Foresight Williams Technology invests in dRISK

Foresight Group (Foresight), a listed private equity and infrastructure investment manager, has participated in a £1 million investment into dRISK, an autonomous vehicle (AV) testing and training company.

The investment was led by Foresight Williams Technology (FWT), a joint venture between Foresight and Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE).

Founded in 2014, by CEO Chess Stetson, dRISK is an AI company which promises to revolutionise AV efficiency and safety by training AVs to avoid unexpected real-world “edge case” scenarios. 

dRISK’s solution exposes AVs to edge cases in a different way and in a fraction of the time. It assembles the evidence of what has caused accidents and near misses – both by human-driven vehicles and AV/Advanced Driver Assistance System or “ADAS” enabled vehicles – and reconstructs conditions in simulation with a combination of real and synthesised data.
