Seeing Machines Limited, the ACT’s company that took out the ACT Chief Ministers Export Awards Small to Medium Services category last year, has gone from strength to strength since winning the award. Seeing Machines Limited was a technology company birthed in Canberra and spun out of ANU.
Seeing Machines is an award winning technology company with a focus on vision based human machine interfaces. The technology platform is based on world-leading computer vision processing technologies that allow machines to see and track human faces and certain facial features. These technologies lead to the development of devices that improve road safety & save lives, help manage eye disease and prevent loss of eyesight.
Earlier this year Seeing Machines signed a strategic agreement with Caterpillar Global Mining LLC., the world’s leading manufacturer of mining equipment, for in-cab Fatigue Monitoring Systems for use in mining machines. The agreement covers a supply and support agreement of the Fatigue Monitoring Systems through the global Cat® Dealer network and progresses to further phases that include joint product development and technology licensing agreements.
Obviously fatigue and safety associated with large mine trucks is a big issue for mining sites around the world.
“The safety of our mining customers’ employees is a paramount issue to us,” said David Edwards, Safety Solutions Manager for Caterpillar Global Mining. “Seeing Machines delivers both safety and productivity benefits to the mining industry. Going forward we see even closer integration between what in-cab fatigue monitoring can deliver in both intervention alerts and analytics to improve safety and performance.”
