Hernshead Recruitment

In 1998, two Oxford university graduates with a passion for technology saw a gap in the market for a land-based inertial navigation system and decided to act on this.

Two years later, the same two graduates created the CPS 2000 which was a GPS/INS navigation system and brought this to the market. The feedback from the market made it clear there was a need for a quality product that could provide real time measurements. In 2002 they produced the RT3000 and sold this to a car manufacturer in Germany. This was the beginning of a great journey.

Over 20 years later, this company now supply over 120 vehicle manufacturers, test houses and NCAP test facilities globally with their quality products to assist with conducting of advance safety tests. In 2021 they also launched an automated valet parking test facility which was the first of its kind in the UK.
