Co-founder and CEO of Guidepoint Systems in Pontiac. Mueller is a pioneer in the vehicle security and convenience industry and the visionary who conceived Guidepoint. A college dropout, he quit engineering school at the University of Michigan in 1967 to start the first of several automotive electronics businesses. Three decades later, he‘s still creating black boxes that make life safe, secure, and convenient for drivers. He founded and ran Code-Alarm Inc., a public company that engineered vehicle security and convenience brands, including Code-Alarm and Chapman, and also built products for the majority of automakers. In 1988, Mueller developed Intercept, a vehicle tracking and recovery system based on cellular phones, and LORAN, a radio-navigation system that preceded the global positioning satellite (GPS) system. He stepped aside as Code-Alarm CEO in 2000 to become the company's chief entrepreneurial officer and spearhead the development of its telematics system, which is sold today as Guidepoint. Guidepoint uses a state-of-the-art computer module equipped with a GPS receiver, wireless data modem, and vehicle interface component that allows users to ‘talk and listen to the car.' Each unit's unique electronic serial number allows information to be sent back and forth between the vehicle and Guidepoint's Response Center over a nationwide wireless network.
