The demand for autonomous and spatially aware machines is increasing, with the market expected to exceed $100 billion by 2030.

But complex mapping and navigation challenges make developing this technology a lengthy and expensive process for companies.

In this episode, Nick Kingsbury is joined by Owen Nicholson, CEO and co-founder of SLAMcore, the startup using novel algorithms to help robots and drones understand where they are and what’s around them. They deliver highly reliable positioning and mapping intelligence on low power, cost-effective hardware.

Owen takes us back to the beginning and shares SLAMcore’s formation story, details how the pioneering technology works and shares its uses from vacuum cleaners to VR headsets.
