NESS ZIONA, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (Nasdaq and TASE: FRSX), an innovator in automotive vision systems, announced today the signing of a non-binding memorandum of understanding with a direct importer of several leading vehicle manufacturers to Israel.
The memorandum of understanding covers the terms of an agreement for the sale of Foresight’s Eyes-OnTM system for aftermarket configuration (installation of the product in vehicles after leaving the production line) and integration into the importer's vehicles in Israel.
As a first step, once a binding agreement is signed, Foresight and the importer will carry out a pilot project using a beta version of the Eyes-OnTM system where the system will be integrated into a number of models from the importer’s fleet of vehicles (up to 25 vehicles).
According to the memorandum of understanding, the binding agreement shall stipulate the terms upon which Foresight will provide the importer with the Eyes-OnTM system, following successful completion of the pilot test according to predetermined criteria. In addition, the importer will carry out promotional activities to integrate Foresight’s products into the production lines of the vehicle manufacturers it represents in Israel.
According to preliminary estimates by the importer, the importer's purchasing potential is approximately 21,000 systems over a period of three years from the signing of the binding agreement.
Eyes-OnTM is an advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) and the first product developed by Foresight. Eyes-OnTM is a unique automotive stereo vision system based on two visible-light cameras using advanced algorithms for accurate depth analysis and obstacle detection.
