Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd., an innovator in automotive vision systems, announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Eye-Net Mobile Ltd., will start a pilot project with a multi-billion-dollar multinational Japanese electronics company to test its Eye-Net™ Protect cellular-based V2X (vehicle-to-everything) accident prevention solution.
This is the second pilot project the Company announced this month, following the announcement about a pilot project with a multi-billion-dollar global Japanese technology company to test Eye-Net Mobile's solution.
The pilot project will be used to validate and evaluate the software development kit (SDK) configuration of the Eye-Net solution and its technical specifications. Upon successful evaluation, the Japanese electronics company, which implements hundreds of thousands of units of advanced dashboard cameras (dashcams) every year, may proceed to integrate the Eye-Net solution into its dashcams.
According to recent reports by Grand View Research, the global dashboard camera market size is expected to reach around $7.5 billion by 2027. An estimated 36.1 million dashcams were sold in 2019, more than 10 million of which were advanced dashcams. Advanced dashboard cameras come with parking motion detection, GPS support, and Wi-Fi connectivity. These features, coupled with government regulations and increasing awareness regarding vehicle safety, are expected to drive demand for advanced dashcams in the coming years.
“This second pilot project is a vote of confidence from another Japanese company, that reinforces our market penetration strategy, targeting the smart devices and services market, including dashcams, head-up displays, wearable devices, navigation aids, and IoT platforms,” said Dror Elbaz, COO & Deputy CEO of Eye-Net Mobile. “We decided to focus on the Japanese market, which is often characterized by early adopters of new technologies and innovations, enabling quick market penetration. Concentrating on one geographic region will help us to achieve a critical mass of Eye-Net Protect users in a defined area, thus increasing the chance of preventing accidents and saving lives.”
The Eye-Net Protect V2X solution is designed to protect the most vulnerable road users in real time—including pedestrians, cyclists, scooter drivers and car drivers—by providing collision alerts when the road users have no direct line of sight. An SDK configuration allows Eye-Net Mobile to integrate its solution with leading location-based products such as wearable devices, dashboard cameras, navigation aids, infotainment systems, third-party applications and other smart devices.
