Mr. Ziv Aviram
Co-Founder & Co-ChairmanBefore co-founding OrCam, Mr. Aviram co-founded Mobileye, with Amnon Shashua, an Israeli technology company that develops vision-based advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) providing warnings for collision prevention and mitigation. Today 90% of the world’s leading automobile manufacturers rely on Mobileye technology to make their vehicles safer to drive. In addition, Mobileye’s revolutionary autonomous driving technology is going to completely change the way people will drive cars in the future. In August 2014, Mobileye claimed the title for largest Israeli IPO ever, and in August 2017, Intel acquired Mobileye for a valuation of approximately $15.3B, the biggest ever acquisition of an Israeli Hi-Tech company.
