Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: FRSX), an innovator in automotive vision systems, today announced that its QuadSight™ vision system has been named a 2019 CES Innovation Award honoree in the Vehicle Intelligence and Self-Driving Technology category.
Foresight’s quad-camera vision system was selected from a highly competitive pool of participating innovative CES products.
Focused on the stringent demands of autonomous vehicle vision needs, QuadSight™ is designed to achieve near-100% obstacle detection with near-zero false alerts under all weather and lighting conditions, including complete darkness, snow, rain, fog, sandstorms and blinding glare. Leveraging decades of field-proven security technology and highly advanced image-processing algorithms, Foresight’s quad-camera technology combines two pairs of long-wave infrared (LWIR) and visible-light stereoscopic cameras to achieve an unprecedented performance standard for autonomous vehicle vision.
“Developing safe autonomous vehicles is one of the great technical challenges of our time, and it demands innovation in all aspects of design and implementation,” said Haim Siboni, CEO of Foresight. “We are honored that the CES Innovation Award judges have recognized the far-reaching innovation required for the QuadSight™ system to achieve vision perfection under all weather and lighting conditions.”
Essential for safety and reliability, stereoscopic vision technology brings exceptional three-dimensional (3D) images for outstanding detection and accuracy to semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicle vision systems. While visible-light camera systems utilize the same or sometimes less information compared to the human eye, LWIR imaging adds another layer of information based on emitted waves. By combining visible-light stereoscopic and thermal stereoscopic vision, QuadSight™ enables exceptional visual precision with 3D objects in real time, whether the objects are large or small, in motion or static, or detected from short or long distances.
At CES 2019, QuadSight™ will be demonstrated at Foresight’s booth #2206 at Westgate Las Vegas. Contact Foresight to schedule a demo. For a brief video of the QuadSight™ vision technology, click here. As a winner of the Innovation Award, QuadSight™ will also be on display at the CES Innovation Award Showcase in Tech West, The Venetian, Venetian Ballroom E/F.
The CES Innovation Awards is an annual competition that recognizes two levels of honorees across 28 product categories. A panel of judges, including designers, engineers and members of the tech media, reviews submissions based on design, functionality, consumer appeal, engineering and how the products compare with competition. CES 2019 will showcase more than 4,500 exhibiting companies, including manufacturers, developers and suppliers of consumer technology hardware, content, technology delivery systems and more.
