Faction: creating driverless, semi-autonomous vehicles for the cities of the future

Faction develops driverless vehicles that have the speed and performance of cars, but at the cost of a motorcycle. They seek to reduce emissions, avoid gridlock, and improve energy use by replacing urban large vehicle traffic with their semi-autonomous (size scaled) solution. Better for both the globe and your wallet, their novel tech will clear the way for smarter cities and a more sustainable tomorrow. Faction isn’t just a software company; they’ve designed and developed a fleet of their own from the ground up in partnership with select vehicle manufacturers.

"Most autonomous projects are taking existing vehicles and trying to retrofit them for driverless technologies. Rather than do the same things over and over again, we took a clean sheet approach from the chassis up."
