Eye-Net Mobile has completed a successful large-scale trial of its Eye-Net cellular-based accident prevention solution and met all predefined criteria set for its success. The announcement was made by Foresight Autonomous Holdings, an automotive vision company, of which Eye-Net is a wholly owned subsidiary.
Eye-Net is a cellular-based vehicle-to-everything (V2X) accident prevention solution 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. It relies on proprietary, cutting-edge technology, a set of sophisticated algorithms and advanced system architecture, and existing cellular infrastructure.
The company informed that more than 8,500 users from across Israel and abroad participated in the trial and the trial demonstrated the technological proof of concept of the Eye-Net solution on a large scale.
The trial marks an important milestone for the company as it transitions from technology to product and commercialization. During the six-day trial, the Eye-Net system provided real-time alerts to users about five events which were considered potentially unsafe by the system. The system operated on a variety of iOS and Android-based cellular phones and was fully functional during the trial.
The company claims the system demonstrated stability and the ability to handle data transfer, supported a wide geographic distribution of users, optimized low latency times, and demonstrated compatibility with a variety of smartphones and operation systems, thus meeting the pre-defined objectives of the trial.
All real-time data collected from thousands of users during the trial by a monitoring and control infrastructure will assist in the completion of Eye-Net’s software development kit (SDK) configuration. An SDK configuration will allow Eye-Net Mobile to integrate its solution and functions with leading location-based applications, such as navigation, ridesharing, parking and fitness applications, and will enable rapid market penetration and commercialization.
According to the company, Eye-Net’s SDK configuration will be ready to serve hundreds of thousands of users by early 2020, and millions of users by the end of 2020.
