Like other automation technology, autonomous vehicles improve productivity and efficiency. Our goal at Foresight is to equip heavy machinery and agriculture vehicles with the right technologies specifically designed for automated navigation and precision agriculture.
Advanced technologies, such as Foresight’s, provide a myriad of benefits for agriculture and construction machinery. These vehicles can complete standard tasks while operators can handle other high value-added jobs, allowing companies to use their workforce more effectively. In construction, for example, this is critical because of a significant shortage of heavy equipment operators.
Foresight’s advanced thermal stereoscopic capabilities have been developed to significantly reduce risks and add value for agriculture and heavy machinery. For example, accuracy and efficacy in detecting obstacles can help reduce fatigue and stress on human heavy machinery operators, resulting in improved safety. In addition, the use of thermal stereo addresses detection challenges that are caused by dust and fertilizer particles, harsh weather, sun glare and complete darkness, and brings added value to precision agriculture and automated machines.
Our proprietary software-based algorithms create a 3D perception stereo vision that upgrades and amplifies existing vision sensor systems’ performance without requiring new or additional hardware.
Our unique solution allows camera modules to be placed independently apart supporting large baselines without requiring any stringent mechanical constraints or manual calibration allowing higher accuracy at longer distances.
