YOKNE'AM, Israel, March 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ADASKY, a leading developer and manufacturer of state-of-the-art thermal sensing technology for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), autonomous vehicles (AV) and smart city applications, won a strategic contract to supply its thermal cameras for an autonomous vehicle.
ADASKY's Viper thermal camera is a leading high-resolution, thermal perception system with the capability to fill the perception gaps not covered sufficiently by other technologies. The Viper sensor can recognize pedestrians at distances greater than 200 meters – over twice the range of low-beam headlights. Powered by cutting-edge algorithms, the Viper sensor can see and classify vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians and cyclists, as well as animals and inanimate obstacles at distances far beyond high-beam headlights.
Unlike other sensors limited by so-called "edge" cases including complete darkness, heavy rain, blinding sunlight, headlight glare and dense fog, ADASKY's technology works in all weather conditions.
"Thermal sensing is a key component for robust ADAS and AV solutions for all-around roadway safety and optimal vehicle automation, and we are thrilled to see our Viper sensor in production with a forward-looking and innovative OEM," said Yakov Shaharabani, ADASKY CEO.
ADASKY develops and manufactures intelligent, high-resolution thermal sensing systems (LWIR) for vehicle safety and perception applications as well as smart city roadway solutions. Thermal vision systems can see at night the same as during daylight and are not limited by blinding lights or harsh weather conditions, filling gaps in existing sensor suites. ADASKY's experienced team has decades of combined expertise in semiconductors, image-processing and computer vision. Learn more at http://www.adasky.com.
