In this episode we chat to Paul Newman, founder & CTO of Oxbotica, a start-up company that has grown through to be one of the world’s leading autonomous driving software companies. They build software for real-world application, drawing on principles of physics, robotics, maths, AI and are heavily involved in the mining industry.
Paul is a creator, pioneer and innovator of autonomous vehicle technology. He is CTO at Ox-bot-ica, holds the BP Chair of Information Engineering at the University of Oxford, and is Director of the Oxford Robotics Institute. We discuss in more depth the technological advances in automation within the mining industry like they have with companies including Wenco and Bp who they have partnered with
- The primary focus behind Oxbotica is to change the way in which people and goods can be moved, by creating software that changes the way machines learn and adapt.
- Universal autonomy is the art of creating software that can cause machines to adapt to any sector, no matter what the field of business.
- The key to autonomous vehicles is to create a free flow of information that can be called upon by any vehicle at any time depending on the situation.
