Join us Making an Expert of Every Driver. We’re Hiring Active Safety Developers for Autonomous Vehicles.


In the hype of autonomous driving, driverless cars will need to be able to handle critical situations on the same level as very skilled drivers.

Sentient makes this happen. Want to join our team?

What if autonomous vehicles were driven like a mediocre driver was driving them? Would anyone with a high level of driving skill accept being driven in a car like that? Would he/she feel comfortable sending his/her children off to school, or to their leisure activities, in autonomous vehicles like that?

Would the public accept the autonomous cars on our roads performing worse than if a skilled driver were behind the wheel?

The answer to those questions is no.

Neither skilled drivers nor the general public would accept autonomous driving that’s less safe than today’s cars being driven by experienced drivers.

However, in the hype of autonomous driving, little is said about the critical situations every car will have to deal with, situations like aquaplaning and skidding on ice at high speed. We’re convinced that, when introducing autonomous driving, driverless cars will need to be able to handle critical situations on the same level as very skilled drivers.

Figure: Expectations regarding the capability to handle a critical dynamic situation.

That’s why Sentient’s Vehicle Motion Control makes the average driver an expert one, at the very least. Where traditional ESP prevents instabilities,  e.g. oversteer, Vehicle Motion Control prevents instabilities and follows the intended path, keeping the vehicle within its lane.

See the demo showing when our ‘artwork’ was presented to the King of Sweden using our patented Vehicle Motion Control:
