The Mobile Robotics Group RobotCar trials

The Mobile Robotics Group RobotCar trials


The Mobile Robotic Group (MRG) welcomed teams from the BBC, Sky & ITN to Begbroke Science Park on February 14th as they tested their autonomous, electric vehicle RobotCar, a modified Nissan Leaf, on the site.

The MRG researches many aspects of mobile autonomy with a particular emphasis on the perception and understanding of large workspaces. The team have a field lab based at Begbroke Science Park, where they operate and develop the RobotCar as well as other robots, including a driverless Bowler Wildcat. The tests were carried out around the site with Professor Paul Newman, BP Professor of Engineering Science at Oxford University, and his team heading the trials.
