All weather odometry and localisation for the most challenging conditions
Navtech Radar and Oxbotica, a leading autonomous vehicle software provider, have joined forces to deliver a radar based smart sensing solution for operation in all environments.
Unlike other systems on the market, the radar-odometry solution will work faultlessly in the most challenging situations and in any environment, regardless of the conditions. These applications range from mines and airports to warehouses and forests.
This partnership combines Navtech’s 20 years’ experience developing industry-leading, high performance sensing solutions with Oxbotica’s expertise in creating software for universal autonomy. Targeting a 2020 deployment, the unique combination of leading-edge hardware and software will enable next level autonomy.
Philip Avery, Managing Director of Navtech Radar, commented:
“Oxbotica is the perfect partner for us – a leader in its field with software that fits seamlessly into our products, and with an engineering culture that mirrors our own. We look forward to working with Oxbotica to deliver a crucial technology to the autonomous vehicle market, enabling safe operation in all conditions.”
Ozgur Tohumcu, Chief Executive Officer at Oxbotica, added:
“We are delighted to form this partnership with Navtech to boost the deployment of our software solutions to off-road autonomous vehicles. Autonomy in off-road environments has long been regarded as a challenge to satisfying the appetite for autonomy in industries. This alliance is proof that the right companies are already prepared to meet that need, and the application of autonomous software is ready for deployment in limitless ways. It’s testament to Oxbotica’s success to date and will further our entry into additional important industries where our technology can unlock efficiencies and create safer, more productive workplaces.”
