      Mobileye is one of the leading technology companies in Israel and the world. Integrating research capability and technological vision, Mobileye makes it possible to drive safely and save lives. EyeQ®, Mobileye’s System-on-Chip, provides real-time visual recognition and scene interpretation for cars and trucks, preventing accidents and saving countless lives every day.

      Professor Amnon Shashua, the Sachs Family Professor of Computer Sciences, of the Rachel and Selim Benin School of Engineering and Computer Sciences at the Faculty of Science, invented Mobileye, which raised $890 million in its U.S. IPO–the largest in Israel’s history. By the end of 2014, 160 car models from eighteen manufacturers will be equipped with this revolutionary life-saving collision-avoidance system.

      in 2017, Intel acquired Mobileye for $15.3 billion — the biggest-ever acquisition of an Israeli tech company.

      See the video (in Hebrew) to see President Barack Obama receive a Mobileye demonstration in Jerusalem.
