Enabling ‘Passenger-Aware’ Cars

Tel-Aviv-based  Guardian Optical Technologies  announced a $3.1m Series B from Mirai Creation Fund, Goldbell Investments, and Sompo Holdings via TransLink Capital.


Guardian Optical Technologies, established in 2014 and led by Gil Dotan, enables “passenger aware” cars via a multi-layer sensor that can monitor, analyze and communicate everything going on inside the car, e.g. seatbelt reminder, intruder alert, forgotten infant etc.



“Passenger-aware vehicles are becoming more of a necessity as technology in the automotive sector becomes more advanced. Monitoring the interior of a cabin is a key component to ensuring safety and an optimized experience for passengers.” – CEO of Guardian Optical Technologies, Gil Dotan.


“As companies adapt to a new approach to the automotive sphere we are excited to be joining Guardian Optical Technologies in revolutionizing the passenger experience for today’s car as well as the autonomous car of tomorrow.” – Chief Digital Officer of Sompo Holdings, Koichi Narasaki.
