Seeing Machines Receives Grant to Research and Promote Vehicle Situational Awareness


Human-computer interaction and artificial intelligence company Seeing Machines received a Linkage Project grant to improve vehicle situational awareness using visual and audio sensors.

The Linkage project is a collaboration under The Australian National University and the Australian Research Council.

Towards on-board situational awareness using visual and audio sensors, the official name of the project, will last four years. It brings together experts Professor Stephen Gould and Dr Liang Zheng from the ANU, machines to see Dr. Akshay Asthana, Professor Mike Lenne and co-founder Dr Sébastien Rougeaux.

The grant will support three ANU PhD students and a researcher to use advanced artificial intelligence methods to infer and predict unsafe driver and passenger behavior.

According to the Australian Automobile Association study Cost of Road Trauma in Australiaroad accidents in the country cost around 30 billion dollars.

Many of these accidents were and continue to be caused by human error, including driver fatigue and distraction.

As automotive technology continues to develop and semi-autonomous and self-driving features are introduced into vehicles, the ability to understand how and when humans become sleepy or distracted and use technology to actively mitigate risk associated with these behaviors will benefit society through increased security.

“Research and development is key to the continued innovation of our driver and operator monitoring system technology solution,” says Lenné.

“Being at the forefront of driver and occupant technology and having an unparalleled understanding of human behavior and access to the underlying data is key to our continued success. Programs like this grant help Seeing Machines maintain its leadership position and, more importantly, ensure our customers can deliver cutting-edge features in their vehicles and get people home safely.
