Seeing Machines Ltd (LON:SEE) welcomed the highlighting of driver monitoring technology in the US National Transportation Safety Board’s investigation into a fatal collision between an Uber automated test vehicle in March.
One of the NTSB report’s recommendations refers to the requirement for “adequate monitoring of vehicle operator engagement, if applicable”.
Seeing Machines' Guardian Back-up Driver Monitoring system was launched last year to provide an in-car tool to monitor and respond to the level of attention of a back-up driver in autonomous vehicles.
“While we recognise the absolute tragedy of the accident that occurred in Arizona last year, the findings and recommendations released in the NTSB report this week are welcome," said Paul McGlone, chief executive of Seeing Machines.
“Seeing Machines is well placed to provide a sophisticated and robust solution to keep drivers, passengers and pedestrians safe and we continue to negotiate with a number of companies who want to continue to advance technology, safely.”
