Israeli start-up Foretellix has received $14 million in funding to further develop a solution which measures the safety of autonomous vehicles (AV) in a range of scenarios.
Foretellix says its coverage driven verification solution enables developers to test AVs in hundreds of millions of driving scenarios.
Ziv Binyamini, CEO of Foretellix, says: “This funding will help us accelerate the industry transition from ‘quantity of miles’ to ‘quality of coverage’ and broad deployment.”
The company then automates the extraction and analytics of the safety related coverage metrics, which represent the percentage of scenarios proven to work in potential situations and conditions. This solution works with driving platforms such as simulators, test tracks and test vehicles.
The funding round was led by venture capital firms 83North, Jump Capital and Nextgear Ventures.
