Ness Ziona, Israel, March 22, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd.

During the POC, Eye-Net’s location services were deployed on SoftBank’s multi-access edge computing (MEC) infrastructure. This deployment follows extensive testing in diverse environments, including closed areas as well as open roads. The testing confirmed the system performance and full compatibility with both long-term evolution (LTE) and 5G cellular networks, paving the way for connected mobility applications.

As a result of the successful completion of the POC, the parties will initiate sales efforts with SoftBank’s key business partners in order to move forward with the commercial validation of Eye-Net’s solutions for improved collision prevention in the Japanese market.

“We are thrilled that SoftBank has confirmed the successful completion of the technology validation phase and the compatibility of Eye-Net’s technology for both LTE and 5G cellular networks. This milestone marks the beginning of collaborative efforts with SoftBank for commercial validation of Eye-Net’s products in Japan,” said Dror Elbaz, CEO of Eye-Net Mobile. “Eye-Net is grateful to collaborate with SoftBank on the visionary path towards introducing a new social road safety approach. Our collaboration aims to offer an accident prediction and prevention solution that could protect millions of users from non-line-of-sight collisions and contribute to a safer Japanese mobile society,” Mr. Elbaz concluded.
