Earlier today, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo met with Mobileye Founder and CEO Amnon Shashua and toured the Jerusalem facility of Mobileye, a supplier of software that enables Advanced Driver Assist Systems and Autonomous Driving technology, to explore possible applications of its products for New York's mass transit system. The Governor was accompanied by Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa, UDC and Technion Board Member Eric Gertler, and MTA Board Member and New York State Budget Director Robert Mujica.

 

"We have seen tremendous growth in software development for navigational systems to make automobiles safer and more reliable, and if this software works well on the road then we owe it to commuters to test its application for train and rail," Governor Cuomo said. "I met with Mobileye today to discuss the possible application of their technology for New York's mass transit system. The MTA spends millions of dollars on navigational tools, and we want to look beyond the handful of companies who essentially have a monopoly on the rail system to develop a navigation program capable of supporting the 21st century transit system New Yorkers need and deserve."
