Planning for Multiple Robots in Congested Environments When most of us plan journeys, chances are at some point we open Google Maps to find an array of colours telling us that we will probably experience traffic at certain points on our journey. This allows us to plan our [...]
From Hilary Term onwards, Oxford Robotic Institute (ORI) is running an extra-curricular course for Engineering Science undergraduates to design and manufacture a 2D pen plotter. The "First Year Plotter Challenge" is an optional six-week activity that offers an opportunity to get hands-on experience of the entire engineering process: from CAD design, 3D printing, and electronic [...]
Exactly 7 years ago, MRG made the headlines as they demonstrated the first autonomous vehicle on UK roads, driving around Begbroke Science Park on a snowy winters day. Which makes today a great day to celebrate the achievements of this amazing robot. Since then, the RobotCar has become the most notable data collection platform [...]
Wolfgang joined ORI in February 2020 and works with Dr Ioannis Havoutis.
Learning from demonstration and reinforcement learning have been applied to many difficult problems in sequential decision making and control. In most settings, it is assumed that the demonstrations available are fixed. In this work, we consider learning from demonstration in the context of shared autonomy...
In late 2019, ORI acquired a second legged robot to join ANYmal, the primary platform for DRS over the last few years. Vision 60 is a rugged quadruped robot developed by Ghost Robotics, a spin-off of the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) based in Philadelphia.
Kevin joined ORI in 2016 as a DPhil student at Somerville College.
