Foresight Autonomous Holdings, an Israel-based automotive vision systems company, has joined the University of Michigan’s TechLab at Mcity 2021 in Ann Arbor. The firm will further develop technology for advanced driver assistance systems and autonomous vehicles.
“We are hopeful that collaboration with TechLab at Mcity will enhance Foresight’s vision system capabilities to achieve outstanding performance in any lighting and harsh weather conditions, reduce the rate of road accidents, and save lives,” says Haim Siboni, CEO of Foresight.
The company will participate in the one-year program with a team of students from technical departments at U-M focused on the development, demonstration, and deployment of autonomous vehicle technologies. The team will be mentored by Foresight’s head of algorithm and leading team members.
At the test facility, Foresight will be able to run short-cycle demonstrations to local prospects. Its test facility mimics real communities and roadways and is focused on connected and automated testing.
TechLab at Mcity is a company-in-residence program for early stage advanced mobility companies in the connected and autonomous vehicle industry. U-M students get to work with the companies.
Foresight was founded in 2015 and designs sensor systems for the automotive industry.
