Foresight: Eye-Net and SoftBank Corp. Successfully Complete First Phase of Cross-Collision Prevention V2X Project in Japan
The second phase of the project includes deployment of Eye-Net’s location service in SoftBank’s 5G Multi-Access Edge Computing infrastructure
Ness Ziona, Israel, Nov. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (Nasdaq and TASE: FRSX), an innovator in automotive vision systems, announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Eye-Net Mobile Ltd. (“Eye-Net” or “Eye-Net Mobile”), announced the successful completion of the first phase of a multi-phase project with SoftBank Corp. (Tokyo: 9434) (“SoftBank”).
SoftBank confirmed the successful completion of the initial phase of the multi-phase project. We believe that this progress indicates an important step in the collaboration between SoftBank and Eye-Net. SoftBank is anticipating Eye-Net's deployment of its innovative location service within SoftBank's multi-access edge computing (MEC) infrastructure. The eventual potential integration of Eye-Net’s location service is expected to significantly improve the field of connectivity and collision prevention. Successful completion of this integration is a prerequisite for the deployment of Eye-Net’s solutions in the Japanese market.
Eye-Net signed an agreement for a paid proof of concept project with SoftBank, a Japan-based telecommunications and IT operator, as reported by the Company, on August 31, 2023. The project is part of a multiphase work plan which could potentially lead to a commercial deployment of Eye-Net’s solutions in the Japanese market through SoftBank’s multiple business partners.
