Safety is at the core of what we do here, and it’s at the heart of why we do it.
Safety is a central consideration for our self-driving technology, and we work hard to ensure that it remains a top priority at every stage of development.
Self-driving vehicles will make transportation more accessible, efficient, sustainable – and vitally – much safer than it is today. Our work is essential to making this a reality. We develop our technology to constantly monitor the road, identify and respond quickly to potential hazards, and prevent accidents caused by reckless or distracted driving behaviour.
Why safety matters
Every 22 minutes
someone is killed or seriously injured on UK roads
people are killed in car accidents worldwide every year
of all road traffic deaths involve pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists
Our safety framework
Our comprehensive framework ensures that we incorporate safety at every stage of development and every system level. It is organised around five distinct areas: functional safety, the safety of intended functionality, operational safety, crashworthiness and cyber security.
These are our Wayve Pillars of Safety and Security.
Wayve’s approach to testing self-driving vehicles in the UK.
