Foresight joins leading global industry consortium for development of autonomous heavy-duty vehicles

News

Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd., an innovator in automotive vision systems, announced that it has joined the All Weather Autonomous Real logistics operations and Demonstrations (AWARD) consortium.

Info
The AWARD consortium submitted an application to the European Commission (Horizon 2020) to win funding for a large-scale project aimed at bringing disruptive change to the trucking industry, fleet operators, and the entire logistics sector. The total amount of the grant is expected to total €20 million ($21.6 million), of which Foresight is expected to receive approximately $1 million. Upon grant award, the project will be rolled out in 2021 for a period of 3 years.

Coordinated by EasyMile, the AWARD consortium consists of 29 partners including industry leaders such as Continental (one of the biggest automotive suppliers and expert for automated driving technologies), Terberg (specialist heavy vehicle manufacturer), and Applied Autonomy (leading provider of Smart Fleet Management systems for connected autonomous vehicles). The group seeks to develop and operate safe autonomous heavy-duty vehicles in harsh weather conditions in a variety of different scenarios. Freight transport constitutes an ideal learning opportunity for real-life autonomous truck applications, as it offers controlled environments with few pedestrians, low driving speeds and pre-defined routes.

Foresight will provide its QuadSight multispectral vision solution, composed of two stereoscopic visible-light cameras and two stereoscopic thermal long-wave infrared cameras, the latter provided by FLIR Systems. The QuadSight system offers highly accurate vision sensors to autonomous freight operators, capable of detecting any type of obstacle and enabling safe, uninterrupted driving at all times, even in harsh weather and lighting conditions.
