Meet The Team

Dr Colin Morgan
Dr Colin Morgan

With a Ph.D in theoretical physics under his belt, Colin was involved in the development of experiments that were carried on a series of NASA Nimbus research meteorological satellites in the 1960s. He joined the Oxford University Robotics group in 1981, where he was part of a team that developed both the design and analysis software for sensors for automatic seam tracking robotic MIG welding. He went on to become a founding member of the commercial arm of the Oxford Robotics group – Meta Machines Ltd, before founding Oxford Sensor Technology in 1989, a company that won four DTI Smart awards for its innovations.

Colin also won the Henry Ford Technology Award for the development of the first ever Automatic Robotic Glazing on a moving vehicle installed at the Ford plant in Dagenham.

Andrew Spalding
Andrew Spalding

Andrew introduced himself to the world of programmable systems with the purchase of a ZX Spectrum on its launch in 1982, and has not strayed far from a microprocessor since. After reading physics at Bath University, he developed an interest in industrial sensing and control systems at MTE Turck, before going on to provide electronics and microprocessor training at the Ford Motor Company. It was there that he came into contact with robotics for the first time and he has been working in this field for the past 15 years.

He lists cycling and canoeing among his interests, having cycled the length of Britain and canoed its width.

Steve Evans
Steve Evans

Steve has a Master's Degree in Electronics and Systems Engineering, and he has more than 30 years of experience in the design of electronic systems under his belt. He began his career at the Atomic Energy Research Establishment, was an electronics and computer specialist at Oxford University Engineering Laboratory and a microprocessor consultant at Oxford University Computing Services. He then spent six years as a senior electronics consultant.

He specialises in designing complex electronic and electro-optic systems for use in sensors, and his product designs include the Specula Reflection Sensor and Circular Scan Sensor. When he is not busy developing and designing electronics and software for industry, Steve can be found in the skies, piloting gliders and light aircraft.

Will Watt
Will Watt

After studying at John Moors University Will started work in 1996 as a Electro/mechanical Maintenance Engineer for Krupp Camford Ltd. where he was introduced to robotics and later became part of ABB’s Programming Standards team, developing the standard program to integrate a large variety of vendors equipment with the ABB controller. The standards were developed for the refit of three major car plants in the UK. Two of these installations required over 300 robots each.
