Israel’s Foretellix teams up with Japanese automotive conglomerate Denso
The world's second-largest mobility supplier will use Foretellix’s Foretify platform and the newly announced ADAS & Highway solution to advance safety in its new products
DENSO Corporation, the world's second-largest mobility supplier, has selected technology developed by Israeli startup Foretellix for its next-generation automated driving and ADAS (advanced driver-assistance systems) solutions.
Denso is a $47.6 billion global mobility supplier that develops advanced technology and components for nearly every vehicle make and model on the road today.
The collaboration between the companies followed a successful Proof-of-Concept. Denso will use Foretellix’s Foretify platform and the newly announced ADAS & Highway solution to advance safety in its new products. The Foretellix advanced coverage driven verification platform is also set to reduce both development costs and time-to-market for Denso’s new ADAS and automated driving solutions.

"The Foretify platform allows for a significant reduction in cost of failure by identifying bugs, edge cases and unknowns early in the development cycle. Foretify reduces unnecessary recalls, as well as lowering the cost of testing by providing unparalleled productivity gains through automation. It also allows for a reduction in time to deployment of ADAS and automated driving functions by utilizing proven coverage driven methodologies," read the Foretellix press release.
The recently released ADAS and Highway solution provides an out-of-the-box library of scenarios, test suite and a reference verification plan designed to safely deploy current and future generation automated driving functions.
"DENSO considers the quality and safety of its ADAS and autonomous vehicles of the utmost importance," said Tasuku Hayakawa, Manager of DENSO AUTOMOTIVE Deutschland GmbH. “Following a successful pilot earlier this year, DENSO Germany decided to collaborate with Foretellix and to use the Foretify platform with a number of DENSO’s ADAS solutions. We see the potential of Foretellix’s intelligent verification platform to enable DENSO to ensure safety as we scale from ADAS solutions to advanced driving solutions."
“It’s a privilege and an honor to work with DENSO Corporation, a leader in advanced driving systems," said Ziv Binyamini, CEO and co-founder of Foretellix. "We share a common vision on the importance of uncompromising quality and safety. We look forward to working together, combining the power of DENSO’s scale and experience with Fortellix’s coverage driven verification technology."
Denso's 200 facilities worldwide produce thermal, powertrain, mobility, electrification, and electronic systems, with the company employing over 170,000 people across the globe.
