Vay is the first company to drive a car without a person inside on public streets in Europe and the US, enabled by teledriving (e.g. remote driving) technology. Vay aims to launch a sustainable, affordable, door-to-door mobility service with remotely driven (“teledriven”) cars: Teledrivers bring an electric car to the customer and pick it up after the journey is completed, eliminating the time-consuming search for a parking spot for the customer. While in the car, the customers drive themselves.

The European Innovation Council (EIC) Scaling Club has unveiled its selection of 48 firms to join its first cohort of deep tech startups. As one of the selected companies, Vay will join a select cohort of companies to engage with investors, corporate innovators, mentors, media firms and other industry stakeholders.
