Oxbotica and Google Cloud partner to accelerate autonomous vehicle deployment.

Google Cloud and Oxbotica team up to develop scalable, safe, and reliable autonomous driving solutions for businesses across industries.

In a major development for the autonomous vehicle industry, British-based software developer Oxbotica announced a new partnership with Google Cloud. This collaboration aims to expedite the deployment of Oxbotica’s autonomous software platform to a global customer base. By combining Google Cloud’s expertise in cloud infrastructure with Oxbotica’s cutting-edge autonomous vehicle software, the partnership is set to create scalable, safe, and reliable autonomous driving solutions for businesses across industries.

The collaboration will enable Oxbotica to use Google Cloud products, including computing, storage, networking, and advanced data and analytics products such as Vertex AI. This will allow Oxbotica to develop, test, validate, and verify its self-driving technology while also leveraging Google Cloud’s cybersecurity technologies to ensure the secure use of autonomous mobility technology.

Oxbotica is set to leverage Google Cloud in its development of digital twins for its AI-powered metaverse, MetaDriver, which connects and controls virtual and physical fleets while providing real-time analytics on their performance. The use of digital twins helps ensure the safety of autonomous vehicles by generating a vast bank of virtual scenarios. To enable this, Google Cloud will provide data and machine learning tools that will allow MetaDriver to apply Oxbotica’s proprietary generative AI tools to an extensive bank of virtual scenarios, including rare edge cases that are typically difficult to discover in conventional testing due to economic, environmental, or physical limitations.

By utilizing the scalability of the cloud, Oxbotica will be able to analyze and process these large datasets more rapidly, allowing for more testing and experimentation across different use cases. This will speed up the time-to-insights and ultimately help improve the safety of the technology. For example, a user can create a complete 24-hour cycle of sensor data, encompassing seasonal and extreme weather conditions, from a single data capture run.

In addition to the development of its self-driving platform, Oxbotica’s collaboration with Google Cloud in generating digital twins for MetaDriver is a significant step forward in creating scalable and reliable autonomous driving solutions. Through this partnership, Oxbotica aims to continue solving transportation challenges while leveraging Google Cloud’s machine learning and data analysis capabilities.

Oxbotica is focusing on industrial use cases, recognizing the pressing need to transition to autonomy in today’s market. The practical applications of Oxbotica’s technology are wide-ranging, including the operation of passenger shuttles on fixed routes in cities, where there is a shortage of drivers but increasing demand for transportation services. In the UK, for instance, almost 10% of bus driver positions are vacant, resulting in a shrinking bus network across the country.

Thanks to the partnership with Google Cloud, Oxbotica’s customers can now rapidly scale from single prototype vehicles to entire fleets with ease. Furthermore, the collaboration will enable Oxbotica to investigate the larger impact of autonomous vehicles on traffic congestion, public transportation, and other areas.

By utilizing Google Cloud infrastructure, Oxbotica intends to offer autonomous driving application programming interfaces (APIs) to its customers, allowing them to develop new lines of business and more effectively manage their data and services.
