Wayve is an autonomous driving startup pioneering artificial intelligence software for self-driving cars.

Wayve is building artificial intelligence capable of complex driving using end-to-end deep learning; one which can scale across diverse urban environments.

Wayve was founded in 2017 by Amar Shah and Alex Kendall. The company is headquartered in Cambridge, United Kingdom.


Wayve's unique end-to-end machine learning approach learns to drive in complex, never-seen-before urban environments. The company's driving intelligence is built to suit autonomous mobility at scale, moving people, goods, and more.


Wayve relies largely on commodity video cameras around the vehicle tied to on-vehicle AI-driven software, making it highly responsive to its surroundings as it relies less on being connected to 4 or 5G networks.


Wayve's AV2.0 technology is designed specifically for fleet operators, combining a camera-first approach with an embedded AI that continually learns from driving data provided by Wayve’s other partner fleets.


Wayve is backed by Balderton Capital, Eclipse Ventures, D1 Capital Partners, Baillie Gifford, Moore Strategic Ventures, Microsoft, Virgin, Palo Alto Ventures, Ocado Group, Compound Ventures, and others. The company raised $200M in Series B round on Jan 18, 2022. This brings Wayve's total funding to $256.6M to date.
