About

About

Today and into the future, humans will always be at the core of what we do – not just the operator of a vehicle but also the passengers that they have onboard and the communities they serve.

Seeing Machines, (AIM: SEE) has over 15 years of research know-how, commercial application and proven expertise in intelligent face and eye tracking technology.

Headquartered in Australia and with operations in North America, Europe, Latin America, Middle East and Asia Pacific, the company pioneers the development and commercialisation of proprietary algorithms and hardware that help machines interpret the human face and eyes in order to understand their state. This Core IP brings to life a range of technology applications that make devices and vehicles smarter, with the intelligence and ability to protect, enable and respond when intervention is required.

Seeing Machines has strategic relationships with world leaders like Caterpillar, Electro-Motive Diesel, Boeing, Takata, Bosch, LG and Panasonic among others.

Well beyond an idea

From an original idea within their robotics lab at the Australian National University, they began to solve complicated technical and commercial equations for which almost all the variables were unknown. Today, over 15 years later, the two key founders of Seeing Machines retain the original passion, determination, and curiosity that formed the genesis of the organisation.

Sebastien Rougeaux, Chief Scientist Machine Intelligence and Tim Edwards, CTO and world recognised driver monitoring solutions engineer, continue to play vital roles in advancing the fundamental science behind our core technology, broadening the commercial applications and influencing the overall strategic direction at Seeing Machines.

Our Story

The Seeing Machines journey began in June 1999 with four researchers at the Australian National University (ANU) who were attempting to teach robots how to see. Instead, they ended up developing the world’s first Stereo Driver Monitoring System.

No one knew it at the time, but that would be the first step towards a company that is now listed on London’s Alternative Investment Market, has a turnover in excess of $23 million, and is trusted by industry leading partners from around the globe.
