In the past we have had great success with driverless cars – self-driving vehicles equipped with ORI-developed autonomy software were tested successfully in public for the first time in the UK. In this project, however, we wanted to push forward autonomy to unlock its potential and test full L5 autonomy not just for driverless cars. We wanted a rugged platform which is robust to all weather conditions, could drive in places we have not typically seen robots drive before, and which could operate for many hours with minimal expert supervision.
