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 [...]
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 [...]
ORI is starting a major new research direction into legged robots. Drs. Ioannis Havoutis and Maurice Fallon have recently joined as academic staff with research expertise in control, planning and state estimation on dynamic walking robots such as the IIT Hydraulic Quadruped and the Boston Dynamics Atlas. Below are upcoming papers in this research [...]
DRIVEN is an ambitious project which will see a fleet of fully autonomous vehicles being deployed in urban areas and on motorways, culminating in an end-to-end journey from London to Oxford. The Department of Engineering Science and the Oxford Robotics Institute (ORI) is part of the DRIVEN consortium of companies which will help to cement [...]
We used a NABU sensor attached to a street sweeper to map the streets of Oxford, in an innovative data gathering project which will help the City Council to plan and manage its services.
