Navtech Radar becomes an official member of the Oxford Robotics Institute
We are pleased to announce that Navtech is now an official member of the Oxford Robotics Institute (ORI - Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford). Having collaborated with ORI on a successful feasibility study last year, we are excited to enhance our partnership in order to better understand the technical requirements for autonomous vehicle sensing.
ORI is at the forefront of robotics innovation, with some of the greatest minds in the industry, and is one of the few research groups dedicating significant time to radar technology in this field. Navtech’s 360°, high-resolution radars operate in all weather and environmental conditions, and both Navtech and ORI recognise the radar’s potential for advanced navigation and perception applications.
As a member of ORI, we will be able to share resources, data and expertise in order to rapidly progress our work on autonomous vehicle technology. Our aim is to significantly improve the capabilities and safety of the machines in adverse weather and environmental conditions, when safe and reliable transportation is most critical.
ORI shares our core value of continuous innovation and our mission to create robust and efficient solutions that users can have the utmost confidence in.
“Navtech has been providing sensors for industrial autonomous vehicles for 20 years; with innovation in our DNA, we are delighted to work with ORI to provide safe and reliable solutions for the transport of the future.”
- Philip Avery, Managing Director of Navtech Radar
Professor Paul Newman, Director of the Oxford Robotics Institute added:
"We are delighted to be working so closely with Navtech Radar - it speaks to the strength of the tech industry in Oxfordshire and the UK. The partnering will accelerate the art of the possible in what machines can do with radar."
