Oxbotica was founded in 2014 by Oxford professors, Paul Newman and Ingmar Posner. Since then, we have grown from a start-up through to one of the world’s leading autonomous driving software companies. We build software for real-world application, drawing on principles of physics, robotics, maths, AI and a dedicated team to perfect our technology.
Our autonomous vehicle software is deployed across multiple sectors, bringing the benefits of autonomy to businesses globally. We’re working to build an eco-system that supports the adoption of autonomous vehicles, building partnerships to accelerate the deployment of Universal Autonomy.
