In 2000, Tim co-founded Seeing Machines with three colleagues, to deliver on the fundamental insight that cars would be the world’s first true autonomous robots. Tim leads Seeing Machines’ core technology roadmap, overseeing the company’s teams of engineers and applied mathematicians to deliver world-class human sensing technology to car makers world-wide. This technology is further deployed across all Seeing Machines’ transport sector solutions to enhance safety.
Tim has unparalleled industry knowledge of driver monitoring in an automotive environment, and is passionate about using artificial intelligence (AI) to improve the safety and use of human transport in general.
In his previous role, Tim worked at the Australian National University (ANU) Robotics Systems Laboratory on a wide variety of robotics research concepts, including face- and gaze-tracking technology. In 2001, Tim and other members of the team were recipients of the Australian Museum Eureka Science Prize for Innovation in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) for their ground-breaking work on faceLAB, the world’s first automatic, non-contact face- and eye-tracking system. Before this, Tim worked for CEA Technologies on phased-array RADAR technology, studying its interaction with ocean waves and boat wakes.
Tim holds a BEng (Honours) in Systems Engineering (ANU) and is a co-founder of Seeing Machines.
