation is most critical. With the majority of driverless [...]
