German sports car manufacturer Porsche is adopting sensing technology from Israeli start-up TriEye to improve visibility capabilities in ADAS and autonomous vehicles. Part of the Volkswagen AG group, Porsche is adopting TriEye’s technology after making a Series A funding round investment in the start-up in August.

Tel Aviv-based TriEye is developing C-MOS-based short-wave infra-red (SWIR) sensing technology. The technology aims to improve cars’ ability to “see” in difficult conditions, such as fog, dust, rain, and at night. TriEye has developed a C-MOS SWIR camera which Porsche now plans to incorporate into its future ADAS and autonomous vehicle (AV) systems.

“Our collaboration with Porsche has been exceptional from day one and we look forward to growing this potential,” said Avi Bakal, CEO and Co-Founder of TriEye. “The fact that Porsche, a leading car manufacturer, has decided to invest in TriEye and evaluate TriEye’s CMOS-based SWIR camera to help further improve Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is a significant vote of confidence in our technology,”
