Job Type


Humanising Autonomy is a London-based startup that is building the global standard of how autonomous systems interact with people. We were founded on the premise of enabling a safer, more human-centered implementation of autonomous technology, and called ourselves HumanisingAutonomy simply because that is what we want to do. We have developed a prediction software that is able to predict pedestrian, cyclist and other vulnerable road user behaviour and intent in real-time to improve global mobility systems.

The technology combines AI-powered computer vision and psychology to understand the full, nuanced range of human behaviour, and is able to predict the intentions of pedestrians, cyclists, and other vulnerable road users across cities worldwide. As a critical perception technology, the software integrates with all levels of autonomy (including autonomous and human-driven vehicles) to improve safety, efficiency, and pedestrian interactions.

Our customers include multinational leaders in the automotive and mobility space across Europe, the US and Japan. Having recently finished a $5M+ fundraise, we are looking to expand our lean team with more creative and practical problem solvers to help us develop this key technology for automated mobility, and realise our vision of better interactions between people and autonomous technology worldwide.
