The Automatic Emergency Call feature can also improve the safety of drivers involved in car accidents
Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: FRSX), an innovator in automotive vision, announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Eye-Net Mobile Ltd, has achieved significant technological milestones for its Eye-Net™ Protect cellular-based vehicle-to-everything (V2X) accident prevention solution. The advanced features will significantly improve the application’s ability to protect motorcycle and bicycle riders when they are out of direct line of sight, or when they require immediate road or medical assistance, as well as protect car drivers when they require emergency assistance as a result of an accident.
The Motorcycle Industry Council survey found that 10,124,400 homes in the U.S. had a motorcycle. To put this number into perspective, 8% of every U.S. household owns a motorcycle. "Players in the motorcycle industry have expressed interest in ensuring the safety of motorcycle riders. Eye-Net Protect may offer a safety solution that can easily be used by motorists seeking a solution," said Haim Siboni, CEO of Foresight.
The new advanced features of the Eye-Net Protect application include Bike Ahead Notification and Automatic Emergency Call.
Bike Ahead Notification: Eye-Net Protect is designed to protect the most vulnerable road users in real time by providing alerts about potential front and side collisions. Eye-Net Mobile completed a technological infrastructure development that enables automatic real-time informative notifications about cyclists and motorcyclists that are up ahead, even if they are out of the driver’s direct line of sight. By providing "up ahead" notifications, the Eye-Net Protect application helps to keep drivers alert, reduce collisions with road-side riders, and potentially save lives.
Automatic Emergency Call: The Company has achieved a significant technological milestone in the design and development of an automatic emergency call infrastructure. Eye-Net Protect will constantly monitor the behavior of a motorcyclist in real-time and will detect if the motorcyclist was involved in an accident. The rider’s smartphone will automatically send the phone’s exact location and contact a third party in order to request emergency medical and road assistance.
The aforementioned technological developments have generated interest from micro-mobility service providers as well as motorcycle-related companies. The Company is proceeding with commercialization efforts.
