Foresight Partners with One of the World’s Largest Industrial Equipment Manufacturers for POC Project
The Fortune 500 company will evaluate Foresight’s QuadSight® technology to provide autonomous capabilities to its mining and construction trucks
Ness Ziona, Israel, Aug. 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (Nasdaq and TASE: FRSX) (“Foresight” or the “Company”), an innovator in automotive vision systems, announced today the signing of a paid proof of concept (POC) project with the Chinese subsidiary of one of the world’s leading manufacturers of industrial equipment, heavy machinery, construction and mining equipment.
Foresight was selected over other three-dimensional (3D) perception vision solutions due to its accurate and high-resolution point cloud and all object detection capabilities in harsh weather, environment and lighting conditions. A successful POC project may lead to the integration of Foresight’s technology into the industrial equipment manufacturer’s construction and mining trucks.
The industrial equipment manufacturer will evaluate Foresight’s technology to add 360° 3D perception capabilities to its mining and construction trucks, offering an alternative to its existing LiDAR sensors. Foresight’s QuadSight vision solution uses both visible-light and thermal cameras to deliver a comprehensive vision system capable of addressing the driving challenges in construction and mining settings. These challenges include off-road navigation, detection of non-classified objects in dusty surroundings and enabling safe driving in pitch-dark conditions. In addition, the industrial equipment manufacturer will evaluate Foresight’s DynamiCal™ automatic calibration solution to enable continuous calibration of the cameras while its trucks encounter intense vibrations to ensure an accurate 3D image of the environment.
“We are excited to extend our innovative stereo vision solutions to the construction and mining industry. By collaborating with one of the world’s largest industrial equipment and heavy machinery manufacturers, we aim to enhance the safety, accuracy of object detection, and environmental awareness in their operations. This POC project reflects our dedication to delivering advanced automotive vision technologies across diverse sectors,” said Haim Siboni, CEO of Foresight.
