GERMAN CERTIFIABLE
AUTONOMOUS DRIVING

We developed an autonomous driving system based on cognitive neuroscience and groundbreaking German research.

A certifiable vision…

Motor Ai's software builds on a reliable perception layer and makes deductive, explainable decisions.

Because our system is based on human frontal cortex decision making, our self-driving technology does not need to drive millions of miles. Motor Ai's strong AI can scale itself while staying explainable and safe, even in complex traffic situations. It also adheres to European legal and ISO certification standards.

Motor Ai Technology

REPRODUCIBLE

Motor Ai technology uses a reproducible reasoning methodology to understand what real-time sensor inputs and meta data mean, instead of comparing them to trained scenarios. This way, novel and complex situations can be addressed with more accuracy.

EXPLAINABLE

Rather than most systems out there, our system is no black box. The decisions our AI takes are fully traceable and comprehensible.

CERTIFIABLE

Our technology is not only ISO compliant but is certifiable by German TÜV and insurance standards due to our reproducible and explainable approach. Motor Ai already started to certify its system with TÜV Nord for the whole of EU while competitors just lobby to change the constitutional laws surrounding AI.

INTELLIGENT

Strong AI means our technology can analyze and perform complex actions. Motor Ai uses cognitive AI rather than simple machine learning or convolutional neural networks. The Motor Ai System does not require to be trained on millions of driven or simulated miles. It does its reasoning and path planning the way an intelligence is able to make decisions.

SCALABLE

Our system is set out to scale and adjust itself. This means it does not require to be trained on each and one scenario but rather develops a comprehensive logical understanding of how traffic works, giving us a major cost advantage.

Environmental perception

voxelNet

We strongly believe in the necessity of a full sensor stack including LIDAR, radar, camera, and localization.

Sensor Fusion

Our sensor fusion models provide a detailed understanding of the environment by combining multiple sensors and adjusting for factors like weather or sensor malfunction.

Planning & Decision making

Motor Ai technology uses a reproducible reasoning methodology to understand what real-time sensor inputs and meta data mean, instead of comparing them to trained scenarios. This way, novel and complex situations can be addressed with more accuracy.

About Motor Ai

Motor Ai is Germany's only start-up on the road to Level 5 autonomous driving. We are working on obtaining TÜV certification for our self-developed system in the EU and Germany.

Our story

Motor Ai is the only German autonomous driving company specialized in addressing the safety and legal requirements set by the European Union. Motor Ai is building an Intelligence for level 4 and 5 autonomous vehicles. Our cognitive intelligence-based system is capable of making decisions in complex, urban traffic. In contrast to trained-model approaches, the system can explainably reach a decision in a completely new situation. This offers two great advantages: it is certifiable under international safety standards and does not need to be trained on infinite scenarios.

Motor Ai was founded in 2017. It was initially bootstrapped and quickly gained support through competitive accelerator programs such as the Horizon 2020 initiative by the European Union and through investments from experienced investors. Motor Ai's international team is composed of experts in computer vision and cognitive neuroscience.

Our vision

The vision of Motor Ai is to bring Europe’s first ISO-compliant, TÜV-certified, Level 4 and 5 autonomous car on metropolitan streets. This will mark a paradigm shift in the world's economy, society and urban transport - creating novel business models for the future.

Our tech

The co-founders Adam Bahlke and Roy Uhlmann and their team developed a novel approach to AI which involves explainable, logical reasoning based on neural nodes rather than machine learning systems that are reliant on trained scenarios. Motor Ai's domain specific strong AI is certifiable in Germany and in the EU and makes safer, justifiable decisions in the area of mobility - especially with regards to complex traffic situations.
