Founded in 1999 with a mission to reduce vehicle injuries and fatalities, Mobileye has created the most advanced collision-avoidance system on the market. At a time when automobile safety technology was focused on mitigating the severity of collision-related injuries, Mobileye set out to create technology to prevent collisions from occurring.

  • 1998
  • Concept is Born
    During a presentation about his research to an auto manufacturer, Professor Amnon Shashua – who teaches computer science at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem – was asked if it was possible for two cameras to identify a vehicle. Shashua’s response: “Why two cameras? It can be done with one.”
  • 1999
  • Mobileye is Founded
    Mobileye N.V. is founded by Prof. Shashua and Ziv Aviram as Prof. Shashua evolved his academic research into a technical solution for a vision system to detect vehicles using only one camera coupled with software algorithms on a processor. Long before most people predicted that vision safety or autonomous driving would become a trend, Mobileye begins investing in vision safety research and development. Within a year-and-a-half, with a single engineer and eight data processors having done the work, Prof. Shashua and Aviram return to that same auto manufacturer with a demonstration of their prototype.
