Las Vegas, United States – Newsight Imaging Ltd., a developer and manufacturer of advanced CMOS image sensor chips for 3D machine vision and spectral analysis, has announced its partnership with First International Computer (“FIC”) to co-develop advanced eTOF (enhanced-time-of-flight)-based 3D vision systems for the automotive safety market.

The companies have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU), that formalises the collaboration of both parties to work toward co-developing 3D vision system solutions based on Newsight’s NSI9000 depth sensor powered by Newsight’s proprietary eTOF technology.

The cooperation between Newsight and FIC addresses the growing need for highly accurate, reliable and cost-effective 3D depth imaging that enables autonomous vehicles to sense and react to their environment in real-time.

The partnership follows a evaluation of Newsight’s eTOF technology for meeting the automotive safety standard requirements. The agreement sets a direct channel between the R&D teams to facilitate rapid development and fast time-to-market of new game-changing products.

“We are pleased to add FIC to our growing strategic partners list,” says Eli Assoolin, co-founder and CEO of Newsight. “We believe that combining our eTOF sensors with FIC’s excellent system design and market presence will mark a major milestone in our goal to make eTOF the standard for automotive safety systems and beyond.”

“We’re very excited to be working with Newsight and leveraging FIC’s expertise in electronic design for LiDar solutions together with Newsight’s eTOF technology. This collaboration agreement formalises the process for future co-development efforts, which we believe will take the automotive safety industry to the next level,” says Alex Dee, future business division general manager of FIC.
