Caesium is Oxbotica’s fleet management system, a cloud-based service that schedules and co-ordinates fleets of autonomous vehicles. It enables route optimisation and data exchange between the vehicles without human intervention.
Caesium is used on the GATEway shuttles, showing a shuttle operator 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 UK’s first grocery delivery trials, Caesium scheduled and co-ordinated CargoPod’s deliveries around the neighbourhood in Greenwich.
