The protection of the data we collect is very important. We treat it securely and with great care.
Artificial intelligence and data privacy
At Wayve, we’re building artificial intelligence (AI) capable of driving in any environment, anywhere in the world. Our self-driving technology is data-driven at every layer and constantly learns and improves. Our AI software learns from observing human driving and reinforcement learning, allowing us to learn efficiently at scale. As part of this process, we record data from our vehicle sensors and want to be transparent about how and why we do this.
How Wayve’s self-driving technology works
As a self-driving technology company, we do not build self-driving vehicles. We are developing the software, hardware, computing and operations infrastructure to power self-driving vehicles. When integrated into a vehicle, our fully automated driving system is capable of performing all driving functions under certain conditions, without the need for a human driver. This type of technology falls under SAE International’s definition of a Level 4 automated driving system.
What do Wayve record
We have a robust system for collecting and analysing data from all encounters we have on the road in order to improve the performance of our fleet. Our vehicles continuously monitor and log data from all test drives. This includes data from our camera and radar sensors and other information, such as the vehicle’s operating state. Using this information, we can analyse how our system detects and responds to external objects, develop new simulated scenarios for training, and even reconstruct the scene later on. We collect this data for research purposes and do not use it to identify individuals.
