Seeing Machines' Guardian Driver Monitoring System covers more than 1 billion km
Seeing Machines Limited (AIM: SEE) ("Seeing Machines" or the "Company"), the advanced computer vision technology company that designs AI-powered operator monitoring systems to improve transport safety, announces today that its Guardian Driver Monitoring System (DMS) has travelled more than 1 billion kilometres, keeping thousands of commercial fleet drivers safe in more than 24 countries, and collecting real world, naturalistic driving data.
Guardian is Seeing Machines' retrofit solution for commercial fleets in public transport and logistics. Guardian provides real-time, in-cabin alerts when fatigue or distraction is detected by sensors that can monitor the driver. It works in all light conditions, including night driving and when the driver is wearing sunglasses. Guardian is connected to a 24/7 monitoring centre and cloud analytics engine that gives fleet owners a variety of customisable intervention and analytics programs.
Since its launch in 2016, Guardian has been used in commercial trucks and buses covering more than 1.3 billion km (812 million miles) and has detected over 3.6 million fatigue and distraction related driver events.
This data is critical to the Human Factors research and development and provides the platform from which the Seeing Machines automotive grade driver monitoring technology has been developed and refined. This real world, on road data enables Seeing Machines to offer market leading driver monitoring technology based on highly comprehensive and meaningful information.
Ken Kroeger, Seeing Machines CEO, said:
"The 1.3 billion km of data we have gathered since launching Guardian underpins our clear market leadership in the development and deployment of effective driver monitoring systems that demonstrably enhance transport safety across a range of verticals.
"In addition to the positive impact Guardian has on driver safety, the data collected has provided Seeing Machines with a robust machine learning platform and has played an integral role in the development of our FOVIO DME (driver monitoring engine)."
