More than 500 start-ups operating in shared mobility, fleet management, big data for transportation, connected vehicles, autonomous driving and e-mobility have made inroads into the mobility economy in Israel. And so far, the result has been successful, as demonstrated by Waze, the collaborative navigation app acquired by Google, Moovit bought by Intel, and tech companies like Mobileye and Valens. The vitality of the sector, a real innovation hub, has not escaped the attention of venture capitalists who are looking to gain access to Israel’s technology and IT start-ups, attracted by the wide range of smart mobility skills on offer. The report produced on the topic by the Roland Berger consultancy highlights, in particular, their expertise in object recognition and tracking for advanced driver assistant systems and in mobility behaviour projections for shared ride services.
