Passenger Vehicles

For a car to be autonomous, the car requires sensors to collect information about the road and a central processing unit to analyse all the data and make decisions appropriately. When a sensing system can detect any object on any road, and in any lighting or weather conditions, autonomous passenger vehicles gain numerous advantages when it comes to vehicle safety. They reduce the number of traffic accidents, fatalities, and injuries by lowering or eliminating human error. AVs can potentially reduce traffic congestion and time spent on the road and provide time for drivers to engage in other activities. AVs can also give mobility options to those who cannot drive for any number of reasons, effectively improving their quality of life.

Shuttles

Demand for public transportation is on the rise. Smart cities need autonomous public transportation systems that can move the masses using fewer vehicles to reduce pollution and urban congestion. Some forms of autonomous public transit already exist – such as subway trains and monorail systems – and other forms of mass transit are being tested, including passenger rail and bus. Clearly, these vehicles must operate in all-weather conditions to provide a valuable service to the public, maintain high levels of passenger safety, and remain profitable.

Commercial Vehicles

Commercial vehicle operators face many challenges including the manpower required to operate at high accuracy and efficiency. Adding autonomy to commercial vehicles answers many of these challenges as well as brings a host of additional benefits. These vehicles require significant investments and enabling them to operate during inclement weather and poor lighting conditions delivers a clear ROI. Foresight’s technology enables the accurate and effective detection of almost any obstacle including people, animals, and other machinery, at all times. In addition, strict regulations limit the number of hours drivers can log while on the road or while operating heavy-duty vehicles, effectively decreasing capacity. Autonomous vehicles could operate continuously, potentially reducing downtime and cutting costs for construction projects, while increasing capacity.

Heavy Machinery And Agriculture

Agricultural equipment manufacturers are investing heavily in new technologies in order to increase automation of various operations and autonomous driving and are deploying stereo technology for autonomous driving and automatic operations in order to to increase productivity and efficiencies for higher yields. Foresight’s advanced thermal stereoscopic capabilities are designed to bring added value to precision agriculture and automated navigation, covering planting, harvesting and loading crops for shipment, especially in adverse weather and low-visibility conditions where other sensors are challenged.

Defense

Autonomous vehicles offer many advantages on the battlefield. They act as force multipliers while reducing risk to soldiers by keeping them out of harm’s way. They are extremely useful for intelligence gathering, as well as for improving logistics delivery, freeing up army personnel for more strategic tasks. Autonomous vehicles can also serve in disaster relief missions and provide humanitarian assistance, such as providing supplies to remote locations and evacuating the wounded. Foresight’s sensors, allowing for passive detection, provide such vehicles with the ability to adapt to complex conflict zones and operate in the harshest environmental conditions, including off-road driving and zero-visibility sandstorms.

Robotics

Autonomous applications are on the rise, This megatrend does not skip the robotics market for use in multiple applications within the logistics, mining, hospitals, emergency services and more. The robots are required to navigate in dense areas which include humans, machinery and many other obstacles. The requirement for a precise measurement of distance height and locations of the object is high with minimum errors.

Advanced AV Safety

While autonomous vehicles (AVs) are here to stay, safety remains an issue. A lot of effort is being invested into developing sensing technology meeting the autonomous vehicles and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) safety requirements. 

OEMs and other service providers must implement solutions for autonomous vehicles that are robust yet cost effective and capable of operating in even the most challenging conditions. This is where Foresight positions itself as a strategic fit across a range of markets that have a new vision for autonomous vehicles, including passenger cars, public transportation and fleets, commercial vehicles, defense and security platforms.
