Foresight Vision System Installed in Leading Automotive OEM’s Vehicle

Date Announced: 03 Dec 2018

European commercial vehicle manufacturer evaluation marks first ever installation of QuadSight™ prototype.

NESS ZIONA, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (Nasdaq and TASE:FRSX), an innovator in automotive vision systems, announced today that it has successfully delivered and installed its first QuadSight™ prototype system for evaluation by a leading European manufacturer of commercial vehicles. QuadSight™ was successfully installed on the manufacturer’s truck and passed all initial performance testing. The customer will continue independent evaluation of the system’s performance.

A CES 2019 Innovation Award Honoree, the QuadSight™ quad-camera vision solution targets semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicles and is designed to allow near-100 percent obstacle detection with near zero false alerts, under any weather or lighting conditions.

By collaborating closely with the vehicle manufacturer at the prototype evaluation stage, Foresight collects important feedback in order to develop a commercial product that fits the exact customer’s requirements. Customer satisfaction at the end of the evaluation process may lead to future orders of QuadSight™ systems by the vehicle manufacturer for mass production.

“This successful installation marks an important milestone in Foresight’s roadmap,” said Haim Siboni, CEO of Foresight. “We believe that in-vehicle evaluations of the QuadSight™ vision system will clearly demonstrate its advantage over competing systems by its ability to detect any obstacles under harsh weather and diverse lighting conditions. Such evaluations will increase the customer’s confidence in Foresight’s products.”

Using a four-camera vision system based on stereoscopic technology, QuadSight addresses the real-world need for autonomous driving in all-weather and all-lighting conditions and is designed to provide an unprecedented level of obstacle detection accuracy for semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicle safety. Leveraging decades of field-proven security technology and highly advanced image-processing algorithms, QuadSight™ uniquely enables visibility in complete darkness, snow, rain, fog, sandstorms and blinding glare.

Foresight will offer a live demonstration the QuadSight™ vision system at CES 2019, held from January 8–11 at the Westgate Las Vegas, booth #2206. Contact Foresight to schedule a demo.
