Foresight Automotive is an Israeli company that develops autonomous driving technology. The company has been working on its technology for over two decades and have recently released sensors with thermal vision. Foresight Automotive has now gone into business with one of the major European agricultural and construction equipment manufacturers. The specific manufacturer is yet to be named, however, there is some information regarding the selling points of Foresight Automotive in the agricultural industry.


Part of what powers this deal is Foresight’s QuadSight – a 4-camera vision system that is able to accurately detect obstacles in hard conditions (harsh weather and limited light). This increased stereo ability allows vehicles that are equipped with QuadSight to autonomously navigate around the working sights with limited human control (advancing towards Autonomous Levels 3, 4, and 5 to be more specific).


Auto Trendy’s take:

There is one major agricultural and construction equipment industry player that already has an entire division dedicated to autonomous development. This is of course, none other than Volvo. Foresight Automotive specializes in autonomous vehicle technology, so it would be interesting to see if the secret manufacturer is Volvo, or one of its competitors trying to catch up.
