About Us

Oxbotica is an autonomous vehicle software company.

Our technology enables machines to robustly navigate, understand and act in their specific environments.

Whether complete systems or individual components, Oxbotica’s pioneering, platform-agnostic technology can be integrated across multiple domains — from airports and warehouses to farms and mines, and even on other planets.

Our autonomous control system, Selenium, enables vehicles to understand their environment. Caesium is our cloud-based fleet management system, which schedules and co-ordinates fleets of autonomous vehicles.

Oxbotica’s mission is to enable our customers to access, customise and integrate the world’s leading mobile autonomy IP into their own products.

Oxbotica was founded in 2014 and is based in Oxford, England.
