The company plans to open sales and product development offices in Ohio and New York within the next four months, and is assembling a team of regional sales representatives. The company also is exploring various North American locations for production and warehouse facilities in 2021. 

“Our systems are ideally suited for use by new and used-car dealership groups, major fleets, vehicle auction houses and rental-car companies,” said Amir Hever, UVeye’s co-founder and CEO. “Our deep-learning technology identifies even the smallest exterior defects or problems within seconds and can significantly improve profit margins and customer satisfaction levels.”

Hever said UVeye’s automated vehicle-inspection systems are equipped with high-speed cameras and artificial-intelligence technology to check for sheet metal damage, underbody component problems and tire wear. Its technology also is used by carmakers to improve manufacturing quality and by security professionals to detect bombs, weapons and other onboard-vehicle threats.

North American sites under consideration for future UVeye production facilities include locations in Michigan, Ohio and Texas, as well as several states in the southeastern United States. The company currently has headquarters in Tel Aviv, Israel; Stamford, Connecticut, and Tokyo, Japan. A European headquarters is scheduled to open in Munich, Germany, later this year.
