We are grateful for the financial help provided by our sponsors - without this we could not exist. In particular Nissan have provided both financial and technical support for interfacing to the LEAF vehicles and providing a superb platform to develop our navigation technology. EPSRC, through a Leadership Fellowship, have provided the space and resources to drive this project forward. Guidance Navigation Ltd and MIRA have each generously supported a PhD student in laser navigation and autonomy planning. Industrial support of academic goals makes so many things possible. Thank you.
LEAF Autonomy Project
In a world where advanced engineering technologies will increasingly shape success for organisations and the global drive for energy efficiencies, MIRA provides ground breaking engineering innovations and unrivalled testing solutions that change the way people think about the future of whole vehicle and systems technology.
The group has benefitted over the past years from several other sponsors - without them the group could not have grown and developed. In addition to the above many thanks to:
BAE who donated the Wildcat research vehicle which got us started on large scale outdoor navigation.
The Office of Naval Research
The Office of Naval Research who supported the development of MOOS.
Oxford Technologies who supported the development of laser and vision based scene understanding and motion estimation.
OC robotics who supported 3D scene construction from low cost lasers.
The European Commission
The European Commission who supported work in large scale scene understanding via several FP7 Projects (Europa and V-Charge)
