Caesium is Oxbotica’s fleet management system, a cloud-based service that will schedule and co-ordinate our fleet of autonomous vehicles, enabling smartphone booking, route optimisation and data exchange between the vehicles without human intervention.
Later this year, Caesium will control the fleet of 8 GATEway pods in Greenwich, London. At a glance, a shuttle operator can view information about the shuttle, such as what mode it’s in (manual or autonomous), its velocity and heading, the amount of battery remaining, and the temperature of key components. It also shows its next destination. From the iPad that’s running Caesium, an operator can cancel autonomy at the touch of a button, or request maintenance.
In the GATEway project in Greenwich, London, we are also providing our Selenium autonomous control system to power 8 shuttle vehicles developed by Westfield Cars and Heathrow Airport, which will be used by members of the public in a 6 month demonstration starting early 2017.
