Motional’s Approach to Safety
Driverless vehicles have the potential to fundamentally improve road safety by eliminating accidents caused by human error. Motional’s autonomous vehicles are never drunk, drowsy, or distracted. They’re expert drivers; singularly focused on the task at hand: safely traveling from point A to point B.
We employ the highest safety standards at every stage of our development, testing, and deployment.
In 2021, Motional released a Voluntary Safety Self-Assessment (VSSA), which offers an in-depth look at our safety approach. In the VSSA, we outline our safety validation process which includes what we describe as our three main test settings: simulation, closed course, and public roads. We voluntarily made the VSSA public so that any member of the public can learn more about Motional’s rigorous safety standards and processes.

Zero at-fault incidents
We’ve maintained an exceptional driving record of over two million autonomous miles and over 100,000 public rides – all with zero at-fault incidents.
