Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (Nasdaq and TASE: FRSX), an innovator in automotive vision systems, announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Eye-Net Mobile Ltd., has received a notice of allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for patent application No. 16/496,826, for “system and method for preventing car accidents and collisions between vehicles and pedestrians.”
The patented technology involves an accident prevention system that predicts collisions between vehicles and pedestrians. The system is comprised of a dedicated software application installed on a number of mobile devices carried by pedestrians or users riding in a vehicle. Each of the installed mobile devices detects its location and transmits it to a geographic server. The server sends the location of other mobile devices in the same geographic territory, effectively making each device aware of other users around it. The dedicated software uses advanced proprietary algorithms that detect the user’s direction of travel, search for potential collisions and issue a collision alert to mobile users who are of high probability of collision.
