A non-exclusive distribution agreement has been signed between Seeing Machines and Mobileye Vision Technologies. The agreement will result in Seeing Machines’ aftermarket offering, Guardian, being enhanced as it will be incorporated into Mobileye’s portfolio of products that alert drivers to potentially hazardous or dangerous situations.
Guardian uses Seeing Machines’ proprietary face- and eye-tracking algorithms to detect whether a driver is fatigued or distracted. The solution is permanently connected to a monitoring center and cloud analytics engine that gives fleet owners an array of customizable intervention and analytics options. The system is currently used by commercial fleet drivers in more than 26 countries.
Together, the companies will jointly market the mission-critical products to provide holistic safety solutions to transportation and logistics customers all over the world.
“With the EU‘s updated General Safety Regulation coming into force and awareness around driver safety growing, we are delighted to be working with Mobileye and leveraging their leadership position in ADAS to help realize our shared objective of reducing fatal accidents on our roads,” commented Paul McGlone, CEO of Seeing Machines.
