GrayMatter, Inc. was formed in 2005 when brothers Michael and Eric Gray, owners of The Gray Insurance Company, Inc., had a vision to develop a fully-autonomous vehicle. The Grays are active hobbyists who in their spare time have researched and implemented various technologies in both aircraft and maritime vessels. Their research led to contact with several leading experts in these fields.

The Grays brought together these experts, along with other specialists in mechanical and electrical engineering and computer science, to form GrayMatter. Since its inception, this synergy has resulted in highly innovative solutions for autonomy, including everything from vehicle and sensor selection to software and mechanical design. Also, ‘Team Gray,’ the competition division of GrayMatter, has participated in the 2005 DARPA Grand Challenge and the 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge.
