SoftBank and NVIDIA, as well as Microsoft’s among existing investors, provided $1.05 billion. Waive was the first to develop and test an end-to-end (e2e) self-driving system on public roads.

Wayve is creating basic models for self-driving cars, similar to “GPT for driving”, which can enable any vehicle to see, analyze and drive in any environment.

Last year, Wayve presented The 1st model of the generative world model for autonomous driving – GAIA1.
