We Are Motional

We're on a mission to make driverless vehicles a safe, reliable, and accessible reality.


About Us

Motional has been revolutionizing driverless technology for decades. Our DNA — a joint venture between automotive technology expert Aptiv and vehicle manufacturing leader Hyundai Motor Group — uniquely positions us to fundamentally change the way the world moves.

We harness deep industry experience in our mission to develop and deploy autonomous vehicles (AVs). Motional works closely with public and private partners to pair advanced driverless technology with a viable path to commercialization. We have begun fully driverless operations on public roads and we're more tightly integrated with the ride hail industry than anyone else.

Our Team

Motional was founded by some of the earliest pioneers in the AV industry. Today, our team comprises leading experts in robotics, machine learning, software, and hardware engineering.

Innovation is at the heart of Motional’s DNA. Our team dates back to two of the first AV start-ups in the world, nuTonomy and Ottomatika, founded out of MIT and Carnegie Mellon. Today, our leadership represents the foremost visionaries in autonomous technology who are driven by a mission of safer streets.

Safety Drives Us

We believe AVs can fundamentally improve road safety and save lives. 

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.
