Empowering a safer and more sustainable mobility ecosystem for all


Why we're here

In 2018, when we looked at the pace and the way how camera sensors were added to products in the mobility domain, we saw products that were not as smart as they should be to crack the immense challenges the sector would face. Products often were defined by their hardware and lacked innovation from software and especially had no utilization of cutting-edge machine learning.

At the time we had worked on self-driving car initiatives in Silicon Valley and Europe from maps and Tier-1s to OEMs and Academia. Our belief was that vehicle sensors – especially those generating visual context – should not solely contribute to safety applications. We wanted to go beyond that.

We saw a need for a different kind of technology to make cameras smart and turn fresh insights from millions of devices into the engine of new business models and the spark of new value created. That’s why we started Peregrine.ai

What drives us?

Zero accidents

Intelligent vision systems are perfect for identifying high-risk events and reducing accidents in global traffic. We are fully committed to contribute to VISION ZERO of the European Union.

Zero emission

Minimizing CO2 emissions caused by the transportation industry is a joint effort of many sectors. Visual data is key to better understanding inefficiencies in traffic and adapting to sustainable driving behavior.

Zero barriers

Mobility for all is easier said than done. We use our technology to point out barriers and limitations in infrastructure for people as well as new forms of transportation (e.g. ebikes, scooters).
