Our Technology

May Mobility is building the world’s best autonomy system using its proprietary Multi-Policy Decision Making (MPDM) system, which can handle unique challenges, perform more reliably and scale faster than rules-based systems. Learn more about what sets our technology apart.

MPDM is the revolutionary technology that drives us.

May Mobility's MPDM system reframes the challenge for AVs: rather than telling a vehicle what to do and when—which is what rules-based systems do—MPDM continually runs real-time, on-board simulations to virtually imagine thousands of possible scenarios every second and enable a vehicle to decide for itself which action is the most safe. These endless simulations lead to emergent behavior that allows a vehicle to instantly solve every problem imaginable—and then some.

Our Approach to Autonomy: Multi-Policy Decision Making

Our Commitment to Safety

Riders and other road users’ safety is our top priority. Our combined sensor stack and unique Multi-Policy Decision Making platform work together to monitor the road and run simulations on possible situations and hazards far more reliably than rules-based systems. The result is a vehicle that reacts quickly with safe, predictable vehicle movements, which in turn ensures the safety of our riders—and everyone on the roadway.

Our Commitment to Accessibility

We’re passionate about providing equitable and accessible transportation to everyone. Using an ADA-compliant wheelchair ramp, our wheelchair-accessible Toyota Siennas can accommodate two riders in addition to a rider using a wheelchair. They can also accommodate service animals and an attendant.

Extensive Safety Features

Our safety features include a suite of redundant systems (ranging from redundant power to sensor communication), a robust fallback safety system, active monitoring and vehicle guidance (tele-assist) and more.

Turn-Key. Full-Stack.

Our unique approach to technology is one piece of a holistic turn-key model that includes vehicles, operations, community engagement and regular software updates and maintenance.

Designed to Adapt

Our autonomous drive-by-wire control system and autonomy stack can be applied to a wide variety of platforms—not just one auto-grade platform—to solve unique mobility challenges.

Better Data. Better World.

In addition to unlocking more potential in a variety of transit systems, our routes and vehicles collect data to benefit future planning for cleaner, safer, more accessible communities down the road.
