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
