Geely, Foretellix partner to jump-start self driving car development

JERUSALEM: Geely and Israeli auto safety technology startup Foretellix formed a strategic partnership to accelerate safe large-scale development of self-driving vehicles, the two companies said on Tuesday.

Foretellix and Geely will collaborate to integrate Foretellix’s safety platform with Geely’s development and verification and validation flows and advanced simulator, they said in a joint statement.

The platform will be used to automatically analyse driving logs from Geely's test vehicles and replay numerous variations in virtual simulation to maximise the use of physical drives, they said.

"Our partnership with Foretellix will be crucial in Geely’s quest to overcome safety challenges and commercialise AVs (autonomous vehicles) faster," said ChuanHai Li, vice president of Geely Research and Development.

Last month, Foretellix partnered with Nvidia to automate the process of autonomous vehicle development.
