We’re creating the technological foundations for tomorrow’s self-driving revolution

Read about our latest approach to demonstrating self-driving system safety ⟶

Self-driving vehicles, and the benefits they will bring about for millions of people, are no longer a distant dream.

But challenging work lies ahead for autonomy programs, and not only in advancing online software components. Programs also need more sophisticated offline infrastructure, helping them to develop the online technology, and both measure and deliver safety assurance for the whole system.

Deep collaboration between complementary teams is the only efficient way to tackle these immense challenges.

Together, we will turn today’s promising engineering systems into tomorrow’s trusted mobility solutions.

Building answers for the self-driving industry’s greatest challenges

Five is one of the few companies with the science and engineering expertise to tackle these challenges. Our team has learnt a lot from successfully building its own high-functioning, complete self-driving system and testing it on London’s public roads.

We now define our mission in two ways


Build a modular, cloud-based platform that delivers performance and scale for system development and assurance.


Deliver advanced online components that address the most under-solved challenges in self-driving systems.

Why Five?

Self-driving projects partnering with Five benefit from our four key sources of expertise.

Unique insights

We’ve learned from building and using one of the world’s most advanced self-driving software stacks, developed and trained for London’s public roads.

Specialist knowhow

Deep expertise in advanced simulation, validation and verification from the worlds of semiconductors, aerospace and games.

World-class talent

Five’s team includes computer scientists, mathematicians, engineers and roboticists drawn from the world’s top universities and engineering teams.

Global collaborator

We’re playing an active role in industry-wide collaborations, ensuring taxonomy and interfaces follow (or lead) emerging global standards.
