Title: Introducing the new Navtech-Oxbotica radar localisation solution
Delivering accurate localisation for autonomous vehicles in all conditions, everywhere.
Date: Wednesday 5th May 2021
Time: 11:30 - 12:00 (GMT +1)
In this candid online event, hosted by Dr Inken Braunschmidt, Chief Innovation and Digital Officer at Halma, Navtech Radar's Founder and Managing Director, Philip Avery, and Oxbotica Founder and CTO, Professor Paul Newman will discuss how they joined forces to develop a new radar based localisation solution that is unlocking the full potential of automation with proven accurate localisation, even in the harshest conditions and environments.
They will also be joined by Mike Woods, Chief Technologist at BAE Systems Maritime Services who will talk about how they are already applying this advanced technology to bring a new level of capability to their marine operations.
Join our speakers for the launch of the next-generation localisation product that brings together Navtech's unique high-resolution, 360°, all-weather radar technology with Oxbotica's world-leading autonomous vehicle software.
