Prof. Paul Newman

Paul Newman CBE FREng, FIET, FIEEE is a creator, pioneer and innovator of autonomous vehicle (AV) technology.

He is the Founder & CTO (Chief Technology Officer) at OXA (formerly Oxbotica), BP Professor of Information Engineering at the University of Oxford, and Founder & Director of Oxford Robotics Institute. His pioneering approach to AV technology is being successfully harnessed for real-world application at OXA - on roads in four continents, down mines, across warehouses and around airports. He makes and leads teams that use bits to move atoms.

In 1999, Paul set out the fundamentals of the large-scale navigation problem SLAM (simultaneous localisation and mapping) which underpins the driverless vehicle revolution. After three years at MIT 2000-2003, working on subsea and land autonomy, he returned to the UK and built the UK’s first AV stack. He continues to lead the way in AV innovation, having authored 200 papers, garnered 16,000 citations and registered 22 patents.

Beyond his responsibilities at OXA and the academic world, Paul is a strategic advisor to businesses and organisations at the Government level. He currently serves on the UK Government’s Department for Transport Science Advisory Council and is on the BSI Standards Committee for AV technology. In 2015, he was elected a Fellow of the IEEE (Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers), the IET (Institute for Engineering and Technology) and the Royal Academy of Engineering. Paul was awarded a CBE in the King’s Birthday Honours List for 2023 for his outstanding contributions and services to the field of Engineering and Technology in the UK, which have extended around the world.
