The partnership will involve Oxa’s autonomy software being installed in a variety of vehicle types operated by Beep.
Oxbotica aims to use the investment to drive expansion into new geographical markets and more quickly deploy its autonomy software.
AppliedEV and Oxbotica combine their solutions to create a unique autonomous vehicle platform for a variety of applications.
A Ford Ranger and Range Rover Evoque, retrofitted with Oxbotica’s autonomy software and a full suite of sensors, was recently deployed in a U.K. quarry.
Oxbotica’s Selenium platform handles an autonomous vehicle’s navigation, mapping, perception, and machine learning. Oxbotica said Selenium doesn’t need to rely on external infrastructure such as GPS, lane markings or pre-existing HD maps.
