Australian Government Grants Seeing Machines AU$2.25M for collaborative research project of driver monitoring in the heavy vehicle industry

27 June 2016

Seeing Machines Limited, (AIM: SEE), the vehicle operator monitoring technology company, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded an Australian Government Cooperative Research Centre Project ("CRC-P") Grant for AU$2.25M over three years. The grant is toward a collaborative project with Monash University and Ron Finemore Transport Services ("Ron Finemore"), one of Seeing Machines' Guardian Solution™ customers. Seeing Machines were one of ten other companies selected from over 100 applications.

The project builds upon Seeing Machines' Guardian technology platform that actively monitors for and alerts drivers to fatigue and distraction. Titled, "The Future integrated driver monitoring solution for heavy vehicles", the project aims to deliver the next-generation of fatigue prevention and driver monitoring technology.

The CRC-P will use new data analysis methods to understand the behavioural risks in ways that were not previously possible. This brings together 'big data' analytics, simulation and computer vision expertise across Seeing Machines and Monash University to develop a next-generation driver monitoring device that integrates road data and driver data in real-time. Ron Finemore will receive data that supports its proactive safety management and driver wellbeing, which in turn will result in fewer crashes, fewer safety critical events, and improved productivity.

Professor Mike Lenné, Seeing Machines' Chief Scientific Officer, Human Factors commented: "Combining the technology leadership of Seeing Machines, with the research excellence of Monash University, and the industry knowledge from Ron Finemore Transport, this is a unique opportunity to build the next market-leading driver monitoring technology. This is a valuable opportunity to drive product design to enhance safety and the driver experience. Furthermore, it is incredibly rewarding to see the Australian Government recognise the innovation of this proposal and the impact it will have on the heavy vehicle industry and the safety of all road users."
