Self-driving cars are coming and the benefits will be huge. With this new tech just around the corner, it’s vital that the new breed of transport services will be available to everyone.

People of every gender, race, age, ability and economic background must be able to use and benefit from a safe, accessible shared service.

What can we do to make sure this happens? How can we find, celebrate and amplify the voices that need to be heard? How can we create a service for all of society?

FiveAI is a venture-funded, UK company based in London, Cambridge, Oxford, Bristol, Edinburgh and Millbrook. Using the power of autonomy to transform Europe’s cities, for everyone. They bring together the best minds in AI, engineering and mobility to deliver a fully autonomous shared transport service.
