The Journey
with Ghost

Our Destination

At Ghost, we’re bringing the dream of self-driving to you and your car. People drive more than one billion cars around the world each day. Our product makes driving safer and more enjoyable, starting by relieving you of the unpleasant and dangerous parts of your commute.

Our Path

Billions of people coordinate on the roads each day to safely reach their destinations. We have built our driver to behave like you -- capable of intelligently sharing the road with other drivers, bikers, and pedestrians.

Trained by observing millions of real-world miles driven by real people, our driver is as safe or safer than a real person. We mathematically verify the safety and human quality of our driver, ensuring trust, comfort and familiarity to everyone inside and outside your vehicle.
