Mobileye, recognized as on of the global pioneer’s in developing Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), was founded in 1999 by Professor Amnon Shashua and Mr. Ziv Aviram. Ever since its inception Mobileye’s goal is to develop and market vision-based systems that will help drivers keep passengers safe on the roads and decrease traffic accidents.
Mobileye’s development center, located in Har Hotzvim, Jerusalem is one of the world’s largest machine vision development center and employs approximately 200 research and development employees. In addition, the company has offices in the Netherlands, the United States, Japan and Cyprus.
Mobileye has invested over 12 years in R&D and has gained an unparalleled know-how. The company is one of the global leaders in the development of monocular vision-based Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), providing system-on-chip and computer-vision algorithms to run DAS customer functions such as Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Vehicle Detection for radar vision fusion, Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Headway Monitoring (HMW), Pedestrian Detection, Intelligent High Beam Control (IHC), Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR), vision only Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and more.
Mobileye has been selected by a wide range of global automotive companies for their production vehicles, including BMW, GM, Volvo, Hyundai, and more. To date, Mobileye’s technology has been implemented and launched by BMW on multiple production platforms: 5-Series, 6-Series, 7-Series, Volvo S80, S60, XC70, XC60 and V70 models, and GM on the Buick Lucerne, Cadillac DTS and STS.
Currently Mobileye has a wide range of Tier1 partners. These include Autoliv, Delphi, Continental AG/Siemens VDO, Magna Electronics, Leopold Kostal GmbH, TRW Automotive Mando Corporation and SL Corp. Each Tier1 partner brings unique technical and commercial advantages and hence Mobileye has secured multiple series production wins with most partner companies.
Mobileye’s key technical breakthroughs lie in the use of a mono camera for all of its applications and in bundling together multiple applications to run simultaneously on a single EyeQ®and EyeQ2® processor based camera. Mobileye therefore has clear advantages in offering systems with multiple functions on a single hardware platform and in performing tasks previously only possible by an array of different sensors.
Mobileye’s award winning EyeQ™and EyeQ2™ vision processors represent a major breakthrough combining high performance, low cost and the consolidation of multiple applications on a single platform. They enable high-end functions combinations to be offered to all market segments.
Mobileye’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems’ consumer product line contains features already in OEM production and new customer features to be launched by OEMs in the future. Mobileye C2 series is sold worldwide as an Aftermarket safety solution for passenger cars and commercial fleets.
Mobileye is the recipient of several prestigious awards including the Best Telematics Safety & Security Solution Award, International Fleet Industry Award 2011, the Red Herring Top 100 Innovators Award and the Frost & Sullivan 2006 Entrepreneurial Company of the Year Award in the Automotive Industry. This recognition signifies the company’s identification of a unique and revolutionary product solution with significant market potential.
