Israeli technology leads in auto-tech, wifi-chips, AR in the biggest annual consumer tech platform – the Consumer Electronics Show in Nevada.

Israeli auto-tech tailgate party

Mobileye may have been the highest-profile Israeli technology cruising the Las Vegas Strip, but it was hardly the only startup from Israel to hitch a ride at the show this year. And for Israeli auto-tech, in particular, the convention center felt at times like a Las Vegas tailgate party.

Ness Ziona-based Foresight showed off its QuadSight Vision product. Competing with Mobileye, QuadSight uses four cameras with two pairs of stereoscopic infrared and daylight cameras (which Foresight says exceed a human driver’s ability to see 3D objects in real time) to help self-driving cars avoid obstacles. QuadSight works regardless of inclement weather or poor lighting conditions.

Chips ahoy

CES is not just about cars, of course. The conference, which started in 1967, has long been the go-to event for debuting the latest computer games and speedy chips.

Accordingly, Intel made waves at the show with its new generation of Israeli-developed WiFi chips.

AR and AI

Another Israeli company at CES – this time in the burgeoning augmented reality space – was hardware developer Lumus, which unveiled its new Vision optical engine. Vision allows those wearing the company’s AR glasses to enjoy full peripheral vision with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. That’s the quality of a really good YouTube video.

Ramat Gan-based Intuition Robotics won one of 31 CES “Best of Innovation” awards for its ElliQ, an artificially intelligent “social robot” designed to keep older adults active by engaging them in conversation, prompting them to take their medications or go for a walk, and easily calling up digital content (music, videos, phone calls).
