Real Leaders recently became part of record-breaking history when a new Guinness World Record title was set for the most people using virtual reality displays at a conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Mark Van Ness, founder of Real Leaders was in the audience of 1,867 members of The Young President’s Organization (YPO) at the organizations flagship annual event, the YPO EDGE, when it was announced that a new world record was to be set. Mobileye, the leading supplier of software that enables Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) surprised the gathering of business leaders with a virtual reality experience of riding in a driverless car.

An adjudicator from Guinness World Records was on hand to present Mobileye with a certificate of the Guinness World Records title and share it with the YPO members who were a part of this historic achievement.

Mobileye launched in 1999 with the belief that vision-safety technology will make our roads safer, reduce traffic congestion and save lives. With 27 automaker partners, including some of the world’s largest, Mobileye’s technology has rapidly evolved to support the three pillars of autonomous driving – sensing, mapping and driving policy.

Each year, YPO global chief executives and business leaders gather on a different continent for the YPO EDGE to shape the future of global industries. The 2017 EDGE in Vancouver was designed to spark idea exchange, introduce disruption, and infuse innovation into companies and communities around the world.
