Our Beliefs.

We believe cars should not crash.

Despite all the technology in modern cars, accidents and fatalities are going up, not down.

We believe in keeping you protected, without exception.

Even the most advanced self-driving systems today struggle to navigate unpredictable scenarios or uncommon objects. Ghost overcomes these limitations with breakthrough artificial intelligence that can manage any driving scenario and react 5x faster than a human driver.

We believe “self-driving” means you really don’t have to drive. 

Unlike driver-assistance systems, which require constant human supervision and rely on last-second intervention, Ghost is so safe you are finally free to do something else behind the wheel.

We believe self-driving is for everyone.

While hardware cost and complexity limit other self-driving technologies to luxury cars and robotaxi fleets, Ghost’s driving platform is software-based and uses high-volume sensors, ideal for reaching mainstream consumer cars.

A new way to drive.

Founded in 2017, Ghost is pioneering a new approach to self-driving designed for safety, scale, and ultimately freedom.

Linear programming and robotics dominated the last two decades but have yet to deliver on the promise of safe self-driving for consumer vehicles.

We are creating a new driving platform and development process based on software and the latest in artificial intelligence to bring attention-free driving to life.
