UK autonomous software company Oxbotica has signed a MoU (memorandum of understanding) with the global automotive technology company, ZF.
The two companies will combine expertise to create self-driving systems which can be industrialised and deployed across different applications.
As a first step, Oxbotica has already completed integration and demonstration of its autonomous vehicle software with ZF’s ProAI computer platform and its Full-Range Radar.
Ozgur Tohumcu, Oxbotica CEO, says: “Working with ZF is a key milestone in Oxbotica’s journey to bring our vision around Universal Autonomy to life. Our integrated autonomy stack is already running on vehicles on public roads in Oxford, UK. However, this concrete achievement is just the first step in a wider collaboration towards jointly developing and deploying world-class self-driving systems.”
Torsten Gollewski, EVP Autonomous Mobility Systems at ZF, adds: “We are delighted that Oxbotica has successfully demonstrated its autonomous driving software working with ZF’s ProAI hardware, since we both share the same vision around how autonomy will transform entire industries across the globe.”
Oxbotica is a global leader in autonomous vehicle software. It was founded in 2014 as an Oxford University spin-out.
