Cognata’s Simulation Solution to Test and Validate Foresight Sensors
Cognata, Ltd. announced that Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd., an innovator in automotive vision systems, has selected Cognata as its simulation partner for their stereo/quad camera vision systems. The partnership with Cognata will allow Foresight to test and validate their vision systems across thousands of scenarios, under different combinations of road types, lighting, weather, and traffic conditions.
Simulation provides the only environment to safely test and validate new technologies with a variety of real-life scenarios and edge cases. Cognata uses Deep Neural Networks to accurately model the exact behavior of various sensors, including cameras, LiDAR, and Radar.
“Accurate simulation is essential to our development and testing processes,” said David Lempert, Head of R&D at Foresight. “Having evaluated the leading solutions on the market, we are confident that Cognata’s platform is best suited to ensure accurate and comprehensive testing and validation. Using this platform, Foresight will be able to accelerate the development of its products, while ensuring safe deployment.”
“In order to test every scenario that an autonomous vehicle may encounter, it is crucial that each component and sensor be thoroughly tested and evaluated prior to deployment,” says Cognata CEO, Danny Atsmon. “It takes thousands of tests and retests to prepare the sensors to handle all real-road possibilities. We are happy to partner with Foresight, so that they can thoroughly train and test their vision systems using simulation, to ensure they are adhering to the highest safety standards available.”
