Budd joins the company as a non-executive board member, having played a key role in Arm’s growth from startup to global leader, including leading Arm’s processor business through a period of rapid expansion with the development of next-generation processor technology for the smartphone and mobile computing era. He joined Arm in 1992 as a design engineer, heading up development of several of Arm’s pioneering system-on-chip and single-chip computer designs.

With its proven technology and an ecosystem of world-leading partners in place, the company is uniquely positioned for growth. I am delighted to be joining the Oxbotica board of directors at this exciting time and look forward to working with the team to bring the benefits of Universal Autonomy to everyone, everywhere.”
