Targeted for the rigorous performance requirements of Level 3, 4 and 5 autonomous vehicles established by the Society of Automotive Engineers, QuadSight™ is designed to achieve all obstacle detection with near-zero false alerts under all weather and lighting conditions. Leveraging decades of field-proven security technology and highly advanced image-processing algorithms, QuadSight™ uniquely enables visibility in complete darkness, snow, rain, fog, sandstorms and blinding glare. Foresight’s quad-camera technology vision system fuses two pairs of long-wave infrared (LWIR) and visible-light stereoscopic cameras to achieve an unprecedented and unmatched performance standard for autonomous vehicle vision.
“In 2018, QuadSight’s remarkable vision capabilities were embraced by both automotive manufacturers and industry observers, as Foresight recorded multiple sales of its QuadSight prototype and received a number of innovation awards,” said Haim Siboni, CEO of Foresight. “CES 2019 will offer an opportunity to demonstrate our ability to provide superior obstacle detection in all weather and lighting conditions.”
QuadSight™ combines both reflective visible-light stereoscopic and emissive thermal stereoscopic vision. While visible-light camera systems utilize the same or sometimes less information than the human eye, LWIR imaging adds another layer of information based not on visible light, but on heat emissions. Essential for safety and reliability, stereoscopic vision technology produces exceptional three-dimensional (3D) images that result in outstanding object detection and accuracy for semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicles.
At CES 2019, QuadSight™ will be demonstrated at Foresight’s booth #2206 at Westgate Las Vegas. The QuadSight™ vision system demonstration will be broadcast live several times per day. Interested parties are encouraged to contact Foresight to schedule a demo. The demonstration will be streamed to Foresight’s booth from a test site in Israel, enabling a real-time, driver’s perspective. For a brief video showing the QuadSight™ vision technology, click here. As a CES 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree, QuadSight™ will be on display at the CES Innovation Awards Showcase at Tech West, The Venetian, Venetian Ballroom E/F. A QuadSight™ prototype will also be on display at the FLIR booth #31166, LVCC South Hall.
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.
