We create intelligent autonomous robots that navigate indoors and outdoors - anywhere
We have developed a comprehensive suite of cutting-edge technologies to enable robotic applications in mixed-use environments, ranging from crowded indoor spaces to busy urban streets. Our technology has run on robots spanning last-mile delivery on footpaths to a self-driving car which completed the UK’s longest autonomous drive without disengagement on the M1 motorway. Our technology has been comprehensively tested and deployed in the harshest weather conditions over a vast variety of operating environments.
We are launching - 'Challau'
Robot powered remote online tourism
Challau opens up tourist sites and visitor attractions to a global audience and lets travellers from around the world remotely visit and explore places from their homes
Visit far flung places instantly – completely online. Dial into a Challau robot from any location in the world and visit and explore that place from your home. See, hear, and move around by piloting your robot from your browser and keyboard. Take photos and record videos of your trip – all for the cost of a cup of coffee (completely free to try out in BETA).
Travel like you’ve never done before!
For Tourists Sites
Open up your tourist site to a worldwide audience of travellers 24/7. Bring in more visitors in less time with an added source of revenue and no setup or operating costs – we’ll own, manage, upgrade and maintain the Challau robot for your site completely FREE. Give your travellers an enhanced experience by overlaying augmented reality tours and games for delightful visitor experiences.
Processing of millions of 3D points per second to identify, cluster and track objects of any size, shape or type
MAPPING & LOCALIZATION
3D environment modelling as cm-accurate digital maps built using cameras, for navigation, position estimation and augmented reality
Classification of image pixels into over 30 object categories including pedestrians, animals, cyclists, vehicles, sky, road, and vegetation
SHADOW & GLARE REMOVAL
Image analysis to remove the effects of glare, shadows and reflections for improved scene understanding
CAMERA DEPTH ESTIMATION
Deep learning based per-pixel depth estimation and corresponding 3D pointcloud creation using camera video
Classification of 3D points into object candidates using low-level shape invariant data primitives
