“The successful completion of this financing marks a significant milestone in our ongoing efforts to enhance our capital structure,” said Shahar Hania, CEO of Rail Vision. “The facility strengthens our financial position and improves our ability to accelerate the development and commercialization of cutting-edge solutions in railway safety.
