Foretellix, Virtual Mechanics Corporation (VMC) partner to accelerate adoption of Foretify platform for ADAS and Autonomous Vehicle safety in Japan
Leaders in safety validation and simulation testing sign cooperation agreement to bring coverage-driven verification of ADAS and automated driving systems to Japanese automotive industry
Tel Aviv, Israel – July 2nd, 2020 – Foretellix, an Israel-based start-up with a mission to enable measurable safety of automated driving systems, announced today a new collaboration with Virtual Mechanics Corporation (VMC) to promote the adoption of the Foretify™ platform for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Vehicle testing in Japan.
Developed by Foretellix, the Foretify™ platform, provides intelligent verification automation and analytics of automated driving systems. The platform includes:
- Measurable Scenario Description Language (M-SDL) used to describe both scenarios and coverage goals at a very high-level
- Automation to generate “combinations of combinations” of valid scenario variants along with monitors to check and track scenario coverage and KPI’s
- The ability to aggregate coverage data from across all testing platforms (e.g. street driving, test tracks, simulation, X-in-the-loop)
- Analytics and metrics for developers to know where they are, what to do next and when they are finished.
“We are excited to work with VMC to deliver Foretify™ to the Japanese market. We understand the value of working closely with a strong local partner to support our customers in Japan” said Ziv Binyamini, CEO and co-founder of Foretellix.
VMC has over 20 years of experience and established relationships in the Japanese automotive industry. “Foretify™ is a unique technology that significantly reduces physical testing and dramatically increases development efficiency and safety. VMC is pleased to work with Foretellix to accelerate ADAS and Autonomous Vehicle technology safety validation in Japan,” said Eiji Takita, VMC president and CEO.
Foretellix’s mission is to enable ‘measurable safety’ of autonomous vehicles, enabled by a transition from ‘quantity of miles’ to ‘quality of coverage’.
Foretellix was founded by a team of pioneers in measurable verification and validation, with a highly automated and proven coverage driven methodology broadly adopted in the semiconductor industry. They have adapted and tailored their approach for the safety verification and validation of autonomous vehicles.
Foretellix’s Foretify™ Technology includes an open, high-level Measurable Scenario Description Language (M-SDL), intelligent and scalable automation, analytics and metrics. This includes the functional coverage metrics required to make a compelling ‘safety case’ to consumers, developers, insurance companies and regulators. To learn more, visit www.foretellix.com/.
