The Journey Begins

Vay will launch a driverless, certified, commercial mobility service on public streets. Starting next year.

Unique about Vay is its teledrive-first approach to autonomous driving. Vay’s advanced technology enables a person (the “teledriver”) to remotely drive a vehicle (“teledriving”). This allows for a safe and timely rollout of driverless mobility services that users and cities trust as a human is still in full control.

Teledrivers remotely drive vehicles

Vay’s teledrivers control all vehicle functions including steering, braking and throttle, and make all driving decisions ensuring effortless, safe and efficient journeys. Our teledrivers are all professionally trained , certified and follow defensive and safe driving styles.

Next

Redundancies throughout the entire system

Vay’s use of multiple cellular networks combined with proprietary redundant hardware on both telestation and the vehicle side, ensures redundancies throughout our entire system. We abide by the highest automotive standards from ISO26262, ISO21434, up to ASIL D).

Next

Addresses top four reasons of fatal urban accidents

We address the top four causes of fatal urban accidents: intoxication by pre-shift checks that can avoid driving under the influence; speeding by establishing smart speed limiters; distraction by delivering an augmented navigation on screen that can reduce diversions; and our Teledriver monitoring system that can detect early fatigueness.

Next

Additional safety features increase augment human capabilities

Vay has developed a 360° degree blindspot-free vision that can highlight relevant pedestrians, cyclists or cars on the video stream. This, combined with Vay’s automatic emergency brake that is able to react faster than humans, delivers fast and safe responsiveness.

Vay's Services

Vay will start by offering the most affordable door-to-door transportation service. People can order a car, which arrives within a few minutes, and then drive themselves to their destination.

Upon arrival they will be able to leave the car without having to park it. This will be offered at a fraction of the cost of an Uber ride, which is why Vay believes its service will be highly competitive with owning a car in urban areas. Additional use cases can range from ride hailing to ride sharing, from parcel to food delivery, from buses to trucks.

Safety first.

Vay’s system is built to be safer than conventional driving by controlling the top four causes of fatal urban accidents, which are driving under the influence, speeding, distraction, and fatigue. In addition, Vay’s teledrivers have augmented skills, including 360-degree vision. In addition, relevant pedestrians, cyclists or cars can be highlighted on the video stream.

Lastly, Vay’s system is engineered to the highest and latest automotive safety & cybersecurity standards (ISO26262, ISO21434) and is using redundancies throughout the entire system, including on its hardware components and its cellular network connectivity.

Teledriving as a new path to an autonomous future.
A human-machine collaboration.

Human
Machine
Vay’s teledrive-first approach allows for a safe and timely rollout of mobility services that users and cities trust as a human is still in full control. Over time, while serving customers and based on high quality teledriving data, Vay is able to learn and then launch autonomous features gradually - starting with the ones that are safe and ready to deploy. Vay believes that we will enter a decade of human-machine collaboration instead of directly reaching full autonomy.
