Site Visit: Oxford Robotics Institute
Prior to our evening briefing - 'Industrial Strategy: Universities, Business and Innovation' - delegates have the opportunity to take up a site visit to the Oxford Robotics Institute.
The Oxford Robotics Institute researches all aspects of land-based mobile autonomy. They invent the technologies that allow machines to ask and answer “Where am I?”, “What surrounds me?” and “What should I do next?” and their research confronts fundamental questions in navigation, perception, machine learning and dynamic robotics. As part of several collaborative projects with academia and industry their research will:
- Improve inspection and monitoring of nuclear facilities (Robotics and AI for Nuclear Hub (RAIN))
- Develop technology for subsea, ground and aerial inspection and asset management in the offshore and oil/gas domain (Offshore Robotics for Certification of Assets Hub (ORCA))
- Deliver an ambitious project which will see a fleet of fully autonomous vehicles being deployed in urban areas and on motorways, culminating in an end-to-end journey from London to Oxford (DRIVEN consortium)
Prof Nick Hawes and Dr Jon Gammell will provide a guided tour of the ORI facilities. Please note places are limited.
Shortly after this visit there will be a panel briefing at Worcester College, Oxford. Please visit the event page to apply for a place for this event as well.
