Cellular V2X specialist Eye-Net Mobile is starting a pilot project with a Japanese multinational. The pilot will test Eye-Net’s V2X Protect accident protection system. The Japanese firm could integrate the Eye-Net system into its IoT services.

Eye-Net is a subsidiary of Israeli automotive vision specialist Foresight Autonomous.

The pilot project will be used to validate the Eye-Net solution capabilities and its technical specifications. On completion, the Japanese firm may integrate the Eye-Net solution into its IoT platform which currently serves millions of users.

“This pilot project marks an important milestone on Eye-Net Mobile’s commercial roadmap. The technology company will be the first to evaluate the software development kit (SDK) configuration of Eye-Net Protect. Integration with a global Japanese company has the potential to allow our life-saving accident prevention solution to protect millions of users daily,” said Dror Elbaz, COO & Deputy CEO of Eye-Net Mobile.

The Eye-Net Protect V2X solution is designed to protect the most vulnerable road users in real time – including pedestrians, cyclists, scooter drivers and car drivers – by providing collision alerts when the road users have no direct line of sight.

An SDK configuration allows Eye-Net Mobile to integrate its solution with leading location-based products such as wearable devices, dashboard cameras, navigation aids, infotainment systems, third-party applications and other smart devices.
