Foresight Receives Notice of U.S. Patent Allowance for 3D Image Analysis System and Calibration Technology
The allowed patent relates to calibrating imaging devices, matching elements in stereo imaging systems, and creating 3D reconstructions
Ness Ziona, Israel, Oct. 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (Nasdaq and TASE: FRSX) (“Foresight” or the “Company”), an innovator in automotive vision systems, announced today that it has received a notice of allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for its patent application, number 17/982,691, for “System and Method for Stereoscopic Image Analysis.”
The patented technology enables the generation of 3D depth perception from any given pair of cameras, even those that have different optical properties and fields of view. This capability allows for flexible cameras positioning on vehicles, and also enables vehicle manufacturers to leverage different existing cameras that could not previously be used for depth perception. This technology improves obstacle detection and enhances understanding of road conditions for advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) or autonomous driving.
The patented technology includes a method for automatic calibration of cameras and a computationally efficient method for calculating dense depth maps. This technology transforms a pair of cameras and a processor into a high frequency and accurate depth sensor.
This patent serves as the underlying technology of Foresight’s Mono2Stereo™ and Mono2Stereo™ 360° perception enhancement solutions. The Mono2Stereo and Mono2Stereo™ 360° solutions enhance existing vision sensor systems by using proprietary software-based algorithms to create 3D and 360° 3D perception, respectively. These solutions are designed to amplify the performance of existing ADAS sensors resulting in better distance accuracy and more robust active safety features.
Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (Nasdaq and TASE: FRSX) is a technology company developing smart multi-spectral vision software solutions and cellular-based applications. Through the Company’s wholly owned subsidiaries, Foresight Automotive Ltd., Foresight Changzhou Automotive Ltd. and Eye-Net Mobile Ltd., Foresight develops both “in-line-of-sight” vision systems and “beyond-line-of-sight” accident-prevention solutions.
