Our world-class partners enable us to take the fastest route to a safe and scalable AI Driver
Let us answer your questions about our self-driving vehicles.
Wayve is a start-up developing AI technology to bring self-driving vehicles to roads.
We test our self-driving cars in the UK, primarily in London. We also occasionally test in other cities to see how well our technology performs in different road structures and traffic densities. So far, we’ve tested in Cambridge, Coventry, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester.
All cars and vans fitted with Wayve’s self-driving technology are part of our fleet of self-driving vehicles. In the future, we plan to work with our fleet partners to fit their vehicles with Wayve’s technology so they can drive autonomously, meaning on their own, without a human driver operating them.
Our highly trained drivers monitor how the technology performs and step in to correct it if needed. They can switch the car back to manual driving or override the self-driving features at any time.
Yes, the technology is tested extensively before it goes out on the roads. It’s also constantly being updated as our engineers learn more about how it behaves in any and all situations. And there’s always a highly trained driver behind the wheel monitoring how the technology performs.
Yes, we are allowed to test self-driving vehicles on public roads with an expert driver behind the wheel. We work closely with the Government, which has approved our testing method, and with the police to ensure optimum safety at all times.
Self-driving cars have great potential to change transportation for the better. These vehicles will make travel more affordable, efficient and accessible. They will lead to fewer cars on the road, which means less congestion and emissions. They will also be able to support those with reduced mobility and those unable to access other forms of transport.
Our technology is very advanced and progressing every day. We are currently preparing our technology for food and parcel deliveries, so it’s likely that your first experience with one will be during such a delivery.
