Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (Nasdaq and TASE: FRSX), an innovator in automotive vision systems, announced today an additional sale of a prototype of its QuadSight™ four-camera vision system, targeted for the semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicle market. The prototype system was ordered by a leading Japanese Tier One automotive supplier. Revenue from the prototype system sale is expected to total tens of thousands of dollars.
Cornes Technologies, Foresight’s distributor in Japan, facilitated the prototype system sale, the first from a Japanese customer. The Japanese Tier One automotive supplier participated in a technological roadshow that took place earlier this year, as reported by the Company on May 14, 2019. The roadshow consisted of live, real-time demonstrations of the QuadSight system to interested parties. Different scenarios were tested, simulating obstacle detection in challenging weather and lighting conditions. Customer satisfaction following initial installation may lead to orders of QuadSight systems by the leading Japanese supplier for mass production.
“This order affirms the importance of our technological roadshow strategy, which offers potential strategic partners the chance to experience our QuadSight system in real time and better understand its outstanding detection capabilities,” said Haim Siboni, CEO of Foresight. “I am confident that the successful roadshow in Japan will generate additional orders of prototype systems from vehicle manufacturers and Tier One suppliers in the coming months.”
By selling additional prototypes, Foresight intends to increase awareness of its unique solutions, address potential customers, and expand its presence with vehicle manufacturers and Tier One automotive suppliers. Foresight believes that closer evaluation of the technology by potential customers may lead to future collaborations in research and development, integration, production and other areas.
The QuadSight system was launched in January 2018 at the Consumers Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Foresight regards QuadSight as the industry’s most accurate quad-camera vision system, offering exceptional obstacle detection for semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicle safety. Through sensor fusion, QuadSight leverages reflected light from visible-light cameras with thermal energy captured by long-wave infrared cameras for robust accurate object detection of any shape, form or material, in all weather and lighting conditions – including complete darkness, rain, haze, fog and glare. By adapting field-proven security technology that has been deployed for almost two decades, QuadSight™ offers autonomous vehicles perception capabilities beyond those of human eyes and reduces the likelihood of accidents and injuries.
