We are the Oxford Robotics Institute

Welcome to the Oxford Robotics Institute (ORI). We are built from collaborating and integrated groups of researchers, engineers and students all driven to change what robots can do for us. Our current interests are diverse  – from flying to grasping, from inspection to running, from haptics to driving, from exploring to planning. This spectrum of interests has us researching a broad span of technical topics – machine learning and AI, computer vision, fabrication, multispectral sensing, perception, systems engineering to name a few. So welcome to our homepage  – and if you don’t easily find what you want or have a question, please contact us.

The ORI is part of the Information Engineering Research Cluster in the Department of Engineering Science.

Introspective Radar Odometry

How do we know when we don’t know? This is an important question to answer in any situation where we need to navigate through our surroundings, and something any autonomous mobile robot needs to know too. We discuss this introspection capability and its importance to our radar-based navigation algorithms in our paper which is to be presented at ITSC 2019 - “What Could Go [...]
