Ghost Locomotion

Ghost is an AI automotive company developing core self-driving tech which can be used to retrofit existing cars or enhance new ones.

Ghost is designed to drive better than the best human driver, so you can put your energy towards something better than traffic.

Ghost was founded in 2017 by John Hayes, & Volkmar Uhlig. The company is headquartered in Mountain View, California.

Ghost is laser-focused on building real self-driving for highways and providing a huge benefit to people sooner, and expanding from there.

Ghost’s entire approach is based on an axiom that the human driver is fundamentally correct. It begins by collecting mass amounts of video data from kits that are installed on the cars of high-mileage drivers. Ghost then uses models to figure out what’s going on in the scene and combines that with other data, including how the person is driving by measuring the actions they take.


Ghost’s system uses machine learning to find more interesting scenarios in the reams of data it collects and builds training models based on them.


Ghost is backed by Founders Fund, Khosla Ventures, Sutter Hill Ventures and other. The company raised $63.7M from a "Series D" financing on Nov 07, 2019. This new round brings Ghost's total funding to $127.4M to date.
