About Peregrine

We improve traffic safety by bringing perception capabilities of self-driving cars to smartphone cameras and behind windshields of commercially used vehicles.

Peregrine is a Berlin-based AI tech start-up improving road safety and minimizing transportation CO2 emissions in cities. Therefore, we create a new quality of information from street-level video data by deriving context from traffic scene imagery. This empowers commercial fleets to operate safer and more efficient today and the autonomous mobility solutions of tomorrow. As traffic is a highly complex environment for pedestrians, drivers, and vehicles, Peregrine’s vision is to build the next generation of traffic video analytics for: Zero accidents. Zero emissions. Zero barriers.

Our diverse and international team brings together academic excellence and industry experience in robotics and autonomous driving from both Silicon Valley as well as from Europe – including leading automotive OEMs and suppliers such as Bosch, Volkswagen, HERE, and TomTom. We’re looking for smart, driven and passionate people motivated to solve hard problems. Are you ready to join us on this mission?
