ADASKY wins DEKRA nomination for safety award
- Worldwide engineering organization recognized ADASKY’s thermal camera for its contribution to safety
- DEKRA noted the abilities of ADASKY’s technology include “seeing when other sensors cannot”
Yokeneam Illit, ISRAEL/Detroit, MI USA (22 November 2022) – ADASKY, the maker of the auto industry’s leading thermal-sensing technology for advanced-safety applications, was one of five companies receiving recognition in the 2022 DEKRA Awards for safety.
“We are pleased to receive this recognition from one of the world’s leading safety organizations,” said Yakov Shaharabani, CEO of ADASKY. “It shows that independent experts are recognizing the value of thermal cameras, which complement other kinds of sensors to ensure that auto safety systems perform as intended at night and other difficult lighting conditions.”
DEKRA, one of the world’s largest testing, inspection and certification organizations, recognized ADASKY’s infrared cameras that can provide automotive vision in the dark and harsh weather. This functionality is a key component in creating effective advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), and it is one of the building blocks for future self-driving cars.
“The risks and threats to highly complex value chains and all modern societies are constantly increasing,” said Stan Zurkiewicz, CEO and Chairman of the Board of DEKRA. “The high-caliber submissions for the DEKRA Award 2022 are proof that emerging risks are leading to innovative concepts and groundbreaking technical safety and sustainability solutions.”
The DEKRA Award was initiated to enhance the importance of safety, security and sustainability as a key success factor of forward-looking action. With the DEKRA Award, DEKRA and the media partner WirtschaftsWoche honor best practices in the four categories: safety, security, sustainability, and startups. The awards emphasize outstanding achievements and solutions that make the world a safer place.
